Imagine ....

Imagine ...

If drugs are still stored in Jars like this, I will have a very interesting (perhaps deliciously) looking medicine cabinet!



And this, my friend is very useful for ex-boss with migraines! Muahahahahhahaha

Very interesting! I imagine there were lots of pretty cool things at the Museum!

I can imagine a lot of healing herbs and salves (many of which our pharmaceuticals are based on) stored in jars like that, in days of yore. Presumably by the women of the house, who would have tended the herb garden (I imagine) and been the healers.

Have fun; I'm looking forward to seeing more travel photos!

That is a really pretty cabinet.

That would be great if we had such pretty bottles for our medicines. Those are so nice.
Hope you have a nice weekend.

That really is a pretty cabinet, I could reach through there and whap a few things over!

Oooh they make the medicine stuff look so pretty in those lovely jars! :-) If only all medicinal cabinets could look as stylish and gorgeous as this!! :-)

I could think of a few people I could give that fever powder too!! LOL!!!!

These are brilliant- thank you for sharing! Me and Charlie hope you are having a peaceful time in Oxford! Hello to your sweet nephew and sister!.

Take care

Hope you are enjoying your time with your new nephew and family. I could use several packets of "fever powder" - in our new currency it works out at 12 pence
per packet which would be a very cheap way to dispose of the ones who pee you off!!
Love to you and Lucky

Hmmm...we may be putting together a list of victi...erm, people for that powder. We see we're not the only ones! What a bloodthirsty lot we are. Well, poison IS the weapon of choice for women...

What a neat museum...hope you are enjoying your trip to the fullest!

By the way, Mr. Pinky of Oxford is so cute!
