Thrifted Treasures

Feast your eyes on the treasures....

The loot I scored, pictured as promised!
My mom finds the best presents!

Here's a closer look...
The compact opens up twice!

The top opens & there is ancient blush & a mirror. Where that little puff is, it opens again, probably for powder {squeals!}

Check out the detail on this....
Any idea what it is??
I didn't have a clue!
But you open it up.....
It's a personal ashtray!
#swoonyantiquesmakemewanttostartsmokingagain!

& these are glove holders!

G L O V E
H O L D E R S...
because you wouldn't want to just shove them in your pocket, they must dangle delicately off the side of your purse by a precious chain! {swoon}

I was born in the wrong era!

Let's all bring back gloves & hats & delicate ashtrays ;)

Hope you birds are having a lovely weekend!

*hugs*

*giggle* Glove holders, eh? That's pretty cute. Are you going to transform the compact into something creative, or just keep it to look at?

LINDSAY said...

Sweet loot! I love the compact. Things were made so pretty back then.
