Today is my, and many others, favorite day of the week, Vintage Thingies Thursday, hosted by Suzanne at ColoradoLady. She always has something great to share, this week it's some beautifully embroidered linens, and each week I learn something from one or more of the participants. If you have any vintage thingies hanging around, join us some time.
I titled this post OO, LA! LA! because I am showing off something I thing is very fancy, and I am NOT a fancy person, as I hope you know.This beautiful perfume atomizer was found in the attic of my great-aunt's home when we were cleaning it out in 1984. It was in a very nice, sturdy, golden cardboard box that was lined with red velvet. We're pretty sure it was never used. The bulb is dried up, but you really can't tell just by looking at it. Currently it is on display in my sister's dining room curio cabinet. Don't you just love the detail work and the texturing of the gilding? Wouldn't feel oh so elegant having this on your dressing table and spritzing yourself before a romantic night out? Ah, those were the days!
