A thing of beauty

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
pass into nothingness; 
but still will keep A bower quiet for us,.....

so wrote John Keats (1795-1821)

A beautiful day it was, filled with beauty. 

In the morning sunlight in our backyard. 
She is going to be 15 in June.
This was Michal (19) about the same age as Yael.

and this was Sarai (17) when she was 15!

Then my mom came to visit today and brought me this!

Together we visited a small local thrift store and look what I found!

A pair of lovely yellow amber glass votives!

and a tin (pewter) tumbler, lovely decorated. It's stamped on the bottom with an eagle and the letters A and F I think, but I didn't have the time yet to check it out.  It's great to put my cake forks in! Love love!

I also found a tiny pepper pot (I think it is). 
I think it's silverplate on a blue container. Sweet.

and this lovely pair of vases!

May you all have a beautiful weekend!
