Way Late Wretched Wednesday - Appalling Apothecary

The Macabre Monday challenge here at HDH is
Appalling Apothecary.  

I have been compiling my own Apothecary collection on
my mantle for about a year or so now.
I have some antique books, some specimen bugs, candles,
and creepy bits and bobs.
I have taken pictures of my mantle before, so I wanted to
show you something totally new.

I got this awesome little cabinet for my birthday.
My friends are finally catching on as to how easy I am to shop for.
Thrift store finds are my favorites!!! 

I took all nine of my Tim Holtz bottles and
transformed them into various tinctures, poisons,
and remedies.

I printed out a bunch of poison labels I had been
saving for just such a project. I glued them on the bottles
and placed them on the shelves in an attractive manner. 

I also added some of my miniature sculptures from my personal 
collection to fill in the blank spots.
If you are interested in some mini gourds of your own,
please check out my Etsy shop.

Uh oh! Someone left the lid off the Zombie Virus!!!

I had a blast making these little bottles and may be heading to 
Mike's tomorrow to pick up some more with my 40% off coupon!

There is still plenty of time left to get in on the action for this
week's challenge.
