The Cross Bottle Guy!

During the One Room Challenge, I had some very helpful and super funny!  email exchanges with Artie Vanderpool of Color Outside the Lines - aka the Cross Bottle Guy.  Artie is an Interior Stylist and artist living and working in Western New York and he creates the most wonderful and unique bottles made using the antique copper foil stained glass method.  Artie generously sent me two of them - they're now my new favorite accessory!  I had moved all the coral from the dining room into the family room so they fit in perfectly on these shelves.


the beautiful blue coral on the vintage ink well and

the gorgeous shell on the old blue bottom

 or maybe this one should go here…


or stay together…



Be sure to check out Artie's selection here where I'm sure you'll find the perfect gift for someone special or yourself!



Above shells from a happy client. Love this grouping.


Thank you Artie!

How beautiful. I am sure Artie does not remember me, but he designed my first 'button' when I started blogging. He is so sweet.
