  1. identifying bottles

    I've inherited some perfumes which I cannot identify, and am wondering wether there is a website with pictures? They are mainly miniature bottles. I've tried googling the descriptions and have been to several perfume retailers, but I'm still drawing a blank with some of them.
    Thank you!
  2. 212 On Ice

    Wow!! This is like.. the epitome of what I love. Unfortunately the one I smelled is the one from 2002 and is discontinued..

It was launched in 1930, when she was a teenager living on a farm in Mississippi. Her family probably couldnít have bought Joy unless they went to Vicksburg. Most likely my father sent it back from France when he was there in WWII. My mother wore this on special occasions as a young wife, as a new mother and as an established member of her community. ...
  5. New Mexico, Nuts, and Incense

    OK, first New Mexico; nuts and incense later on.

    I spent a week in New Mexico at the end of May with my husband Russ. (Yes, he's still my husband, according to the California Supreme Court). We had a great time relaxing and sight-seeing (and shopping, of course), as well as an amazing revelation about the cultural diversity of the Southwestern United States.
