>Bottle Hunting!

Someone said the other day that the reason they liked my blog was that they could always ensure they would see me doing something they wouldn’t expect, that it was diverse and positively unpredictable – well thank you that friend! Here’s to you – something unpredictable: Bottle Hunting. Yes this is really what I did on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the woods… What better than a casual stroll and bit of a dig to come home with some beautiful discoveries. It’s a weird thing that they’re just there, dumped by someone years ago and now clutched by tree roots, some not dislogable. I’m quite curious to know who threw them there and why in that patch, just in the middle of the woods. For now I am happy to just collect the most pretty ones and hope no one tells me off. I did in fact go with the hope of finding the ‘perfect’ bottle – one that I could use for a current perfume designing project, but I will save that explanation for another day.

P.s This outfit was not considered for the woods! Doesn’t really go but hey ho 🙂

    >OMG I SERIOUSLY did the very same thing on Sunday! There used to be a bottle bank in the woods about 40 years ago so I found some awesome ones and spent the rest of the day scrubbing them clean! I found one that said 'poison' really big across the bottle but it was broken 🙁
    You've found some really good ones, I like the blueey jar best 🙂
