New Crayons!

My favorite time of year, growing up, was when we received the list from school for school supplies! I remember, my mother and I would take the list and go to the store to buy what I needed for the new school year. Always, always included on that list were new crayons! Now, for school, we could only buy the 24 size crayons, but, inevitably, I would find, when we got home, a new box of 64 crayons waiting for me to take to my room! I've always loved shopping for school supplies. I remember buying pencils, pens, paper, and crayons. When my children were old enough to go to school, we'd go together to buy what they needed for school. Again, they could only take the 24 pack of crayons to school, but, inevitably, they would find a package of 64 crayons when they got home. Going through all the colors was like finding gold at the end of the rainbow. Even now, I can smell the wax of new crayons in the air. Imagine that, and it's almost summer. New crayons, again!

Still love the 64 colors! Think we were a lot alike as kids when it came to crayons.

So are your favorite rods of glass the same as your favorite Crayola colors?

My favorite's were magenta and cornflower blue.

Cornflower might be pajama blue and a good magenta is not easily found in the glass world. Cranberry perhaps.
