Candies by janetb


When I see these candies, I smile for so many reasons. I love their bright colors, fun patterns, and smooth shapes. I love the delightful clacking sound they make as I root through the bowl looking for a favorite to hold up to the light. Most of all, I love the sparkle they produce in the eyes of those who discover them on the sideboard. "Are these glass???" always follows the sparkle as a hand reaches. Indeed, they are.

I ordered these irresistible glass candies from some mail order catalog back in the 1980s and piled them up in the dove-shaped Lenox candy dish we received as a wedding gift. They still sit in that same dish all these years later, and I washed the display today when I cleaned the livingroom — with a smile on my face.

I praise you, Lord, for these glass candies and the simple joy they add to life.
What a beautiful collection Janet and so pretty too. :)

thankfully they look too good to eat! A most cheery display and I like the way you have 'randomly' arranged them for the fine photoshoot.
