I Think I’m Loosing My Marbles!

Day 29 / 365

You may not have lost all your marbles, but there’s definitely a hole in the bag.   🙂

Interesting Fact: The glass maker Elias Greiner Vetters Sohn worked for Farbglashuette Lauscha, a German glass company founded in the 1500s. In 1846 he invented the marbelschere, or marble scissors, with which a glassmaker could cut a rope of glass and forms balls with the soft pieces. Greiner received a patent in 1849 for the invention of “artificial semi-precious and precious stone balls”, or as we call them, glass marbles. To produce enough of these hand-made marbles, the company gave Greiner his own factory.  ( http://www.neatorama.com/2010/11/03/neatolicious-fun-facts-marbles/ )
