Just Pretty Glass! (Photo Friday)

“Verse is a chalise, place within it only
     a stainless thought;
From out whose deeps the smouldering
     radiance sparkles
Like bubbles in a golden vintage

   Sometimes after a very busy week, you just have to relax and look at pretty, sparkly things. I am not really a diamond, or ruby kind of girl. I love the look of old glass it makes me happy. Enjoy.

 Have a great weekend.
