I went to a friend’s house last week, and was admiring a collection of various mismatched cobalt blue bottles she had on her windowsill. It looked amazing, and I have always loved the intense poison-bottle blue colour.
Then I remembered I actually had loads of blue bottles I used to collect sat on top of the cupboards in my kitchen, collecting dust! I had got bored of them to be honest, and never really found anywhere to put them in this house where they looked good.
Instead of being on a shelf, I just needed to put them on a windowsill. Something which I couldn’t have done until recently as our (now sadly too decrepit) cat would have knocked them off, or the kids would have.
Anyway, I got them down and after a good wash out, put them on the windowsill in the kitchen, and I’ve been really cheered by the sight of them whenever I go in. Now, there’s something for nothing!
