Bottles with a purpose

A bouquet of freshly picked flowers (gerberas) and reused bottles.... This is how I decorate my place: with clean bottles of wine and olive oil...
A late contribution to Earth day... these flowers go to Today's Flowers that display the most gorgeous flowers around the world on a weekly basis.

I'll be the guest on May 10th, so watch that space!

Hi Cris,
I love to have little bouquets throughout my home, but never really thought of using my recycle containers in this way!
Yours look so cheery!

so beautiful and so green. I am so glad that we think alike , Cris. I have been trying to apply the concept of re-use extensively at my home too. Al can are no longer sent for recycling: they are used as pen stands etc. Egg cartons are used to store my collection of earrings......so on and so forth....it will be so nice if we can trade tips on how to use "reuse" concept more :)

Great shots and I love the idea of the bottles for vases. Also, the photos on the main meme page are beautiful. :-)
