Storm Glass

It feels like Christmas is barreling down and in an effort to get it all ready as quickly as possible I have been dashing around buying things. Unfortunately I seem to buy myself things, why does that always happen? These silver sneakers for example.

I guess it is just lucky I didn't see one of these beautiful Storm Glasses in my travels.  I have a friend who has one and it is so magical. It predicts the weather by either being clear or crystalline and was originally used on by Admiral Robert Fitzroy on his voyage with Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle. I bet they had some interesting chats.
