Bottled Bliss:

DSC 0164

These bottles were given to my mother -in-law by her daughter, Anne.  They sat on the ledge of her kitchen window.  I had always admired them and the way they caught the light.  One day I snuck over there like a thief in the night and “borrowed” them for a photo session.  There are three bottles in all, but after trying different arrangements, this is what I liked best.  The bottles were returned and the paints came out.  Trying to get the feel of glass as well as the reflections on the cloth was a challenge.  I am pleased with the results.   Something more than the glass was needed so I included the Rose of Sharon, one of my mother’s favorite bushes.  Now, both of our mothers are represented here.
