New Glasses and Cuckoo Clocks

Check out these AMAZING glasses I found at the thrift store on Saturday. Well, my boyfriend Gavin really found them, but somehow I seem to have them in my possession. If only I did NOT have 20/20 vision. I know this sounds bad, but I really am jealous of those who get to wear glass. what an adorable accessory!

I like to think up stories of where my thrift finds come from. These particular glasses came from an old man named Freddy. Freddy lived in Selma, Alabama. Freddy had a pretty wife named Sue, and two wonderful children named Petuna and Angie. Freddy was a blueberry farmer by day, and a cuckoo clock creator by night. He needed these very specific glasses to see the tiny nobs and buttons on the clocks. They served him well for 45 years, and now they happen to be in my possession.

Do you ever make up stories, or think of who owned your vintage beauties before they were vintage?

  1. Love the glasses and your idea of a story behind them!
    I always think about where my finds may have come from and who may have owned them. Makes me feel like I own a little bit of history :)
