Seeing Is Believing



A celebrity is a person who works hard all his life to become well known, then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized. ~Fred Allen

Well, here is the second and last part of my post about glasses. How many of you guessed that our Anne Marie has just gotten glasses? She came over to show us just hours after she got them. Not only did she fail the letter chart at the eye doctor, she even failed the picture chart! Her mommy let her choose any frames that she wanted, because if she liked them,  then she would WEAR them. So Anne is showing you the pink plaid glasses she chose, I think they are very tasteful, considering she could have gotten ANYTHING! She was very concerned about going to school the first day with the glasses, but it all worked out fine, and very soon, another girl in her class came in with glasses, too. Anne is continuing to be amazed with the things she SEES now, and is sending you a great big smile! My header is Anne with her daddy, our son Mike.

She chose well.

I failed my eye chart test, too, and I was thrilled with glasses, seeing so much of what I had been missing for the first 11 years of my life.

The selection of frames available now is wonderful, and Anne Marie still looks her so-cute self, now with one more stylish "accessory."

In this article as also the previous one it is clear again how high the impact of glasses is on your appearance.

Greetings,

I think Anne Marie looks very smart in those glasses! In fact, I want to ask her questions, really hard questions.
And, I love the frames--very chic!

Best,

they are beautiful glasses and so is she. they fit her face perfect and she looks adorable. and i know that feeling. when i got my first pair of tri focals the world was all new.. so glad they found she needed them early. my poor son went to 7th grade before we found he could see nothing except what was in his hands

Hey, Jinny! Your grand looks GRAND in those glasses!
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am just blessed with Goodwill finds. Always have been. I have never wanted NEW 'new' stuff - would rather have a bargain and the thrill of the hunt!

Dee said...

She looks adorable in them and I think she chose well....I did guess. :)

Karin said...

She's got a sense of style and picked out a great pair! Fantastic to be able to see now!

Anne Marie looks very cute with her glasses! She picked really nice frame - looks so good on her :-)
I'm happy for her that she can see much better. I know how it feels...Everything is blur without glasses or contact lenses for my eyes.

So Anne is wearing glasses now... young for her age but it is better to wear now than to strain her eyes further.. I wore mine at the age of 16 and ever since then, I try to maintain my eye power till this age today.. :)

Ann said...

She picked out a great frames. They look fabulous on her.

Your little Anne is precious and looks like she should be a glasses fashion model! My daughter always wanted glasses, she even tried to fail the test as school once so she could get glasses.

Hi Ginny, Beautiful granddaughter with her new glasses! I wore glasses full-time for forty years before my cataract surgery. Have a super good day tomorrow!

I was blessed this month when I got my driver's licenses renewed until 2019. I was afraid I would not pass the eye test. She will do fine with them. Sometimes children can be cruel, but I trust that does not happen to her. The eyes are so most important to me. How are you doing?

Linda said...

Great choice! She looks wonderful.

Betsy Adams said...

I had a son like that, we didn't know that he couldn't see until he went to school and had trouble with the blackboard.
Anne Marie looks very pretty in her glasses.

She looks adorable in her glasses. They are very tasteful and suit her face well.

SquirrelQueen said...

I love those glasses on Anne Marie, they make her look more grown up and even more beautiful. Makes me wish I wore glasses.

Ginny, you asked about the cat's eyes photos. They were taken with the camera on macro setting. It was pure luck that I got the shots, these guys move fast. I have lots of blurry photos.

she is adorable and looks so sweet with her new glasses. My Sam started wearing glasses at an early age. He has since had surgery and now he can see much better than me! Y'all enjoy a wonderful day.
