I just love it, I have always loved old things. I can remember as a child going through my Grandmothers desk and finding treasures like an old black glass ball that had answers in it. I would ask it will I be rich $$ when I grow up? It said NO. It was right. It had all kinds of answers in it. I would love to have that now. My grandparents moved to Florida when they retired, my Grandfather passed away , so Grandmother packed up to move back to where my Mother lived. at the time. Anyway my cousins got most of my Grandparents old items. I am sure the black glass ball lives in Jacksonville Florida now. Along with trunks, a ceramic snake my Grandfather bought in Arizona one year on one of their trips out west. Oh and Grandmothers desk also. I still have pictures of her desk with a cousin sitting under it. Funny that is the only things I can remember she had when they lived in Illinois. Oh wait a minute she had a big glass basket that always set on the refigerator. I have that. I broke it once, I cried and finally found a company to repair it. So I sent it off in the mail. It came back looking awful. So I cried again. We are not suppose to cry over spilled milk, but this was Grandmas glass basket.
Hope you enjoy my pictures today. For a close up click on the pictures, then click again. They will be very large. I like them like that.
