Just A Little Bit

 I was exhausted from the week so the only junking I ventured out for was the old, reliable VOA.  Okay, I went twice, but who's counting...  On the first trip I came home with the Faberge hankies in original box and the little padded picture in the plastic frame.  That will go into the pile of fodder for future wunderkammers.
 I passed on the glass ball and the metal purse on the first pass.  The little purse was $7.99 but I don't think it is very old so I waffled on it. On the way home I stopped at the library to pick up my stack of picture books that came in on hold.  I got 4 Steampunk books.  When I quickly flipped through them I realized I NEEDED to own that glass ball and the little purse.  Just in case I might NEED them, you know?  I was glad I went back because the green ball vase had magically appeared.  I gave a DIL the two blue one I had last weekend because she said she wanted to collect colored glass.  Well, now she has three and you know what that means.
I am positive this crackly glass ball can be the start of something remarkable.  Or at least cool.
