Isn't it interesting the things that we are attracted to? I have often wondered why I love certain things when there is no context to do so.
Like green depression glass!!
I have collected glasses, bowls, plates, pitchers, cake plates
and this special juice bowl...it was a thrill every piece I found in a rummage, garage sale....
I marvel that the depression glass was once a premium, it came with purchases of certain foods.
Today one gets coupons...even Cracker Jacks is a big disappointment. Remember the fun toys that USED to be in a CJ box?
So glad I fell in love with this beautiful glass, the color, clarity, patterns and history. It is a joy to hand down to my daughter and her daughter.
One wonderful way to preserve memories of things we have collected is through photography....simply taking a picture.
It was fun to pose the little juice bowl, take photographs and then apply some textures.
Some put away their special collections, but I have found great joy
in displaying and using those objects that I have been drawn to.
How many generational hands will this bowl pass through.
Will there come a time when it is discarded, like it was before I found it? Who previously owned it...it had to have been 50-60 years old when it came to our home where it is loved.
