It's another Blue Monday, hosted by Smiling Sally! On this day people post pictures of blue items they own or have seen. It's a fun way to look at the world when you're out and about, noticing things that are that certain color, in this case blue. This week I am showing some vintage blue medicine containers that I own.
About six months ago I shared my collection of apothecary bottles and medicine containers that I have on display in my powder room. There were some things that I didn't share at the time. One is this cute little cobalt blue bottle. It is one of the few vintage things I have that I bought myself. It just caught my eye in a junk shop many years ago. I keep it with the apothecary bottles because it adds some color, but I don't know the use for which it was originally intended. It has a small chip on the lip and one on the bottom.I don't remember dental powder myself, but my parents do! This tin still has some in it. We found it under the sink in an old family home when we had to clean it out. I was in high school at the time, but I knew it was something cool and I grabbed it up! Epsom Salts! So many uses, and we still have it in the house today!Cleaning out my desk at work recently, I came across this Sucrets lozenge tin. I had been looking for it for a long time. I kept tacks in it at work.Now I just have to find my BandAid tin with the flip up lid. It's either somewhere at work, or someone stole it.I hope you enjoyed this little blue walk down memory lane!
