Weekly Favorites: In Love with French Aqua Antique Glass

Hello everyone! I am so happy to be able to share some of these wonderful antique French glass bottles and jars we just got in.  It’s been a great afternoon for a photo shoot here in the garden, the sun shone brightly, and as you can see our lavenders are coming back in full force.

Each and every one of these antique French glass pieces is wonderful.  Most are hand blown, some into a one piece mold, others have a line to show that they were blown into a two piece mold.  I chose only pale aqua blue glass this time, it’s such a pretty color!  Especially when the light hits it just right, as in these few photographs.

The Demijohns were wine flasks, each is hand blown and so beautiful. The perfect vase for a few flowers, or just to display as an objet d’art.  I have seen these used as a great decorative accent filled with “used” wine corks from special vintages too. Don’t you just love this pale aqua color?

These vintage French yoghurt bottles are so pretty, to use to serve drinks, milk, or as a vase, they bring French Country charm everywhere.  Sometimes here at home I line them up on our table, to hold a single bloom, or  I put them in one of our antique bottle carriers.

One or more just give every setting a special French farmhouse feel, don’t you think?

Our latest antique glassware finds are available now in the shop: HERE for demijohns and HERE for the Pickling Jars and Yoghurt Bottles.

Thanks so much for reading my blog…I love to share my finds and days with all of you.

    These have such a very pretty color, wonderful to use for flowers. I particularly love the yoghurt bottles, they look so nice with the hydrangeas.
