My mom and I spent the afternoon together ~ eating at our favorite cafe, shopping our favorite antique shoppes...... this is what I bought. I have been keeping my eye out for these. They are reproductions ~~ from 1976 and 1977, so not actually vintage, but pretty just the same. I have a small collection of vintage talcs in my bathroom that I will share in a future post.
~Thanks for visiting~

I was lucky enough to win a blog giveaway from Sweet Eye Candy that included this aqua tin! I really wanted one for my bathroom - it has the box, too! And, of course I live in the state. :)

I love those California Tins and perfume bottles. I have been thinking of collecting them for some time now. I am soooo glad to see you found some for your own. Also, I noticed you LOVE Mitford books, too. Oh - I just love Father Tim!

Becca, I love your reproductions of talc and the box too. They are so pretty, and since you are keeping them for yourself they are perfect to add to your collection. Can't wait to see the rest of your collection.

I've always been drawn to these vintage containers. The designs are so yummy. Whoever created these design patterns knew what they were doing!

They might be retro mid-'70s but they look like they're channeling turn of the century! Gorgeous!

Lallee said...

Oh Becca, I love these! Especially the blue one. Are they reproductions of 70's versions, or are the 70's versions reproductions? Does my question make any sense at all? LOL I'd love to see them displayed.

Hugs,
Lallee
