French Bleu ~ Favorite Things



Vintage Pretties

My new favorite color is French Blue!
It's so soft and subtle.  I've been adding small touches here and there throughout my home.  It compliments the pinks and whites and adds a pop of color.
I love vintage perfume bottles.  I've been collecting for years.  I've never seen one quite like this one.
I was initially drawn to it because of the color and love that it's hand painted.  When I lifted the dauber and it still smelled....  I knew I had to have it.  I love that it has retained it's original scent.  To me.....  that's what makes it "special".
I always wonder about the original owner.  I imagine a lovely lady sitting at her dressing table...  combing her hair, pinching her cheeks and adding a bit of perfume behind each ear.  Like in an old black and white movie.
So beautiful.  So feminine.
Even though I've said......   "no more"........  "not one more"....    
I just couldn't resist!

Have a wonderful weekend!
