Cozy Little Corner of my World...

 My dad loved, absolutely loved red glassware.  This set is one of his favorites, and it is truly spectacular in the light.  I placed a flameless candle inside, and it is a pretty glow during the evenings.  The original set had eight glasses, but I made the mistake of dusting it with a feather boa duster, and the feathers snagged on the cut glass and jerked one little vessel to an untimely death...  I remember my mom's first words were, "GO home!"  haha...  I guess my "help" was not really needed that day.  Daddy didn't act like he cared, but I know he was disappointed.
 Old painted bowls are near and dear to my heart....  This one with the dark grapes is especially the kind I love.
 I am beginning to sneak in a bit of holiday decorating like this bit of holly mixed with a few autumn leaves....


 And one little glimpse into the corner china cupboard where I store the plates  I use the most, these white china ones from Pfaltzgraff...  Country Cupboard is the name....
Cozy little corner....  Have a good week.

Love the red glasses! How clever to put a flameless tea light there!

Oh my - I felt like I was a fly on the wall watching that glass go flying. I'll bet you still "feel" that incident .. I hate it when those kinds of accidents happen.. but you sure did a good job of writting about it!

I had a dear friend break a red glass of mine. We never were able to find a replacement...but it is only a glass....but accidents do happen. I think that is why I love old kitchen antiques...so many are crockery and wood...a little harder to break!!
