I wandered up to the antique store the other day.
I was searching for something unusual.
I found it.
An old post office box with keys attached.
I opened the box and inside was something glowing.
It appeared to be a bottle!
It was a bottle alright.
With all kinds of tiny charms hanging on it.
One resembled a pumpkin.
It was a tiny orange bead
with what looked to be a beaded twisted vine.
The top had been soldered closed and tied up
with old waxed cord of some kind.
There was a tiny clock charm and,
a tiny leaf charm.
I hung it from an old wine bottle
to get a better look.
The label had writing on it.
In tiny print under the number was hand written
I moved it over on a doily where the light was better.
Looking closely I could see glass shards inside the bottle!
Do you suppose?
Could it be true?
What do you think?
Could it be the last remaining bits of
It's for sale in my Etsy shop, now.
