Marie style bottle

This is my version of the altered bottle, I tried to make it look like it would be on Marie Antoinette's dressing table full of something exotic and wonderful.
I made the flowers, the fuchsia's are made form silk ribbon and hand dyed, the others are crafted from satin ribbon. The lace is from my vintage stash and I used a page out of a french book as back ground and then the word Paris in bold letters, for contrast.
I think this is my favorite part. the cap. the blue berry is made from satin ribbon and the pink ruffle is that wonderful seam binding, the lace ruffle is entredeux lace also from my vintage stash. This bottle would be so pretty on a vanity table, in a guest bath, or make a darling gift for someone or yourself.
