Isn't this altered piece wonderful? Yes, it is. I was so lucky to win Sandi's (Wayside Treasures) giveaway. She has a shop where she sells these lovely pieces. The pictures do not do justice to these lovely works of altered art. When I first held it and could look at it up close I was truly impressed with Sandi's work. Her attention to detail and impecable work are evident. Trust me when I tell you that the photos do not do justice to them. When I won, Sandi instructed me to visit her shop to pick one of her items for my prize. My first impression when I saw this bottle in her shop was that it was like one of the smaller bottles I have been lucky enough to find, but this bottle is much larger. I have altered a few smaller bottles for a Halloween Swaps. Of course they were not as decorated as sweetly as the one's Sandi makes. I look at it now and have to admit how much I love the patina, the cloudy areas formed over time on these bottles. Sandi has managed to pair this with an assortment of aged papers, soft seam binding, bits of jewelry and lace. If you would like to purchase one of these wonderful treasures for yourself, take a moment to hop over to Sandi's blob and visit her shop Wayside Treasures. I believe she is having a sale right now also!
