Sweets For My Sweet..

Someone is in for a real treat today :). Don't you find this candy lovely and utterly delicious? At some point I started to regret I couldn't try these colourful little things... because they look amazingly real!



Through time and across continents, stories of sweets and their inventors intrigue and entertain us. These ones are made of coloured glass, in the best traditions of Murano glass makers. I came across this little 'candy shop' while exploring the picturesque island of Burano, where also every house has a different colour. I find these little sweets incredible - it seems they could be any imaginable colour!

Olga, those are lovely! It is amazing seeing them displayed like that - my parents have a few, but the large collections are extra special.

Thanks for your kind words on my last post. You need to come and read the next post, because there is some good news for you..!

Honestly, when I saw them from the opposite side of the street, I thought they are real and as a huge sweet tooth I had to come closer just to realize that theywere made of glass. :)

Hi Olga,
I had never seen these sweets and if you wouldn’t tell me I’d swear they were for real. They have a beautiful colour, lighted, delicate and (as my zebra) make us want to touch them. But, most of all, what they remind me, is that it was very sweet to have known you. A hug. TI
