|This is a sugar bowl. I love that it has magnolias on it.|
I love the brand Tocca for perfume and lotion. The actual jar shown here is how the sell their lotion... I love it, it's so creamy and light that a little goes really far and the smells are just decadent. Also, I get a lovely glass jar- that I can fill with whatever I want when I'm done with the lotion. Also, the round box next to the glass jar is the box it came in... which I filled with my Lush foot powder (so my feet don't sweat in my stocking.) I simply bought a cheap drugstore powder puff for about $3.50 and voila!
I did a similar thing with my regular body powder using a sugar bowl I thrifted from a local junk shop. Sorry, I'm not one for vintage plastic- I think they look a little cheap for me... too dimestore. I like the luxury of glass and the vintage one's online were exorbitantly priced and mostly plastic, the shapes reminded so much of a sugar bowl that I just went to my local thrift shop and snapped one up for about $2.50. Cleaned it up really well, dumped the the powder inside and bought a drugstore powder puff.
A few years ago I found a lovely bathroom vanity set on clearance at Anthropologie. A three piece set of a water cup "Eau" and soap dish and a covered jar shown to the left in unglazed white porcelain. They are in an elegant Art Nouveau style. Very '20's and 30's.
I keep cotton balls in the "Beaute" jar, my jewelry on the soap dish (as if I'd put soap on it! HA!) and my makeup brushes in the water cup "Eau." This on my vanity paired with my Tocca perfume bottle hearkens back on day long past of luxury and style. It certainly beats plastic containers, plastic bottles, and plastic pump top items with ugly pictures of legs and such on them.
