Message in a Bottle...

As the lucky recipient of more than a few delivered bouquets,
 I have a box full of little flower water vials.
One of my favourite ways to re-use them is to slip a handwritten message, quote or poem inside.
They can then be tucked into a gift, lunchbox or suitcase (they are a wonderful surprise to find while traveling away from home) ♥
 For something a little different, I turned this one into a necklace .  The plastic tip already has a slit (for a rose) which allows you to slip a bead chain through easily.  Write a special message on a small piece  of paper, roll paper and wrap a few times with twine to hold.
Embellish by adding a little  lace around the lid, a small decorative bead to the bottom, and a pretty charm to dangle from the chain.
 What an honour to have my creations published in this fabulous magazine.

It's Wednesday which means Downton Abbey ... Yeah!!!!
