The Collectible Glass Show Part 2

Attending glass shows is a wonderful way to experience the huge variety of designs and patterns! There are so many more than the few examples you may find in antique stores or vintage booths. You may discover glass that captures your imagination or makes your heart sing. Come with me and enjoy Part 2 of this year's show!

On the Table: Tropical Birds!

I really enjoy setting tables. It lets me bring a fleeting bit of beauty or joy, sometimes of whimsy or laughter to family and friends. 

For this table I started with cheerful placemats and napkins I found last summer at $1.50 each. How could I have passed that up?!

A Table for Sunflowers

Sunflowers are blooming everywhere! In the fields, in the gardens, in the flower shops. And on my table!

Visiting the Annual Collectible Glass Show

I couldn't resist going to the 43rd Annual Collectible Glass Show held in Marietta, GA last weekend! It's a tablescaper's dream weekend — to see, touch and buy beautiful glassware in myriad colors and styles. You can find pieces from the early 1900's through the 1970's, some unique, some fairly common. Let's begin!
