June Birthday in September


My mother asked if there was something I'd really like for my birthday, coming up in a few weeks. Finally, I thought of the depression glass that I collect, that I always wonder why I never think of when people ask about such things.

Fresh from Replacements, Inc., a clearing house for all that antique china, crystal and silver you are seeking to complete, came a big box today. Since the box was a bit crushed, normal for my delivery men (WHY?), I was a little worried.


When I opened the box, I found the most interesting wrapping material I've seen: this cut paper that holds itself intact with no tape. The cool stuff is piled on my kitchen floor now, with me looking at it wondering what I could use it for.



Even better though, are the Fostoria June sherbet glasses that were carefully packed in it, two to a package. Aren't they delicate and gorgeous?

Chocolate mousse, anyone? And maybe a glass of red wine in the goblets I bought years ago at an antique show? Thanks, Mom and Dad!

  1. Happy Birthday Vickie!

    I guess I was sitting here trying to post a comment and you were posting a new story.

    My best to you!

  3. Thanks, Catherine and Nicola! You're not late on the wishes -- I've got almost two weeks before I'm another year older. ;-)
