Update: You are all so amazing, I've left comments for each of your thoughtful posts!
Even if you've only known me a short time, you know I am enamoured by levels. In some way, they have become a metaphor for my life. I love the catchy phrases, "level the playing field" or "keep your life in balance". Have any more?.
So when my husband brought home this vintage wooden level holder, with 3 glass levels inside I was so pleased. I have a small collection of vintage level oddities. I can only imagine the crafts person that used this in his/her work and what they made.
It was particularly appropriate since I had some bad level news on Friday. Ian, my level guy from Europe told me that the "overseas" factory that wanted to copy my level necklaces finally put in an order for 2500 levels. His boss said, "Sell them, business is business".
Sad as that makes me, I am thinking of the young people who will be working in a factory producing copies of my designs for endless hours a day. That enrages me.
When they hit the stores, I may buy a few, set them in the parking lot and run over them with my car. No, I'm not always nice.
But, I always kiss the ones I love. A lot.
ps Thanks for stopping by my blog today, it means a lot, always.
