See how it is made!

These youngsters were getting quite a treat!
Seeing how glass can be turned into something beautiful and useful!
This is at the Art of Fire in Laytonsville, Maryland.
Right now, with our wintry weather, this summer scene and the heat of
the glass furnace is especially appealing!

Gifts for our studio mascot

I admit that I can take my wonderful cat for granted sometimes.
But my students never let me do that.
And so here you see her the week before Christmas with
her new toys courtesy of one student who loves her more than anyone!
Of course how to you measure love anyway?
You don't.
You just know it is.

Words of Love

My Mother would be more than surprised to know I am going to share a beautiful message she wrote to my Dad for a birthday card in the 42nd year of their 70 year marriage. But it makes me see so much of what was the vital factor in their relationship ~ BEAUTY. Here is the letter:

To My Darling

On a most important Day (my Dad's 65th birthday) we've been going around together for so short a time ~ our life a kaleidoscope of color, so much enrichment, so much of joy, that whatever shadows crossed our paths the brilliance of our life has kept them all subdued.

Well, that is how I feel on your birthday ~ I hope you feel that way too.

Many many more wonderful years.

I love you.

Your Ginni
