The Trouble with Glasses

Since I broke my glasses, seems I'm having trouble with other glass objects.  (By the way, the reason my glasses had to go to Denmark to be repaired was that they are discontinued and the manufacturer agreed to make me a new pair with the template they kept on file.  Pretty cool.)   Anyway, I had all of this vintage sewing stuff in a glass cloche.  I moved it so it wouldn't get broken by my baby grand and her friend Guy who were visiting.  When I went to put it back, of course, I broke it.  Then, while sitting in this very chair ,I glanced over to see this box on a shelf in my office. This is perfect.  It has a soft back so I pinned the sewing items securely to the back and stacked the thread and wrapped several measuring tapes here and there.   Thanks to my friend Jean who always thinks of me when we get donated items that are vintage.  (We, as in my Guild) The box was thrifted a while back and we had the glass replaced because it was etched with a family name.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.  Safer too.

 Out and about...A walk a few minutes from home, flying fish!

 I often photograph this pretty place,

 Appreciating nature in all seasons.

 We walked the neighborhood with Penny last weekend.  She tripped and fell.  When she saw this bench, she found the perfect spot to recover.  Luckily, it's in the yard of a neighbor I know.
 The kiwi vine on our arbor has not a bit of pink this year.

My front yard is overrun with Queen Anne's Lace, with a spattering of Hostas. I can't wait to see them all in bloom.  I was thrilled when some volunteers took root,

In a neighbors garden, silvery Lamb's-ear.  Of course you have to stop and touch,

So many wonderful things to see.

Looking forward to a beautiful weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.

I loved walking with you Penny and seeing sights you see daily.
Everything is so pretty!
Do you love green as much as I do?
So bright, fresh and GREEN!
I liked the memory box too.
All your special sewing things, tucked safely away from the "littles."
Very nice and vintage.
