A Good Case



I picked up these vintage cosmetic cases back in the early 90's at various yard sales....



I love that these first two are monogrammed with their previous owner's initials...



This one has these beautiful glass jars in the top level....It doesn't look as if they were ever used!





The bottom layer was for lingerie perhaps? It is still in near perfect condition...



The colors fit well in the Adirondacks and they usually sit stacked on the floor in a guest room...



...just in case...

They are three little treasures you've got there. I have a really old case belonging to my grand mother. I will be doing something with it soon and show it on my blog. XXXX

I love your cases. Especially the burgundy one. We found some of the old beat up ones at our local antique dealer today but they smelled awfully bad. They stayed there. :)

Such great finds! They are usually smelly & beat up by the time I find them. I always liked the shapes of them but that burgundy one is to die for!

I would love to have that one with all the bottles........I recently made lilac perfume out of my lilacs..........and couldn't find anything like that! you are so lucky to have such a collection of things, but most of all, appreciate them........

hope you had a blessed weekend......

Great cases!! I had quite a few but in downsizing last year I parted with them & now regret it daily.
If you ever go nuts & are willing to part with the red one, email me!!! All the lovelies inside make it even more wonsdeful!!!

Looking forward to seeing pictures of your weekend!!!
