A stroke of luck brought me and these Victorian ink bottles together. I am taken by their luminous sea-like hues, roughly made appearance and even the jagged lips that top a few of them. I say a few of them, because I have in fact landed about 10 of the diddy little delights.
I think they make darling little ornaments and pretty little vessels for the little weeds that I seem to bring back from our walks. They look just as charming unadorned.
You know that they say about one person’s treasure being another person’s junk? Well that is probably the case with these bottles! I think they are far to precious to chuck away and they can be re-purposed in a variety of ways. In case anyone else agrees, I will add some to my little shop when I re-open it (hopefully) towards the end of the month.
