For Good Measure: Bonnie Forkner

Hello lovelies!  It's so nice to meet you, and I'm so excited to be posting on good measure today!  Ever since i saw these shots from johnny miller (also in the latest martha stewart magazine), I've become a little obsessed with vintage bottles.  I love to give my home depth by mixing old finds with new items, and collecting bottles seems to be my latest way of doing it.

Whether it's grouping them by color, using them as vases, or just setting them in a windowsill, they make me wonder how they were used.  I just love the story they tell and the eclectic look the give!
