Pop Bottle Flower Frog

When all else fails get creative!

While setting the shop up I kept tripping over a galvanized boiler that I had stashed a load of pop bottles in when I had no better place to store them.  So when I was faced with the dilemma of figuring our how to display the amazing pussy willow branches I had just gotten into the shop, I literally tripped over my solution. 

My boiler full of vintage pop bottles. 

Fresh Cut Pussy Willow Branches

Stick the branches in the bottles.

Stack the bottles into the container.  These are quite heavy so they work great!

And ta-da!  

Now go out and find some branches and bottles and do some arranging!


  1. Nice. Isn't it funny where inspiration can come from? I like the idea of using the vintage bottles too, for something unique.

  2. So smart. Love the nail bin in your last entry!

  3. Love your creativity!!! I have a booth, too, and sometimes you just have to think outside the box to fit everything in. Thanks for the great idea!!!

  4. Love the pop bottles stored in your boiler. Congrats on opening a shop! I also just started a vintage business. I have my shop set up in my home, but mostly sell on etsy. I just added your esty to my favorites and my circle. Hope your business does well!
