I have bought some at Estate sales, and have them in my bedroom. I don't know why they appeal to me so much, possible because they remind me of Aunt Evelyn. I didn't get the ones she had and of course they seemed so much more beautiful than the ones I have. But they were probably the same. Things look different to us when we are kids than they do when we grow up and see reality.
This too shall pass.
It may pass like a kidney stone,
But it will pass.
