Pop Bottle Candies



When I was a little girl I remember getting these wax pop bottle candies...only I remember that they were held in a tiny cardboard pop container like the large bottles of pop. I used to love to drink the sugar water and then chew the wax. When I saw these in the grocery store all of those memories of hot, dusty, Wyoming summer days flooded my mind. It was oh so simple then and so pleasurable.

Voting day here in SC....I was so excited to cast my ballot!!

Oh my gosh I haven't seen those little wax bottles in at least 100 years. Great job ... thanks for the memories.

Love this painting. So clever to have picked these little wax bottles with their soft colors. Like your composition, colors and brushstrokes!
