went to my mom's friend's 70th and caught a peeper by the pond!
the woman whose house it was had this cabinet full of tiny jugs and pots and she told me about them. her (grand?)mother started collecting them in 1908, her friends would travel on steamboats for months at a time and bring them back to her and she collected them for years and years. they filled up two shelves in the glass china cabinet. they all had little numbers on the bottom that corresponded to a notebook that tells you where they're from and who they're from and the date she got them, but unfortunately someone was cleaning the pots and put them in warm water and most of the labels came off. they spent ages trying to rematch them but some of them don't have numbers anymore.
