Behind all of my husband's various tools and odds and ends, were 4 very....very old glass bottles sitting side by side on a ceramic tray. I have NEVER seen them on my many trips to the basement in the past 7 years of living here. I can only assume, by the amount of dust and dirt on them, that they had been there long before we moved in and then became buried by our belongings. I was so excited that I didn't need to go far to find something I've been searching for....
So...to expand on one of Ashley's previous posts, to find simple treasures you can ALSO look to what you already own, and perhaps have forgotten about....or look around in spaces such as the basement or attic for items that may have been left behind by previous owners.
P.S. When I figure out where exactly I'm going to put them...and what I will use them for, I'll post an updated picture! In the meantime, I just HAD to share. stay tuned.
