Cross Bottles by Artie Vanderpool



Since it tis the season for giving I have put together a month of giveaways for YOU as a 
thank you for following and reading the blog.  It's my small way to say "thank you" and to let you know how much I appreciate your continued interest and support, and how grateful I am to those who take the time to leave comments.  
It means so much to me to have you here.

I'm guessing most of you know my friend Artie Vanderpool, of the blog Color Outside the Lines?!  Artie has been blogging for about 6 years now- and was one of the first "design bloggers" on the scene. He is a talented designer who works in the Buffalo, New York area, and also has clients in Florida.  Artie is not only an interior designer, but is an artisan as well- he makes the most beautiful Cross Bottles!
In 2007 Artie started crafting unique works of art out of antique/vintage chandelier prisms, and sea life that had washed ashore.  Crafting with metal he masterfully places them atop antique and vintage bottles creating one-of-a-kind works of art.  From literally hand-digging the bottles from antique dump sites to sourcing chandelier prisms from around the world,  Artie maintains complete creative control, resulting in a finished bottle that is not only an artisan piece, but is also made with love!











 Artie said, "When I first started making bottles it took some time to get it right, but once I did, the first bottle I ever sold had a beautiful little four-point crystal cross, with five individual octagonal prisms hugging the joints.  To this day it remains a very special design for me, and is also one of my best sellers."

Artie has graciously offered to giveaway three of his special, best-selling Cross Bottles to three of my readers. The bottles have a retail value of $70 each.
The first winner will have first choice, the second winner.....
Here is the beautiful giveaway collection!


Number 1 is the frosted bottle on the left in the group photograph.


The second bottle is taller clear bottle in the middle in the group photograph.



And the third bottle is the smaller clear bottle on the right in the group photograph.


To enter the giveaway, please visit Artie's shop: Cross Bottle Guy, then come back and simply leave a comment! 
Once again, if you are commenting as anonymous please remember to include your email addresss, and if you are entering with a google account, please make sure there is an email associated with the account.  The giveaway will run for 3 days and will close on Saturday, December 21st at 8 p.m. EST.  
  The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada only (sorry to all others.)
The winner will be contacted via email.

Artie has also marked down all his current inventory on his website 20% for all my readers for the duration of the giveaway!  Now is a wonderful time to start building a collection for yourself, or for someone on your holiday list!!  Artie is always adding new inventory, so be sure to check the website often.


The giveaway is now closed.

Artie Vanderpool's Cross Bottle giveaway ended with 196 comments; however, three of those comments were replies with email addresses that were forgotten in the original entry, the fourth was a comment of support by someone (Michele) who did not wish to be entered.  That left a total number of true entries at 192.  A random sequence generator chose the following entries.


The winners are:

Wenda
Lynn
Jo

Congratulations!

These bottles are a work of Art! I am from New Orleans, LA. and had a friend that was in construction and when his worker were digging on different properties they would find these great treasures and give them to me. I had such a beautiful collection that I would display in my windows but Hurricane Katrina took them. Once in a Purple Moon I stumble open the old bottles at Goodwill or Antique Shops. Your bottles are outstanding! Merry Christmas. Melinda

You have to love an artist with a company name that just speaks the facts - Cross Bottle Guy {it's perfect}. Artie has been busy, most of the pieces are marked 'sorry, I've been added to a private collection'. Easy to see why they sold, the designs are nice.
