Moment of Luxury

Luxury and beauty surround us all daily, we do not always see these qualities, and we certainly do not take advantage of them.
Moments of Luxury - PBS Series. One that I continue to enjoy.
The phrase Moment of Luxury keeps returning - can spending an hour with your grand kids watching West Virginia Glass being made qualify as a "Moment of Luxury"?
I proclaim it can.
Ask your readers to stop in Weston West Virginia at Appalachian Glass. www.appglass.com There Chip Turner will demonstrate how to blow and fire glass, he may even let them participate.
Blenko Glass has an excellent observation site - however, it isn't open for on Saturday and Sunday.
Enjoy reading your column.

I see that you are making sure that when we go to Weston,WV that we don't miss nothing. Went to the site and will go back later. That purple vase caught my eye and Sage came to mind. Is a beautiful day so far here in Cabin Creek and that is a moment of luxury, NO SNOWFLAKES, just daylight. Then a knew site. Wonderful. Well want to go check the site out. God Bless Roxie
