"You know, these beauties won't be here much longer."

Yesterday would have been my father's birthday.  He passed away many years ago but I think of him
everyday.  A quiet man, Daddy often made spontaneous, profound observations.  Like me, he held on
to just about everything and appreciated the simple, the common.

One Sunday afternoon we were browsing at a flea market.  He stopped at a vendor's table, picked
up an old apothecary bottle and said, "You know, these beauties won't be here much longer."  At
the time I really didn't pay much attention to the little antique bottle.  But looking back, Daddy was
right - these beauties won't be here much longer.

While they're still available at flea markets and antique shops,
consider investing in vintage glass bottles.  

You know, these beauties won't be here much longer.

  3. We have a few of these because my husband used to dig them up when he was a little boy. I think the field where he found them must have been a dumping spot at one point, because he got quite a collection. I like the ones in this post containing the old photographs, that is a really fun idea. So many ways to use them and display them.

  4. Sarajean! I love old bottles, bird houses and other good things. I'm pretty sure we have a lot in common. Looking forward to seeing more from you! Glad we're connected. Your bio made me laugh out loud. :)
