Since We May Be Entering Our Own Depression

At the arts and crafts fair, when we went to the pumpkin patch for the first (of three times this year) there was a vendor there with wind chimes…which I collect….made out of glass plates. She goes to garage sales, auctions and estate sales and buys antique glass plates. Then she turns them into wind chimes. What an original and great idea, isn’t it?

I had three or four I would have scooped up if I had the money. But I could only have one, soI finally settled on this one. She said it was called Twiggy, but after researching I think it is called Pebble Leaf pattern. Either way, it was manufactured by the Indiana Glass Company during the depression and it is awesome. It looks wonderful above my kitchen sink and now I know it is a piece of history. And to think…I only bought it because it was pretty and green! When the breeze comes in the window, the sound is lilting, tinkling and soothing. A very good find, if you as me.

By the way, this is a post I started back at the beginning of October. That is how far behind I am in blogging. Sigh. If we are all lucky I will introduce you to my new kitten before she is an elderly feline!
