someone left behind a big box of old bottles so I grabbed it. After looking through them, I kept the ones I wanted for my collection and these are all the ones I don't want. I just can't believe someone left them all!

Not sure if I should try selling them on Craig's List or something.  .  .

Currently, I'm really into purple glass, it's cool. If you'll check out Sue and Ki's first book, "Decorating Junkmarket Style", you'll find several uses for old bottles.

Thanks,
