Pretty Colored Glass

From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love how these vases look in the window reflecting light. The first one to the far left was my grandmothers'. The light blue one I got for fifty cents at a flea market sale. It is crackled, delicate, and has the prettiest fluted spout.(picture below). The one with the peach roses is a turquoise color and a pretty shape, with nice curves and ridges that feel good to the hand. The pink hobnail I got for $1.00 at an antique sale in the mall years ago. It also has a pretty ruffled top. (picture below)

The pink and crystal beaded necklace belonged to my mother and I made the mother of pearl and pink bead necklace. It has a pendant etched with a bird on a branch.

My pink hobnail vase along with a pretty clear glass bottle with a ground glass stopper. I got it recently from a local antique store.

I hope you have a nice day. It is a little chilly here today but beautiful sunshine.

OH I do so love hobnail and especially that cranberry colour. Makes me want to collect some but I have so much junk around now. Still I just know it would find a home with me should I ever find some at a garage sale or thrift store. I do buy at antique shops but its much more fun when ya get a prize at a sale.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love to hear from you. ~Clara~
