My friend Diana let me come over and "play" with her perfume bottles. As an antique dealer, she specializes in colored glass and has a particular love for perfume bottles. She has over 250 in her collection!
We had fun creating a vintage Valentine vignette with her red perfume bottles. The ones above are Czechoslovakian.
A close up of the pair. Notice the red tray they sit on. Wouldn't they make a wonderful Valentine gift?
If I were a handsome prince, I would give my love a perfume bottle! Hint hint....
Oh my, I love this one! This etched glass bottle is Bohemian.
I love these two Art Deco bottles from the 20's.
Besides perfume bottles, Diana has a collection of vintage Valentine cards. I particularly like this one!
A little trio. The one in the middle made my heart skip a beat!
Here is a little art glass bottle with a gold stopper.
Diana has many bottles with the floral spray on top like this one. It is Venetian Glass.
A peek at Diana's collection. This is only one shelf! I plan to feature more in the future of her extensive collection of colored glass, perfume bottles and vintage costume jewelry.
Another precious vintage Valentine card.
And finally, a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to you!
Thank you Diana for letting me play with your wonderful collections!
I'm joining Laurie's Valentine Party at Bargain Hunting With Laurie. It should be quite a "love fest" so come by and have a look at all the participants.
I'm also joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. I have a feeling there will be lots of Valentine Show and Tell, so check it out.
What a wonderful collection! Happy Valentines Day to you too!

Oh MY Gosh! Two beautiful posts! Your friend has a gorgeous collection! Those perfume bottles are exquisite, and several of them had me coveting-especially that Boehmian bottle.

Hi , it's me again, I forgot to say Yes, I made the little heart. One year I made a whole bunch of them and gave them out as Valentines. I gave the purple one to my Mom. When she died 3 years ago I brought it home with me, it hangs in my dressing room and reminds me of her!
The flower cart was at the county fair, pretty neat I thought!
OMG I have never seen such beautiful perfume
bottles you have quite a great collection there.
Love those vintage valentine day cards too.
Have a Happy Valentines Day!
