Gram’s glass collection, 6.4.2016

Dear Molly, Your grandmother, Ginny, collected green depression era glass. It was everywhere in her house along with everything else that she collected – dolls, keys, prints, frogs, turtles, kitchen tools, teapots, doll houses, decorative plates, magnets, pillows, photographs, figurines, perfume bottles, hat pins – all of it immaculate, arranged just so, and in its place. All of it mundane, mysterious, fascinating. Furniture, sun catchers, costume jewelry, shoes, handbags, journals, tea towels, seashells, ships in bottles, plants, sea glass. If it was worth having, it was worth having a set.
