My uncle is a stained glass artist and one of his specialty items are these delicate airplanes. Unusual, interesting, pretty things to set on your shelf. I love them. When I visited my family recently I was very lucky to be given one by my uncle and I was over the moon! This airplane was especially special as it once belonged to my Grandma.
Then I was scared.
How the heck was I going to get this delicate thing across the Atlantic?
My aunt and uncle found a box and lots of good packing material, spent an age getting it packed just right, we just barely fit the box in my husband’s carry on luggage and careful where we put it all the time, we flew home with it. It made it to our home, safe and sound. It now sits on my alcove bookshelves.
But it’s not just a pretty stained glass airplane. Read on!
I love seeing people’s faces when they pick it up, admire it then discover it’s a kaleidoscope. Pure delight!
