Simple Pleasure - Depression Glass

Depression glass is colored translucent glassware that was given away or able to be purchased at a small expense during the Great Depression.  I have a few pieces in my collection.  I have always adored the pink and green pastel shades.

My favorite piece is my grandmother's pink cookie jar.  I have fond memories of getting goodies out of it as a child.  It was given to my sister when my grandmother passed away.  I was young and not collecting yet. When I bought my first home my father bought it from my sister, and gave it to me as a housewarming gift.  It has double the meaning and memories from two special people who are no longer here.
