Knock Offs

I've been seeing the gorgeous milk bottles from Three Potato Four all over the blogosphere lately. Can you say "covet"? They are so lovely, I can barely contain myself.

Unfortunately, as I have been mentioning in every single post, I am on a shoestring budget right now. And if Rob found out I bought a few $32 milk bottles, he'd most likely freak.

So, what's a girl to do? Check ebay, of course! While I would love to support a shop as wonderful as Three Potato Four, my wallet won't allow it right now. But I was able to find this collection of old bottles on ebay for $25 (including shipping), so I had to snatch them up.

And I also nabbed this lot of ten half-pint bottles for $16 (including shipping.) What a bargain! I can imagine them filled with buttons and ribbons.

True, they aren't as pretty, and they might be chipped or cloudy, but hopefully I can make them work!
