Green Demi-Johns

Green Glass Demi-Johns

These demi-johns were originally used for storing wine and they were in the cellar of our current house when we moved in. I love them which is why I have them on display like this in our home. I thought they were a perfect choice for joining in with the Green Day meme.

  9. We spent two weeks in a home outside of Cortona, Italy and they had these jars strategically placed in the gardens. The beautiful green glass reflected the sunshine so brilliantly.

  17. Love the green in these charming bottles. When we were in Italy several years ago, we stayed in a villa that had its own wine cellar that we had access to and their bottles were very similar!

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
