Some new treasures…

I had a few minutes to spare yesterday in town so I ducked into ‘Willow’ and found these neat jars…

I might have to go back and buy a couple more, here’s a close-up…

Old style milk bottles with the words Dairy Milk by Heritage Company since 1810 and on the back please wash and return to Heritage Co.

And these gorgeous green ones have 1868 Honey written on them.

And just for fun, have you seen this book…

It is amazing! We got it out of the library the other day but it would make a great coffee table book, this is one of my favourites…

And yes it is made entirely out of food! The water is made from a sea of salmon, the trees I think are carrot tops the rocks are potatoes! Amazing huh! If you want to see more go here.

Only two more sleeps until Claire, Michelle and I go on our Great Op Shop Hop!

I love old milk jars. I remember when the milkman came to our house and lefy milk in a galvinized insulated box! Of course there were 7 kids so we got our in glass gallon bottles.
I've never seen a milk jar shaped like the green one-it's a real find.
What a cute book-so much fun!
