Day 28 Chanel and her Backup

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.

All my Chanel bottles

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.
