Perfume Bottles

Joe and I have been shopping at thrift stores today.
This morning we priced and boxed items we are selling at three consignment stores near our old house.
Here are some perfume bottles I especially like.

This one is lead crystal and to the right of it is a vintage apothecary jar I found at the estate sale on Saturday.

The perfume bottle on the left was made in Czechoslovakia.

Sometimes when we are out thrifting a theme emerges and today was one of those days because at Habitat for Humanity ReStore we found perfume bottle stoppers.

They are adorable and if I am not mistaken I have two little perfume bottles sans stoppers at one of the consignment stores I sell at.

The wood tissue boxes in the background are from Italy.
The strange aspect about me liking perfume bottles is I detest perfume as it gives me a headache but the quality and beauty in these bottles is hard to deny.
I want to keep them all.
Can you blame me?
