Draped Lady – Fragile and Vintage!

There are two challenges this week that I felt that my post would fit. So I just had to do it this way!

The first challenge is Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote — Fragile.   My mother always had the most beautiful items in her home when I was growing up. This piece was always one of my favorites. I’m sure that she was always so nervous that I was going to break some of her items because I was fascinated by them. I am so happy that I didn’t break it because now it’s mine! The Draped Lady flower frog was produced by Cambridge Glass in the 1920s and 1930s.

Guard your fragile life carefully.  Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.

    Perfect image to share for both challenges! And the quote so appropriate. I am in love with the original photo, the color is so gorgeous. But the first vintage edit is lovely … it reminds me of vintage bottle glass. Happy Birthday!!!!!
