Inkwells

Jun 15, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Today we communicate with text messages and email by using smartphones and computers, making pen and ink a thing of the past. But less than 75 years ago, things were different. As recently as 1957, the United States Post Office was still using pens and inkwells. In June of 1957, they switched over to ballpoint pens.

Charmed by Charm Bracelets

Jun 10, 2011 ● By Anonymous

“Love is Blind,” says the inscription on the tiny case that holds a miniature set of eyeglasses, one of 39 charms on a charm bracelet Jeanne Hendricks inherited from her late mother. “As a child, I would take my mother’s charm bracelet, look at every single charm, and play with it as if it were a toy,” recalls Hendricks, who was seven or eight years old when she received her own bracelet. The bracelet she began assembling as a young girl now has 26 charms. “Every time we took a trip, we would buy a charm,” she says. “And when my father traveled, he brought charms back as souvenirs. I think he started the bracelet for my mother when they were first married. My father fought in World War II, and he loved buying jewelry for my mother. Her charm bracelet enabled him to bring back keepsakes from all the places he had been,” she explains while handling both bracelets with love and admiration.

Hello Hydrangea!

Jun 01, 2011 ● By Anonymous

With their billowy heads of pink, blue or white, hydrangeas dominate the garden, as they should. Technically a shrub, hydrangeas produce hefty flower buds, which can range in color between white, pink, purple, and blue or even a mixture of colors. Some varieties of hydrangeas can even change color.
