Crystal Maze

We celebrated our Crystal anniversary in 2006.
It was quite a year as my sister celebrated her Pearl anniversary (30 years), it was my Half Century birthday (sadly no 50% telegram from HRH), and Dad had been gone ten.
The Announcement Page in the local paper was full of ‘us’ and a poem I wrote for Dad was printed in the Readers Letters for Father’s Day.

I wanted to get a special gift for Hubby, but had no idea what.
That was until I was walking down Poole High Street one lunch time and came across a lovely little shop called The Lemon Tree.
Inside, they had all kinds of handmade craft items, incense candles, tie-dye linens, jewelry, and the perfect unique gift I was looking for.

For years it held pride of place on top of my piano, lighting the room with its refracted sun rays and natural beauty.
Liberace may have had a candelabra, but Hubby and I had this:

This perfect crystal prism caught my eye and as you can see from these pictures, it looks different from every angle.
It now sits on the shelf along with our other treasures that can never be replaced.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
