Project SoBo - Hanging Apothecary Bottles

Post-Christmas at SoBo usually means a project or two in store for us. This time we had a vision of floating glass bottles for our new window display. Below you can find the step by step process for those DIYers out there.
Step 1: Cleaning the vintage bottles

Step 2: Figuring out which bottles to start with.
Step 3: Getting our supplies together, we decided to use floral wire.

Step 4: Getting the right knots and twists was a process of trial and error, but once you got started it was hard to stop.
Step 5: Different sized bottles created some visual interest and our measurements allowed us to string together about 3 or 4.
Step 6: The last step was hanging the bottles and adding some dried flowers.
We couldn't be happier with how these turned out!
The finished product in the window
Another successful project SoBo!

We had a great time conceptualizing and executing this project and we hope this has inspired you to create some projects of your own. Cheers to the New Year!

"Owl" make your Autumn decorating complete at SoBo Style.

 "Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot

 Look at those eyes!

We call these our "Salvaged Owls" constructed of found parts and pieces.

The finishing touch to your Autumn decor!

Fall Favorite

Autumn is no doubt our favorite time to decorate! We always have fun arranging our birch bark vases with dried flowers and leaves but ultimately the highlight are our velvet pumpkins.  They are honestly our favorite Fall decor item at SoBo Style.  The rich iridescent colors combined with the naturally dried pumpkin stems is over-the-top stunning!  With the Fall feeling in the air, the velvet pumpkins will definitly get you in the mood for the season between summer and winter.

Mother's Day Creations

At SoBo we like any excuse to create something unique and fresh out of a vintage item. Giving a vintage object new life is our specialty. Our wonderful friends at Rhubarb Reign worked for weeks, (maybe even months) on creations for Mother's Day.

 Photo holders made out of vintage lamp parts could hold a your Mom's favorite picture or the card you send her for Mother's Day.
Moms might recognize these bottles from when milk was still delivered to your door, now they have been re-imagined into vases. If you look close you will see the petals of these flowers are made from vintage reflectors once used to adorn your Christmas tree.

 Whether you Mom is famous for her entrees or desserts her recipe will look right at home in these whisk photo holders.

 Another kitchen utensil is given new life in this last project, an egg separator would fit perfectly on a kitchen windowsill or counter.

We always strive to have one of a kind treasures at SoBo Style and hope that's something you and your Mom will appreciate on her special day.  Happy Mother's Day!

Organic Cotton Totes

We are thrilled with our new organic cotton totes and coin purses!  I have personally been carrying the bird print tote the past couple of weeks and love it.  Proudly made in the bay area, the bright graphic prints are inspired by San Francisco's natural beauty.  The classic bicycle design fits right in with our Clintonville crowd.
