"shabby chic" for Gothic arches



This is my entry for this weeks challenge at Gothic arches. Hope you like my chic lady!
The background is a wine label from a great austalian wine - the ONLY label I was able to get off without ruining it. I think that the guy that puts labels on wine bottles should think more carefully about the glue he uses - I want to recycle them!

  2. Wonderful arch Lena!
    I'm with you on removing labels, the old fashioned "glue" was a dream! The newer adhesive stuff is dreadful. We have found it helpful to fill the bottles with very warm water and soak for a long long time in warm water also ... a tiny bit easier to get those rascals off!

  10. I agree about the wine labels. Don't they know that we want to reuse them when they stick them on? Brilliant idea to use one in your background. The end result is oh so chic.
