Colored glass has always been a passion of mine. Some of these
are old family pieces. The blue dish on the lower
left side came from a Goodwill Sale. The amethyst bowl
on the other side came from a yard sale for 50c. One of my
old antique mall friends suggested a hefty price for resell. Now
I'm glad it didn't sell.
We're packing! I am a happy woman and am going to love to pack because it means we are moving. Today I was thinking of William P. Young's book, The Shack. In the book he refers to an event in his life as his "Great Sadness". My "Great Sadness" for many years was being so far away from my family. I venture to say we all have have a "Great Sadness" in our lives.
After two "no shows" for estimates from other movers and me being on the phone for half a day, yesterday we were pleased when Kirk showed up at our door, on time. We now have a contract with Mayflower for our cross country move. Kirk did an excellent job, thank you again Kirk if you happen to read this.
This afternoon we went to Home Depot and bought some boxes. The winds are so strong here we could not get them to the car without them flying out of the carts! I had to stand by both carts outside the doorway until Clint drove the car and parked in front to pick them up.
|Clint's martini glasses.|
|Recently I saw these vintage glasses in a magazine.|
Clint's mom gave them to us. Like the Moroccan
influence. They look good with some Lenox Eternal
dishes my mom gave us.
|Always fond of old cobalt blue glass, I like these new ones, too,|
with the blue swirls
Had them displayed on those old small glass custard cups.
Whatever works, the cups were hidden from view when
they were displayed in the cabinet.
