Vitamins In A Bottle

I just love bottles.  Whenever I’m at a yard sale or at a thrift store, I’m picking them up.  I’m starting to get quite a collection.  This is just a few I’ve pictured here.  I love their shapes and sizes. 


I wanted to start displaying some of my bottles so I took three of my bottles and turned them into my vitamin holders. 


I took some trim and beaded tassels I had on hand and hot glued them to the neck of the bottle. 

Now my vitamins are part of  one of my kitchen vignettes.


Using another one of my jars, I  made  an apothecary jar that holds our dog Duncan’s Treats.  You can read about it here.




I love this picture!  It is a picture of my three grandsons taken last year at Christmas. 

You know the old saying “out of sight out of mind”  well now that my vitamins are on my kitchen countertop and not in a cabinet, I’m taking them every day. 


I have some other creative ideas using some more of my bottles and jars so more will be forthcoming.


P.S.  Thursday’s  parties I’m linking to:  Strut Your Stuff Thursday @ Somewhat Simple, Get Your Craft On @ Life As Lori and The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday.  


  1. Gail -- no wonder you love bottles, you perform magic with them. You are truly a master of vignettes. The grouping looks beautiful!

  2. Gail,
    I like collections and collecting things but I LOVE useful collections and you have mastered that! I collect tea cups and teapots but they don't sit in a display case unused. My rule is that if I collect it then I can/have to use it too. I LOVE what you've done with your bottle collection and look forward to seeing what other fabulous things you come up with for them!

  3. I love the decorated vitamin bottles. They look like little works of art....not vitamin bottles!

  4. perfect idea! i have a big "family" sign that I keep on my counter and hide all the pills/vitamins/whatnot behind!

  5. I love your bottle display..and especially I adore the charming picture of your 3 grand boys... priceless. Taking care of your self via vitamins for those handsome babies is what your viggenette speaks to me of.

  6. Gail your idea for dressing up your vitamins is just beautiful. Perfecrt place for them and oh they match so well.Can't wait for the rest to come.

  7. Cute ideas and your vignette made me smile-enjoy!

  8. Gail,
    Those bottles look GREAT...what an awesome idea!


  9. Wonderful vignette, some really creative ideals to make your bottles unique. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Well, that is just so clever. I would never have thought of that, but what a great idea. I love your vignette too. It is beautiful, and everything is arranged so beautifully. The apothecary jar is gorgeous. I love seeing a picture of the grandchildren in the vignette. That is just perfect. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  11. Hi Gail...

  13. You really know how to transform bottles into little works of art! So pretty.
    I saw that your Jordan is in Afganistan. Thank you so much for his service. I said a prayer for him! God bless and protect him... and comfort you with peace!

  14. This is a great idea! I need to do the same thing and I would remember to take my vitamins. You did a great job!
