LOL Wascally! I guess I knew what it meant, just not what the geneisis of the phrase is. But thank you for taking the time to look it up for me. You're too good!!

And now I feel like I should properly check it out. So I have. This is from www.phrases.org.uk:

The phrase was originally 'a turn up for the book'. At 18th and 19th century English race meetings when bets were placed, the punter's name and wager were written down in a notebook. Not unreasonably, this process was called 'making a book'. If a race was won by a horse that the 'bookmaker' had no record of in his book, he had a 'turn up' and kept all the wagered money. Among sporting men bookmakers are said to have a turn up when an unbacked horse wins.

So, 'a turn up for the book' translates as a stroke of good luck for the bookmakers.

LOL

OK Kirsten...... I had to look it up......" a turn up for the books" means "a surprising event"

Consider it yours, Jan! I'm so glad the red has finally been faved! It was looking like it wouldn't be, and I love it too. I was nearly forced to fave it myself! And I think you DO know feather art glass - just perhaps not by its name.

Here's an explanation:

I am not greedy today, Kirsten. But, I MUST have the upper left one. Please, oh pretty please! The lower right is a close second, but the red one - GORGEOUS!

Please forgive me for being stupid, but what is pulled feather art glass?

Well, colour me surprised, Barb! Not the blue? There's a turn up for the books. (what on earth does that saying mean anyway?) LOL. But I'm very glad you enjoyed it. :)))
