Vintage Thingies Thursday - Cobalt Glass

**Scroll down for Sincerely 'Fro Me to You!!


I love, love, love cobalt glass. So imagine my delight when I came across these goodies at a shop in Galveston:

The smaller one is an old Bromo-Seltzer bottle, but I'm not sure what the other one is. It looks like it could have had a note in it and been thrown out to sea by someone in search of rescue....or love. What stories this bottle could tell!

Beautiful bottles! Did you know that if you keep a rose in water in a blue bottle it will easily grow roots and you can plant it in your garden and enjoy the rose for many years? My sister has tried this and I have seen her roses.

ulla, that's genius. I never heard that. I may have to sneak back to the house I grew up in to see if the old roses are still there.

I adore the color of these bottles. And yes, wouldn't you love to read the note that might have been tucked inside the taller one.

Those are beautiful. I love blue glass as well, though with the wee ones, my collection is in hiding. I'll live vicariously.

I love cobalt blue, too. In fact, I have that a bottle like the one on the left in your photo. I got it in Wiscasset, Maine for four dollars several years ago.
