I found this little perfume bottle in a jar of buttons that I bought at an auction. I love it. It's tiny; about 2 inches, that's it. I love the string wrapped around the stopper. And the lable is wonderful. Red and turquoise lettering. I'ts just plain and simple. It's so tiny I had trouble reading it even with my glasses on.
Perfume. Richard Hudnut. New York. Paris. 1/4 fl oz.
I'm the girl that chooses a book by its cover. I'm a sucker for a great lable every time. I'd have bought this bottle had it not been a such a lovely bonus.
Well, its the second week of March and it's still winter here.
I baked some rice pudding and I thought I'd share the recipe. It's my Mom's recipe and it's unlike any rice pudding I've had elswhere. It's baked and is custardy more than pudding-like. One of my brothers requested this instead of birthday cake each year.
