Embellished Can and Bottle

Isn’t it cool to think that a tin can from last night’s green beans can become a beautiful piece of décor for your home? Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage shows just how easy it is, especially if you’ve got some bling in your jewelry box that rarely sees the light of day.

Shannon painted one of her many saved tin cans and an old bottle and then distressed them with steel wool to allow the metal and glass to peek through. She jazzed up the bottle with a sparkly doodad from an unused ponytail holder and the tin can with a ribbon scrap twisted into a rose. Shannon points out that these pretty containers would be great for holding flowers, craft supplies, make up brushes… you name it!

  14. The web has truly changed the way we communicate and made it far easier to stay informed about the lives of our loved ones.

    They only want your money and they want as much of it as
    they can possibly get. Make certain that the payment gateway you are making use of, permits similar languages as the remaining of
    the web pages so that they can match well together.

  15. Understanding both advantages and disadvantages are important in order to choose the best internet marketing strategy.
    The says of free proxies and tunnelling services are over, and
    as the Chinese government begins to tighten its grip on what comes in and
    out of the country informationally speaking, the need for a
    vpn to bypass internet censorship in China grows
    every day. It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give him props for not going too far
    in either direction.
