Staring off, lost in other thoughts, my mind slowly recognized this little jewel hanging from the bedroom ceiling.
And I remembered the day I found it. It was already hot as blazes, about 10am on a Saturday morning. Walking up a driveway, I had to step in front of a box to let a lady piled high with her goods get around me. Without thinking I looked down in the box and there is was. NO one was looking at it. I bent over to see the price tag, $25. Thought I'd faint! At the bottom of the box was all the Vintage prisms.
Suddenly I was a guard dog, trying to get hubby's attention and not look like I had found a pile of GOLD. He rushed over, saw the goods and began orchestrating the process. I would go to the owner and stand while he picked the box and followed me with $$.
$25 lighter, it was loaded in my car and I was hyperventilating and talking non-stop, making NO sense. Got it home cleaned years in an attic off it and Hubby hung it up for me.
I still love it!
Enjoy this gorgeous spring we are having,
