MacBride Bouquet

My initial paperweight design created in 2009 is a tribute to my former neighbor and Aunt, a vibrant 102-year-old lady named Margaret MacBride. As she grew older, I assumed the annual task of repairing the trellis that supported her favorite old-fashioned climbing rose with its abundant crop of pink blossoms. Years earlier Margaret’s husband, also named David, constructed this support. I wanted this paperweight to capture the memory of her much loved bloom-laden trellis.
