MY GORGEOUS CAT.
THAT GHASTLY CANDLESTICK.
THE BRASS GEMSTONE GLOBE WHICH WAS A GIFT
You've seen my gorgeous cat, Scruffy, before ... who is poorly named because he isn't scruffy at all. His name when we adopted him was Fluffy and we wanted something a bit more distinguished. Scruffy can hardly be called a distinguished name, but the name had to be similar to his original one so he would quickly learn to answer it. (He was eight years old when we adopted him.)
The ghastly candlesticks you have also seen before. They were brought home from India by my grandfather after World War I. I haven't decided what to do with them yet, so they are still displayed in the open since I had my last foray into eBay to see if they would be worth anything.
The gift of the gemstone globe was given to my husband as a commemoration gift of so many years as pastor of our church. (I don't remember how many years it commemorated, sorry. We were there for 28 years.He is not here right now for me to ask. But I know he will remember.) It is really rather beautiful. The gemstones inlaid in it are semi-precious, such as Lapis and Mother of Pearl. The oceans are done in Lapis.
I will be missing ABC Wednesday for the next two weeks. Wedding plans at our house. Big happy times and family get together.
