Carnivals and Such


I have wine glasses and coffee mugs that are cobalt blue with moons & stars.  I also have wine glasses that match my vase (which you probably can’t see) that are clear glass with swirls of blue. 


This is my collection of glass.  Well, minus a couple of things.  Pictures are not great.  I just didn’t have the patience for it today.   Most of this belonged to my mother.


The platter is absolutely beautiful.  Really, I should have taken everything outside and used my husbands camera.


My sister bought me the Hen Dish, which makes me laugh, and I love it.


She also bought me the candle holders, which I use.  Everything else resides in a small display cabinet.


I wish you could see the colors in this bowls.  Beautiful golds and peaches and oranges.


I bought the bell for my mom the year before she died.  I found it at an antique mall, and it still had the glassmakers sticker.  See the glass bluebird?  That actually came from my husband.  My mom died a few days before my anniversary and my husband had no clue what to do with me, and my grief.  I knew I was in trouble when the day after my mom died he said “cheer up”.  But, he did go and buy a strange assortment of presents for me.  All of them were things that had a weird connection with my mom as well.  He did it purely subconsciously.  Anyway, this bluebird has a tag on the bottom that says bluebird of happines.  I really do like it alot.
