Do you have a Glass Collecting Patience story to share?
My friend Larry from Serenity Glass of Texas often suggest having patience is the key to a great glass collection. Personally patience is a virtue I'm developing.
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/91373.Paul_Sweeney Paul Sweeney - Financial Advisor / and one of my favorite authors had this to say about Patience.
How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young? ~Paul Sweeney
Reader Larry Thompson (son of Blenko Glass Craftsman Harry Thompson has both a great glass collection and Patience. Red his note - 10 years he waits for the appropriate stopper!
DR. Hillary , We purchased a 7054 in the early 70s and it got broken after we had it about 10 years, the stopper was undamaged so we had been looking for an other bottle for many years. When we saw this one on eBay with out a stopper we jumped on it . I need to do a little fitting on the stopper to make an ideal fit. Thanks Larry T.
