Sunday Stills "Glass"

These three bottles are some of my ranch "junk pile treasures" from my grandparents' place. The brown bottle has raised lettering on it that says by "Federal law not to be resold or refilled" and "half pint." A medicine bottle maybe? There is not much left of the label on one side so that gives no clue as to what it held. The small square bottle is an ink bottle I have been told. The taller clear bottle has a small hole in the top, similar to a salad dressing bottle or vinegar shaker.


 


The full canning jars contain my mother-in-law's pickled beets and dilly beans. The empty ones are ones that I need to return to her!

I wanted to do before and after shots of my canning jars, but didn't get around to doing any canning yet. I like the last photo.
