Vintage Glass: All the Colors of the Rainbow

I have been super busy for the last month it seems, and it will be another week or so before I can show you the tablescape I've been thinking of. So I thought I'd share the last of the photos I took at the glass show last fall. The 44th Vintage and Collectible Glass Show was hosted in October by the Peach State Depression Glass Club. Links to the previous posts are listed below.

I called this 'All the Colors of the Rainbow' to convey the variety of colors and patterns that can be found in vintage glassware, and to reveal the myriad shapes that glass can take in the hands of skilled artisans.

Let's begin!
 
I love the swirls of color!

A Tray Full of Bunnies

Hello and welcome! Today I'm joining Katherine from Katherine's Corner who has brought together a fabulous group of stylists for an Easter on a Tray blog tour. I'm sure you'll agree that this group has creative ideas for designing trays for entryways, coffee tables, kitchen islands and more!

A Field of Tulips on a Spring Table

One of the most thrilling things in the spring is the sight of bright green shoots rising from the earth in the garden. The first belong to the crocuses and daffodils, followed in short order by TULIPS! The buds open in a rainbow of colors and it's just spectacular!

Spring Colors in Vintage Glassware

Sunday's official start to Spring reminded me that I hadn't yet shared the next installment of vintage glassware from the 44th Vintage and Collectible Glass Show, hosted in October by the Peach State Depression Glass Club. It seemed appropriate to choose glassware in lovely bright greens that call to mind new leaves, and vivid yellows that are everywhere in garden daffodils. Enjoy!

An Elegant Home Office — The Reveal

The past two years have seen a lot of changes in our lives. One of them was a dual event — in January 2020, Greg retired from his position and set up his consultant business. For that he needed an office. Coincidentally, our daughter had just moved to another city to accept a paid internship and begin studying for a Master's degree. Thus a room that had been hers was available!

  
The next six months involved choosing a design theme, selecting paint colors and drapery fabric, and ordering furniture that was both business functional and appropriate for the style of the rest of our home.
