MILK BOTTLES

I've been seeing a lot of these lately. Honestly, they just do something to my soul. I love that you can put juice in them for the breakfast table or flowers to brighten your day or even crayons! So many great ideas and I am sure there are many more. Here are a few of my favorites:
Glass from Three Potato Four (8oz & 32oz sizes).


Porcelain (and we all know how much I love porcelain) from Alyssa Ettinger
(she never ceases to amaze me with her ideas).


Vintage bottles on eBay.
My dear friend Mary has gotten me all addicted to eBay.

If you're willing to do a little work and a little driving, get on craigslist and search for 'milk bottles.' I found these babies.
They are 45 min from my house and the whole shebang is $15.

If you're interested to read more about milk bottles and their popularity, you can read about them on wikipedia here.

Stop it! Now I want to start collecting these, too. I need help!

P.S. Shouldn't I be working right now? That answer would be yes.
