This is a fascinating post. I just love all of the vintage containers. This is a fabulous collection. Aren’t you glad your grandmother kept them. And the picture of her and your mother is a real treasure.

Love all the containers, what fun memories! I have such wonderful memories of my grandparents, and I think I as well fell in love with antiques and vintage things because of things that they had held onto so dearly for many years. Fun post, thanks for sharing how you got started with your love of "old" things. Amy

What a fabulous collection! I haven't used Noxzema in years but I always loved the smell.


What great vintage items and so much more special that they came from your grandma's home :)



I really enjoyed seeing these vintage products. I'm glad they were saved all these years by your grandmother. I remember Noxema in the blue glass jars yet when I was a teenager in the '70s.

What an awesome story! What wonderful treasures....I would love to stay at Grandma's...


Anna, was my grandmother's name on my father's side. I think she may have had theses same things in her bathroom medicine cabinet. I loved seeing those old bottles and jars. The best part is they were your grandmother's. Love this post.

What a wonderful story. It is interesting how our families have influenced our art work and hobbies. I'm so thankful for a grandmother who loved fabric arts and sewing. She passed it on to my mother and them to me. I'm now hoping to pass that love on to my granddaughters.

Thanks for such an interesting post.


Wow how cool is that! What an amazing story and wonderful collection. They are treasures.


What a great collection, and special that they belonged to your grandma. Loved the photo too. Happy VTT

What a great story of how it all started for you. Glad you were able to take them home with you.
