Solstice, Sugar Tongs and Stained Glass

This beautiful piece was made by Natalia Manley and was on exhibition in São Paulo Brazil 2016. Isn’t it remarkable and just perfect for today, Winter Solstice, as the shortest day passes and the days begin to lengthen. Happy days!

We were in Truro today and had lunch in Charlotte’s Tea Rooms where the cut glass sugar bowl had its own built-in sugar tongs.

As we were leaving, I noticed this stained glass window for the first time.

I have just realised what a gloriously golden post this is! Serendipity in honour of the return of the Sun!

Happy Solstice to all my Readers.
