Here are some good things I found at Joy's Shop the Shed event. This large pharmacy bottle. I call it a pharmacy bottle because when I was young, there was an old pharmacy at the end of our block. It had a soda fountain, and a phone booth! You got your prescriptions from the back where the pharmacist (Mr. Urbanski) was behind a iron cage, like the banks used to have. There was a display of bottles, just like this one, with old looking labels and strange sounding names. We used to visit for violets, charm lolly pops and necco wafers. It was the place my Dad walked all his grand kids. This bottle, along with being very cool, stirred up some memories, and it had to come home with me. I also got this little gate...I've been collecting some items for a tiny garden, and this was chippy and worn and right up my alley.
This is the galvanized soap dish, a gift from Joy. It belonged to our dear friend Annie. Annie was a dear sweet soul that stole my heart at our first blogger's event. Joy who was a dear friend to Annie is so generous to share her memories with me. Annie and I didn't have the gift of time to get to know each other, but we knew each others hearts. I have a few things that remind me of her, and this little piece is the kind of thing she loved. Annie's blog Drawing a Blank still up . I haven't visited in a while. I used to visit everyday when she was ill. Hoping she'd post, hoping she was better... Oh Annie, I miss you pal....... Thank you so much Joy, for everything!
Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.
