Vintage Milk Bottles

Priddy Bottles
I won a lovely set of vintage bottles with some gorgeous stripy straws from Priddy Priddy who sell gorgeous gifts.  I'm very lucky as they are fabulous and I had been secretly wanting such bottles for a while. A million thanks to Nicola at Priddy Priddy :)

 It was just a question of what to use them for first. I have such nostalgia for drinking my milk at infant school from bottles with a little plate of cut apples at the side, so it will be nice to recreate that.

Alternatively I thought I'd put some froggy Chrysanthemums-salvaged from a past its prime bunch of flowers, into each bottle to complete my Halloween table. I know it's early but we are having an early party for the Little and Junior Birds before half term holidays and to take part in the Halloween Party at A Fanciful Twist.

Halloween Table
I'm having a little foot off the gas moment with the blog at the moment as i'm at college learning Web Design, so in order to practice my new skills I'm using time I'd normally spend blogging. I only wish there were more hours in the day! See you Saturday.

Congrats on the win - I bought some of those ages ago, but as yet have not used them. I'm so useless.

I love vintage milk bottles too. With those pretty straws. Don't know what I'd do with them if I had them but they are just so lovely to look at!

I remember drinking milk from those bottles, but the milk was always warm.

Congratulations on the win, those little milk bottles are so cute. I remember drinking from them through stripy straws when I was at school, though I was never fond of milk and being made to drink it put me off it for life. There's never enough hours in the day to do everything you want, if only we had another couple of hours.

I remember way back on my younger years of existence, my mom would definitely carry this milk bottles right into the fridge. Today we could use it as home decors.:D

Those vintage milk bottles are so memorable in my childhood years. My mom always bring this one for me because she knows I love milk so much.
