Vintage Bottles

Hello friends!  I have a thing for little bottles and it started at a very young age.  My Dad was a heavy equipment operator and often used a crane to dig and demolish large buildings.  He would bring home the cutest little bottles that had been unearthed after many years of being buried.  Mom would add them to her growing collection and once I was old enough, she shared some of them with me.  I still look for little bottles when I’m shopping at boutiques, thrift stores and antique shops.  These little bottles came from an Antique Shop and when I saw the new Clear Art Mini Frames  Stamp by Crafty Secrets, I knew they would be perfect!  The blue bottle still had some Tincture of Benzoin in it…being the snoop that I am, I twisted off the lid and gave a hearty sniff…and WOW…the smell about knocked me out!  LOL!  Check out the Heartwarming Vintage Blog for some more vintage goodness!

Your little bottles are precious. I have been saving some bottles and this would be perfect for them. I have a couple from the excavation just done for the new flume and they are old and rusty lidded and I love them. Now I have no excuse to just let them sit. Thank you Jan for the inspiration...
