Remember I told you about my "new" vintage glasses I found in my dad's childhood home?
I just got them back from the optician and I can now use them! I've worn them all day and absolutely love them. I have been looking for some cool cat eye glasses for ages but never found the right pair for me. This caused me to wear normal boring glasses (and they're not that pretty either).During our holiday to Northern Norway I found the perfect pair. Well, my dad found them. We went to see his childhood home and he found his mum's old purse. Touching moment, he looked both sad and happy at the same time. He pulled out a red small purse and then he said sadly "oh, my mummy's old glasses" and took them out. They were PERFECT! I asked to try them on just for fun and realised they were the perfect pair!! I was in heaven!
I asked my dad if I could keep them and get the right strength so I could use them, and he said yes. I don't think he ever had dreamt of his daughter wearing his mummy's old glasses with such pride and happiness that I do today. He hasn't seen me wearing them yet but I can imagine it'll bring back some good memories for him.
The thing I like the best about them is that they have belonged to my very own grandmother, and that she's somewhere looking at me smiling. They are extremely personal, not just a pair of glasses I happened to find in a garage sale or whatever. They have been in that old house for many many years now, and would probably have stayed there forever if it hadn't been for dad opening that purse. I am extremely happy to have them and can't wait to show them to the world! But of course, before the world will see them, I wanna share them with my oh so lovely blog readers!
What do you think? I love them! :)
