You know you've looked too long at an object when you start calling it she. This one is the only one I did of three bottles and it was fun to do.
|Chanel and her Backup|
I thought of painting the iconic Chanel #5 bottle for the challenge. I don't know why, I don't even wear perfume. I asked around for a couple of months and no one had one, they used to have one, their mother used to have one but no one remembered what happened to the bottles. I just didn't ask the right people. I asked evil teacher Suzy and her mother had one but without a label. Still better than nothing. My sister in law asked on facebook and got a small one and she even drove it in from Ottawa. My husband's aunt had a tiny bottle. Then I hit paydirt with the church ladies. One gave me a small one and a box that was never opened. It had the original wrapping that had yellowed. I just couldn't open something that was sealed for so long. Gerry finally broke the seal and opened it. I am not quite sure if he did because he is nice or he got tired of my whining. Six of one, 1/2 a dozen of another.

Funny none of them want the bottles back and I don't have the heart to throw them out.
And I don't even wear perfume.
