Vintage Bottle Love

It's been slow around here this week...slow and a little frustrating.  I've been nursing a sore back all week and I'm happy to report that I'm at about 75% capacity now.  Thank you all so much for your support and get well wishes.  I've been working on some jewelry and a few other "back friendly" projects, so hopefully I'll be ready for Mes Amis Antique Show on the 21st.

I forced myself to avoid the yard sales this past weekend and surprisingly enough, I really didn't suffer any major withdrawal symptoms.  Well, maybe just a minor symptom or two.   With so much stuff waiting to be cleaned up, fixed up, and priced, I decided to focus on what I already have....like these pretty bottles I found at a church rummage sale a few weeks ago.

I picked through dozens of bottles and bought all the ones with raised lettering.  

Most of these pretties will be staying right here with me.

I love them just the way they are, so I won't be doing anything fancy with them.
Just a single bud here and there.

I brought home two of these Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root bottles.  
Good for what ails your kidneys, liver, and bladder....oh my!

A gathering of the locals:  San Francisco, Brisbane, and San Jose.
They were a mess when I found them, so I filled each bottle with warm water and dropped in an Efferdent tablet.  I've tried several methods for cleaning the gunk out of old bottles, and this one always works best for me.
