I thought I would answer some questions on my auction purchase. This is a 19th century atomizer. Menthol would be put in the bottom of the crock and hot water poured over to make a mist. The glass inhaler on the top would go in the person's mounth and they would breathe in the vapors. It is from England and on line is selling in mint condition for about 70 dollars US. Mine is not in mint condition.....which I personally can relate to!
This is as clear as I could get the writing...but this is what sold me on the piece
My husband bid on some crockery for me. He got the gold rimmed piece along with 2 other plain 2 quart crocks for $10.00. I didn't KNOW I need the gold one, but now that I have it, I don't know what I did without it!
Yesterday I had to go to the doctor, so we stopped at a gourmet grocery store. I picked up some heirloom tomatoes. I see them on Barefoot Contessa and have been wanting to try them. My husband wouldn't even think about trying them.....but they were delicious. Especially the brown one!
I mixed some slices of each with mozzerella pieces in garlic oil. Yum!
There you have it....a big exciting day in the life of Ceekay!!! I am feeling really quite well right now and enjoying every moment!! The windchime in the backyard is chiming and Valerie Parr Hill is talking on QVC....now, can YOU beat that excitement?
Have a good day!
