Sweet papers

Writing about the stained glass window yesterday, set me wondering - when did I first find the interest in looking at them, what first fascinated me about them.

And. a childhood memory came back to me, a lot of sweets, like Roses, used to be wrapped first in a piece of silver paper, then in an outer transparent coloured sheet. As a child I can remember my Dad giving me the coloured sheets to look through, to look at various objects through, or to hold up to the sky to look through.

Maybe that`s where it started from.

I wonder how many others remember doing that?
