the tables at the reception.

It's a very cost effective way to add beauty
to a country wedding.

Don't like the graphics on the bottle?
Or maybe can't get the bottle clean enough?
Cover it up!
Back to my own shop, I posted this photo on my

Aren't these pretty little bottles? I assume they held perfume. Are you a perfume wearer? I did some when I was young, but not anymore. The older I get, the more I can't handle the flowery smells. Too bad it's not fashionable to smell like a cinnamon roll - that I could do. Haha. I like men's cologne. I kept my dad's cologne after he passed. I open it once in a while and take a sniff, and it's like he is standing right beside me. The power of smell.....
