The Girly Stuff

More of the loot I found last week...

Rusty, filthy and fabulous vintage bread box and set of glasses destined to hold chocolate milkshakes. Whipped cream and Maraschino cherries, no extra charge!

2 Frenchy girls in round frames (I can never pass these up), miniature perfume bottles, a cigar box and a lantern. But it's not just a lantern, of course. It's a bottle and a music box. The tune it plays is "How Dry I Am". Not kidding.

And the pretty girl on the cigar box loves her smokes so much that she's engraving their initials onto an unsuspecting tree. I smoked a cigar once when I was 19, accompanied by a Bloody Mary and my boyfriend at the time, whose surname was Divine. Not kidding. Perhaps that's a story for another day.

I heart that bread box, it is the star of the show in these pics! I'll take you up on one of those milkshakes, think it will survive in the mail? :-)

Hey girl--love your picks! I'm lovin' the breadbox too. But the cigar box gets points for pure funkiness! Can't wait to hit the junkin' trail with you in TX!

Peace, love, and keep on finding GREAT junk!
