gold See Concept reading glasses

This is the 100th Wednesday Wish so we’ve decided to pension off the series – after all, there are only so many things one can wish for! These See Concept reading glasses are a fairly long-standing wish list entry.

Last October, we went to Gimbals Restaurant in Sowerby Bridge to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I couldn’t read the menu because I forgot to put my reading glasses in my handbag before I left home. But I needn’t have feared, the restaurant had a few of these fantastic reading glasses on stands for just that very dilemma!

Before we left the restaurant that night, I made a mental note to remember the name of the company that made them so I could get myself a pair for my bedside table. Needless to say I’d forgotten it before we got home! I’ve done countless Google searches for “glasses on a chain”, “reading glasses on stand”, “glasses with handle” but to no avail, I couldn’t track them down.

Last week Fab had a “Just for Fun” sale and eureka, there they were! They’re available in lots of colours but I think I’ll plump for a luxe gold pair!

Birdcage candle holders from Prety Dandy

These bird cage candle holders from Pretty Dandy are, well… pretty dandy! I’d love at least half a dozen of these dotted around the garden, throwing light & shadow on the trees and plants during these sultry summer evenings we’ve been enjoying outdoors. They can even come indoors and perhaps house colourful little birds like these!

Justin lost the majority of his footwear in last June’s flood – he kept all his walking gear in the porch just inside the front door. Now that we’re having a prolonged heatwave his walking boots (with socks) make his feet a tad warm to put it mildly. I’ve had a pair of these Keen Newport sandals for years and they’re so comfortable and durable I’ve talked him into getting himself a pair too. We’ll soon be only a a hair’s breadth away from rocking a pair of matching teddy bear jumpers! :-)
