Genie in a Bottle
The fact these bottles have been buried and survived all these years under heaps of mud and rubbish, makes me even more determined to rehome them in a way in which they can be admired.
At first I thought I was lucky finding one, but it soon became apparent this was going to turn into a treasure hunt, as the excitement of finding more kicked in. One by one, my pile started accumulating and it made me really appreciate the random nature of this collection. For these bottles had never really belonged to anyone, discarded and left for rubbish, waiting a lifetime to be found.
The allure of green bottles just reminds me of the childhood nursery rhyme Ten Green Bottles. Though my favourite has to be this Sunkap orange drink bottle, I've never quite seen anything like it. I love the cutesy illustration and can’t wait to put it on display in my craft room.
Who ever knew a collection of glass bottles could get me so inspired and craving more.
