Altered Art

I just wanted to take a quick minute to share a project today.
Over the past few years I've altered and added embellishments to empty  bottles.
No... I don't do whiskey (I'm a wine or beer gal) 
...but my hubby loves a nice glass of Balvenie now and again. 
I really like the shape of this particular bottle and think that items like 
this can be nice little conversation pieces. 
I added burlap, ribbons, florals and charms and even a few stick pins.
The larger pin is a custom piece by my friend Ana Garcia.
 That big chunky bow is probably my second favorite part of the piece...
I scored it on the clearance rack at StampinUp for less than 2 bucks!
The photo below shows where I've
tied ribbon through an eyelet to keep track of the pretty embellished topper.
The crinkle ribbon is from the 3 Girl JAM Celebrations Bundle.

 My mostest favoritest part of this piece is the sentiment.
Isn't that great advice?
That's all I have for today. 
Have a beautiful day today!
