A wee bit of creating...

Several years ago Poppa found an old bottle when he was clearing some trees. This bottle is well over twenty years old.  I'm assuming it is an old perfume bottle.  It had no top or stopper.  I have had it sitting in my kitchen window all of this time.....begging for a lid of some sort.

The inspiration finally *struck* and I made a sweet topper for this bottle.  The little girl is made of paper mache using one of my vast collection of vintage antique reproduction molds. She is painted with acrylics and chalks, stained and adorned with vintage Cluney Lace and tea stained cheesecloth.  I love how this old bottle now has a new life.  Creating is good for the soul.
