Sometimes it's the small things...

... that make all the difference. I am still in a sort of a winter gloom and a couple of days ago, when I was walking around with Robert, we got into a store and there was a scene that got me totally glued. On a white, well-lit table there was a nice setting of tall glass flower-vases in ... all the colours that seemed to have been gone for ages. Yellow, bright blue, orange, red, green. I just stood there like a child and I couldn't get my eyes off of those colours. It seemed like Spring. So, eventually, I had to buy one of them, but it was saving its magic until today, when we finally got some sun. And then it started to shine under the sunbeams and I started to smile and all was okay.

Yes, sometimes it is the small things that make and bring all the difference.

I don't usually like orange, but that is really pretty.

Orange isn't my colour either, but this one... I just couldn't resist it.

Same for me. First orange "object", but it was a love at first sight.

I love color also and I love how it just mixes together into a bright, colorful tableau.

This vase is very nice in a nice shade of orange.

Thanks! It was so magnetic I couldn't resist it, although orange is not one of "my" colours. Usually it would've been red, but this time...

Is it that handcrafted Murano glass I've heard about?

No, that's "plain", but still handcrafted Leonardo stuff. But I do have some Murano in the house.
