Hoarding tendancies

I'm  a bit of a hoarder.  I keep things "just in case" and since I learned that I can make something out of most things I had hoarded even more.  This year I promised myself that I would start using some of that stuff up.

I bought 3 sets of wings a couple of years ago.  They are Christmas decorations.  I think I paid about 50p each for them and when I saw them I just knew they would work on some thing at some point. They were in the drawer so long that I forgot they were there.

This is what the bottle and wings turned into.

I have used an applique, lots of flowers, pearls and a Fernli Designs frame and heart on the front after painting the bottle (labels removed of course).

Side view

The lace on the back is part of a larger piece that came from a wedding dress (not mine) and the pearls down the back worked perfectly with it.

I made this one for myself, but I am considering making another so that I can do a tutorial.

I'm just putting together ideas for a DT make.  I will keep you posted on how that goes.
