Ahhhh, sweet success at last!!!!!

So here are some last, of my new bottle collection. They were all purchased at the same yard sale from the nicest man named Willie.....I had 4 bottles in my hands originally, got too hot and irritable, so couldn't decide what to buy. Please tell me you've done that before....., well, bet you haven't now that I think about it!  Willie saw me put them back and said, "I'd love to give you a bottle, choose anyone you like." Huh? Really, how sweet is that? I said, "Oh, you don't have to do that" and his response was, "But I want to, I'm a firm believer that you get what you give in this life."
Well, needless to say I scrambled and found several that I liked, then went back a few hours later for more! He gave me a great deal on them so who could resist? Not me!

I like the old tobacco tins to use for altered art, and the old folding ruler, well, it's beat up just enough...I'm off to bed, I've been futzing with my blog for 1 1/2 hours now trying to change the background....ran into some issues....(shocking I know)!

Great finds what a sweetie of a gentleman to give you a bottle.
So glad you made it through your blogging frustrations to get your pics up.
Well worth the wait.
Have good nights sleep

Good karma. That's what I call it. He extended kindness and you wanted to extend yours. It's always good to give good karma. Love the collection!
