Hi friends! It’s time to continue our eye glass story. If you haven’t read that part 1, hop HERE and leave a comment to get your first entry in our give away!
As you can see, it became a zippie - baggie … I had decided something else but the measurement didn’t fit. If I manage to make ‘that’ what I had planned, you will be the first one to see it!
This story with eye glasses is all about our fantastic give away with ‘FIRMOO’ Global Online Optical Store! Firmoo has offered kindly four $30 designer glasses vouchers! Read all the details for this give away from the part 1. This give away is open till 19th of February 2013.
Last time I promised to dust all my glasses and here they are … not all but all from my years in Greece. One pair is missing and I can’t understand how I throw them away, because they were one of the favourites! First they were my eye glasses and later I changed them to sun glasses. They looked like these …
They were magical glasses because through them you looked really well tanned!!! I had them when I came first time to Greece with my friend and I remember how she said sometimes: ‘let me look a little bit with your glasses to see how great tan I have!’
I did my best to give you sunny photos, but I failed today. There was just few sunny moments but mostly it was really cloudy and rainy. The next best backround is my new ‘Happy Days’ quilt! It’s quilted and the binding is pinned.
This quilt was enjoy to make but more about that next time. I have to admit that my glass collection looks a little bit boring but with my small and narrow face, it is always quite a challenge to find good glasses. For me the good = they have something special or fun and I look nice wearing them. Only these vintage glasses seems to be a little bit fun or what? The most right pair is the one I use now.
These two pairs are my favourites! So I guess I should choose Firmoo’s glasses shown above or both pairs I showed to you in my last post
I thought that this time you could tell me if you remember some funny story about glasses. I love these glasses but perhaps they are too funny for ‘serious Mrs. in my age’!
One comment reminded me about what happened long time ago. My first ‘own’ dog was the most sweet Collie ‘Sina’. I named her after Keke Rosberg’s wife Sina. Keke Rosberg is Niko Rosberg’s Finnish father and he was very famous F1 driver! Anyway, once my sweet Sina ate my glasses! I came from sauna and found a hole in the other lense. I started to cry … but at the end fortunately insurance paid the glasses and I fixed them. My optician told that it’s not unusual that dogs like our glasses, because they have the smell from our skin.
I don’t like to sew zippers but it’s always good to do something we don’t feel so comfortable. Mostly it’s my sewing machine’s fault, because I can’t change the foot.
I really like this big pouch – I don’t know if I use it or perhaps it goes to my shop. For the moment I enjoy watching it on my sewing table! It’s good size, firm, quilted with fleece and fusible web and I like the lining, too! Perhaps I should throw all my old glasses in it!
Here is my sewing assistant, very busy, full of ideas and inspiration in her creative space!

Thank you for joining my eye glasses stories and sharing yours! Now I shall go to finish the binding on my ‘Happy Days’ quilt and later we shall see a movie on tv ‘I hate Valentine’s Day’. I love the movie ‘My Greek Wedding’ and the actors are same, so I hope this one is also good and funny!
