The story of the bottles…..

Many years ago while at an auction we used to visit weekly I spotted a box of old bottles. Most of the bottles were nothing special but these three were tucked in with the rest. The minute I saw them I knew I just had to have them! Once the bidding started I noticed it was just me and another woman bidding……..In the end I won the box of bottles. A while later the lady approached me and asked what I planned to do with so many bottles. I explained that I collected old bottles and thought they would make a nice addition to my collection. As it turns out she wasn’t really interested in the bottles after all. What she really wanted was the old stopper to a decanter that was in the bottom of the box so I gave it to her……...and then there were two very happy women!

Have a great weekend!!!!
