A leaving present - A decorated bottle of wine

My lovely friend Wendy is leaving Novartis on Friday after nearly 3 years with us sooooo... as I know she is a lover of red wine I thought I'd spice the bottle up abit that I got her :O.

All I've used is 1 sheet from the K&Co Addison speciality paper pad, (do so love K&Co papers), some flowers from Boyes, a bit of lace, a tulle bow and some gold cord. Oh and a few eyelets.

This is the front of the bottle

and this is the back.

Not brilliant photos due to the poor lighting (only took them a few minutes ago) - did mean to get them done when I got in from work but hubbys tea took preference (a Sainsbury curry)!!!

Well thats it for now - off to ring Sue and then watch House TTFN x


  1. oh love the lacing up the back I would need to undue that after drinking the bottle if I was wearing it. It looks so delicate.

  2. Great idea Polly, I'm sure she will love it, that is if she can bare to open it because it looks so pretty - say 'HI' to Sue for me xxxx

  3. Oh this is beautiful, a 'vintage' wine if you ask me.......She'll be thrilled and amazed by it Polly. See ya soon.

  4. What a beautiful way of presenting a bottle, so much nicer than the usual bags. I love House too, one of my fav ever tv shows, take care Polly XXX
