Vintage Fridays and ACEO Vintage Perfume Bottles

"Vintage Perfume No.1"
2.5 x 3.5 inches
$16.50 at Etsy.com

I love receiving Etsy Finds in my inbox, and Fridays are the best. The theme is always Vintage, and I just love it. So in staying with the Etsy theme, I've decided to try and do my own Vintage Fridays here.

Today I've painted 2 Vintage Perfume bottles in ACEO size. Because I have no idea how many I'll paint in this series, I've named them by numbering each one (inspired, of course, by other famous perfumes!)

the off center compositions make the works really unique :)

Hi Kim, lovely to see you've come up for air from the Olympics viewing lol...I'll be happy to send out the calico kitten after the weekend.

I love painting little glass objects, and these are so nice and small that it isn't too time-consuming - I should be able to put together a small series by next week.

hello again Christy..
our little treasures arrived in the mail today...it's been so hectic here lately ..so none of us had checked our letter box...
both Charlotte and I are absolutely bowled over...you must have such excellent eyesight to get the excellent details in these gems...they are superb!!!
I'm off to the framers next week to have them framed...
we did a lot of oohing and ahhing when we opened the package..and we both love your little envelopes and stickers ...and your handwriting is soooo artistic..
thank so much you have made our Sunday over here :) :)
...have a lovely one over there...

ps looking forward to seeing the rest of your glass bottle series :)

pps I will have a look at more of your kitty cats for Kelly's birthday in November..I would like to have a series framed ready to give to her :)

Kim - so pleased to know they arrived promptly! I find if I can keep my packages within the limits for "letter" post then they don't seem to encounter the delays that parcels do.
My eyesight, well it's almost perfect with these extra-strength glasses (otherwise it's all just a blur of colors :)

It always gives me such a warm feeling to read feedback once my artwork is received. Knowing that my little pieces of art made you smile totally makes my day.

Hope you had a great weekend!
