And A Beautiful Swan Graced My Presence..........

I wasn't going to stop.  I had told myself no.....just keep going.  It's been a long day.  No pit stopping at the thrift shop in hopes there was yet more milk glass there.  But I did stop in.  Just for a minute.  Just for a quick peek.  I had looked at all the shelves.  Touched a few things.  Managed to make my way to the very last shelf before I was heading out the door and there she was.....the beautiful swan with a beautiful brass coloured (and in perfect condition) crown.  I shook the bottle and there is still liquid in it.  Not sure if it's perfume or just water.....I have a few other pieces of Avon glass with liquid in it and I haven't been brave enough to smell inside to see if it is indeed parfume or not.  And if it is perfume....is it rank and just awful??  None the less it is still milk glass and another awesome addition to the ever growing collection.  Now I shouldn't stop at my other regular thrift shops tomorrow however I think I probably will!


  1. I think I would open it up and smell. Perfume usually stays good for a very long time.

  2. I just bought the Rooster form Avon last Sunday. Thank you for dropping by, nice to hear from you again. Have a nice summer!
