Heart of Glass - BLENKO GLASS

Beauty? What is beauty?

Agatha Christie said " You agree - I'm sure you agree, that beauty is the only thing worth living for."

Just for today, be aware of the beauty in your world. Take some time to carefully look to your glass collection, observe the glass in the sun, shade, and evening light or candlelight. Appreciate the beauty of this and the details of life. Nurture yourself just for today.

Mr P will cry when he reads these words.
Nothing is more important in this life than taking time to observe beauty and also finding fulfillment in the work.
Thank you for sharing. It is my fondest desire we shall meet you in this year.
In my absence my Blenko research materials are growing.
Reader Elle I sent a check for the glass, it often takes up to 5 weeks plz be patient.
Happy Holiday Everyone
