I'm Sensing a Theme ~

I am joining Debra @ Common Ground this week for Vintage Inspiration Friday. Just the right way to jump back into blogging after a solid month off. Link @ sidebar.

if you look really closely, there is a bullet hole in the second from the left
I have always loved collecting vintage bottles or vintage glass vessels of any sort really. Lately I have been picking up some doozies at the local flea market. These authentic apothecary bottles are made by the TC Wheaton  Company (circa 1800's) and are the cream of the crop as far as apothecary bottles go.  I just lov e these , and they make for some wonderful vintage vignettes. These are some of my favorites ~ most of them have sold the minute they hit the shop ~ but at least I still have the photos. Occupational hazard.....

Still has original label 
Circa 1800 flask
Never one to be shy of a little self promotion ~ French Bleu Vintage is having a Free Gift with $30.00 purchase promotion while supplies last. The gift is a super nice "Fabulously French" extra large vinyl shopping bag. Check out the shops link @ sidebar.

Have a great weekend everyone ~ Dee XO


  1. I LOVE those bottles, Even the one with the bullet hole(that would be a great conversation piece)!!!
    Happy New Year to you,
    Hugs, Donna

  2. Dee
    you really should think about sharing some of those gorgeous bottles with your gf's in Cali well {me} of course. Such a pretty display.
    Have a wonderful weekend


  3. These are wonderful, oh how I'd love to find a few of these! The glass is just incredible! It would be so hard to let go of these! Thanks for linking up!
    Have a great weekend,

  4. Great promo! Love the bag... and apothecary jars never seem to go out of style.

  5. Those are awesome bottles Dee. Love the flask too. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Just what every fabulous girl needs...a fabulous vintage flask!!

    Have a great weekend Dee!!

  7. Hi Dee, I also adore the old bottles, especially apothecary ones. Yours are wonderful! I am so glad you left me a comment so I was able to find you. I have been browsing your archives...I love your style!
    Now following.

  8. Thanks for becoming a new follower of my humble Blog and leaving a comment. Imagine my surprise when I stop in to leave a response and find that we both have done a Post today of the EXACT SAME THING... Vintage Bottles!!! Ahhhh, two great minds think alike they say, right? *wink* LOVE your vintage Bottle collection... the distinction of old glass has always appealed to me so The Man always brings Home lovely old Bottles from his treks in the Desert that have waited all these years for discovery and appreciation. I rarely can pass up a fab old Bottle for sale either and my newest passion are those Artistic Bottle Stoppers that so many Artists are creating... I MUST learn to do that to jazz up my collection.
