tiny little bottles!

I found these little guys a long time ago in a market in Moscow.  I can remember the guy that was selling them.  He had a wooden trunk lined with small wooden shelves and on the shelves stood hundreds of tiny glass bottles.  I loved all of them!

If I had, had room in my luggage, I would have bought more.  He told me they were antiques.  Showed me special markings.  He raised the prices.  We haggled.  He wanted to impress me.  He didn’t know I was already in love.

It’s been 10 years.  They are travelers. They have lived in at least 8 different homes.  They always stick together.  They are transparent and fragile, but have never broken.  They stand as a reminder to me.
