Why you should order a gin and tonic on your next flight...*winks*


Upcycled-bottle-with-beads

So what drink do I order when I get on the plane? Gin and tonic. I always thought it was what "old" people drank till I tried it. It is surprising refreshing actually. And the bonus? These miniature gin bottles. [No prizes for guessing how many bottles I took...*LOL*]


They are super cute and make excellent decorative pieces....



I added some washi tape and beads for my project for LESSology Challenge #26: Feel the bead. And yes, yet another Prima resin bird. :)

Add a bunch of small flowers and water and you have you sweet little vase too! :)

P/s: Come play along with the challenges at Let's Get Trendy Now!3 - they end on 30th June!

The old G&T, eh??? I'm not a drinker, but it sounds like you need a hat, gloves & 50's dress to go with it.....but how you decorated the bottle sorta works in the same 50's vibe way!!!! That washi tape is YUM:):):)
