Evening in Paris



This photo shows the newest additions to my collection of vintage perfume bottles . . . these bottles arrived in the mail yesterday . . . I first started collecting this particular style back in the 1980s . . . when I was doing a lot of counted cross-stitch, tatting, teaching classes at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, et al . . . these were attached as needle-holders to the fabric chatelaines I designed . . .

  1. Your vintage perfume bottles are beautiful, Vickie. I love the cobalt blue color...and perfect to use as a needle-holder.

  2. Try the website http://www.glassartiste.com/glassartiste/Home.html or http://www.youtube.com/user/glassartiste where my friend Carlos uses perfume bottles for art installations. He also makes stained glass windows on the side. Its a great website, and the videos are cool...

  3. I have ONE bottle in my collection . . . shaped like these . . . that is actually clear . . . I don't have a clue what flavor of perfume came in it . . . the others are all Evening-in-Paris blue . . .

    I am liking your friend's website, Heather . . . my Mom has created some really nice stained glass pieces during her lifetime, and I'm sure she will enjoy that site also . . . thanks for sharing . . .
