I swear,Vix and I are from the same mould........
This is our collection of vintage glass bottles.I had always thought they were a real 70's thing,but apparently they are ealier than that.I haven't done a lot of research,but G and I have found out that they are actually a 50's/60's thing.
We have picked these up at various places all over the South Island.I think one little one we found in Auckland.Prices have varied between $2 up to $65-I think the big blue one was the most expensive.One was a gift from G's mum.They are such a colourful delight,and fit really well on the lounge windowsill.There is not much room for many more,but then,we've only seen 1 in recent times,and it was $95!!!Piss off,spotty!!!
The bugger is that cleaning them is a painfully slow business-luckily G is the housework bitch around here and is up to the task!!!
* I am currently watching "Goodbye,Mr Chips",the 1969 version with Peter O'Toole and Petula Clarke.I'm not really enjoying it.What I did enjoy was Boris trying to get on my lap a few minutes ago-I am snuggled on the couch with a big purple blanket-and he didn't quite make it.When I laughed,he gave me such a look!!!
