    Oh dear…having second thoughts about the Powder Compacts. I just read Lisa's notes on them…different colored stones on each side? Sort of LOVE the mint green and blue. But…will the stones stay on? <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> Might have to try one to see what happens! Or maybe 2…or 3…. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Gotta run…having a “Last Episode of Friends” party, and not a minute too soon. They're not kids anymore! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Having kept silent for a very long time and only “dared” to peek at your witty and funny conversations, finally I just have to comment on the powder compacts. Now this is a topic I am really into. I am such a great fan of ErtÈ and for me it sounds like “a wedding in heaven” (I am not really sure of the English expression here..) having EL compacts with his design. And what do I get? This utterly worn out zodiac theme with designs of him from when he no longer made those distinguished and truly elegant art deco drawings. However, I do like the Deco Chic compact (mind you not designed by, in my point of view, the very master of art deco) Am I being unfair or does anyone else sense the lack of inspiration and imagination here? As for the JL compacts: “the rest is silence”.

    Hi Karin!

    Welcome to solidperfume.com. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> Have to agree with you 100% on Erte'…can't believe it's the tired, overdone Zodiac signs all over again. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    As far as this site goes, this is what it's for! Opinions, discussion, idea's, sharing “finds”, problems, good things, whatever. Plus, this begins the season for Yard Sales, Auctions (real ones), and Antique Markets…we all like to get out and search for our favorite compacts and solids, then share our treasure hunts here…glad you've started to join in! <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    Hope you continue to “chat” and offer your views on compacts…it's always a pleasure to have fresh thoughts! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Again…Welcome!

    My 2 cents. I'm not really excited about any of these compacts. They are sorta ordinary looking. Much better last year. Just MHO <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ />

    KK –

    Don't be so hard on yourself….that was worth at least a quarter! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> At least we're all in agreement, for now. Where's Sandra…she'll mix it up for sure. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    I think it's some heavy duty REM sleep time down under.

    Just one more thing to be thankful for….Sandra's REM time! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    (I'll pay for that one. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> )

    Well, Sandra is one day ahead of us, I think, so one step ahead too!

    Good that we have someone to keep the board lively <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    So before I take a nap, just want to add that I am disappointed in the Compacts too!

    Karen, nice to see you and that goes without saying for all our other friends frequenting discussions! Saw a beautiful art deco old solid perfume container this morning Karen. Black, square, with diamante in straight lines echoing the square. It was not an EL. If you are interested I can find out the name again. Perfect condition. Will try to get a picture for you if you wish.

    P.S. How do you get the PINK colour! Someone, pleeeeeeeeese answer me!

    Hi Jacky –

    I'll do this in basic black so it will pick up. If you want the deep pink color, just click on color, then delete the color you land on and type in fuchsia. It's that simple.

    As far as Sandra goes, that's a good explanation; however, I thought she slept hanging upside down! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Later,

    She's not an 'OLD BAT' u know! Wait until she wakes up! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Testing out the colour! Should have made it RED for danger!

    I didn't say “Bat.” You did, Jacky! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I know….she's gonna get me for that one! <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Hey…excellent “fuchsia!”

    Just want to extend a big welcome! to Karin. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    It does make me happy to have new members posting and wish everyone one would join in.

    In defense of the powder compacts (which I don't collect) I think in person people will like them better. The silver compact- Nouveau Chic is really simple and elegant. We'll just have to wait and see. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />
