  2. Now, if the crystal phone actually WORKED … wouldn’t that be something! No slamming down that receiver 😉 I hope you are having a grand time!

    Yowzer! That phone!! I think I wouldn’t mind getting a call from a collection agency on that beauty. All I would need is Cinderella’s glass slippers….and they probably make those too!! Lol.

    What skill – and sense of humor! – to make that phone! Maybe I’m imagining, but it looks like the handle hold cups for dip and a place in the dial for chips!

  5. How I would love to go to the place where Waterford crystal is made! I love crystal, especially old crystal. A beautiful wine glass or vase…..

    Crystal is so pretty. We watched some crystal being made in Halifax last year – the only place that blows lead crystal in North America, I think we were told. Visiting the Waterford studios would be so interesting.

    Great choice Judy, and I also loved your next post about your trip. We loved Ireland. The countryside is glorious and the people so amazingly friendly. One of the few places one can still feel safe when choosing to travel!

    Did you go broke buying everything they had? That phone is just amazing! What a great experience!

    • I didn’t go broke, but I do have a package coming. 🙂 I thought since I probably wouldn’t get back there, it was only right that I should have a souvenir of the tour, right? Then, of course, my daughter’s anniversary is this month so I figured that would make a good gift. The tour was interesting from the use of molds, watching them blow the hot glass and then sand it – amazing process to wind up with those gorgeous pieces of Waterford crystal.

    really cool to see the crystal maker – fun college and the phone felt – well – reminded me of the 1970s for some reason – maybe that is a time when i first saw a lot of crystal….
