More Vintage Compacts for VTT!
Welcome to VTT, where we drag out our vintage things, dust them off (well, some of us do), and share them with the world! Suzanne is our hostess over at Coloradolady, so please stop by her blog and check out everyone's vintage treasures.
Last September I shared some of my vintage compact collection here. Today I'd like to share a few more. I had wanted to show them all in the shadowbox where I keep them, but I realized that the velvet inside the shadowbox was very dusty and had deteriorated alot. So please bear with me as I share alot of pictures. First up is this rather large pink and red one with the pretty cameo in the center. I'll just let the pictures do the talking for most of them, instead of blathering on about them!
This one opens up to reveal.....
a little comb and tube of lipstick too!
This ballerina is one of my favorites, with her little jewelled tutu!
These two things were also displayed in the shadowbox with the compacts. Sorry about the glare! On the right is an oh-so-elegant cigarette holder, and the deer pin on the left, which my Dad gave me when I was a little girl. It's one of my most prized possessions. Want to see more vintage things? If so, head on over to Suzanne's right now!
