A Gathering Of Glasses

 I was puttering yesterday and putting stuff away and reorganising some things. I came across this box of glasses and had fun going through it again, remembering some of the plans I have for them.  It amazes me that I have acquired such a variety over several decades of thrifting.

I fell in love with old glasses when I was young and received my grandmother's first pair of glasses. The tiny case, the fragile wee glasses and even the wipe was still there.  I've still got them in her "memory box."

 Lots of fun cases. Let them snap shut and it hurts your finger! Some of these still have their glasses in them.
                                                           Pince Nez anyone?

                                  Tinted, cracked and rusty. What's not to love?

                                                                 Funky Plastic.

                              Long skinny case with baby fine wire glasses. Amazing.

Special glasses with extra lenses on them. I don't know what they were used for, but once again we have an example of an interesting box or package holding a special treasure.

I'd be very tempted to use those rusty glasses to rust dye some fabric! They'd make an interesting 'impression' lol
You have some interesting frames there!
