This little paperweight is really important to me. It belonged to my grandmother (whose USO photos you can find in my vintage gallery.) I was always fascinated by the tiny little flowers trapped inside the bubble. After she passed, it was one of the things I kept from her house to remind me of her and the stories she would tell me about it. She told me that fairies put the flowers there to keep them safe from the goblins because they were magical. I think she bought it in the 50's. It is one of my most treasured possessions.
