Celebration - Diamonds and Daffodils

Anything to brighten the day! These do it very well. My daughters were cleaning out an apartment after a death in the family and gave this to me, knowing how I love crystals and bright things. I set it on a bottle neck in the kitchen window for now. It is a Tiffany & Co. crystal faceted diamond-shaped prism paperweight. It's marked Tiffany & Co. on the side, with a monogrammed title "New York Times Magazine" on the bottom. It weighs about 1.25 lbs. and measures about 4 inches tall with 3.25" diameter. 
I found some very nice pictures of this exact piece on the internet!

 Don't ask me its monetary worth - I don't care. It brightens my life - just like the dozen of the very first daffodils that bloomed up in the old rock garden yesterday! My mother planted them MANY years ago and there are hundreds more to pop open.
