(These green glass pieces line a windowsill in our pantry.)
Happy St. Patrick's Day to anyone who has a drop of Irish blood running through their veins! Even though not Irish, I try to wear the color green on this day. Also, green glass is among my favorite and I have several pieces of that, too!
A dear friend in Arizona collects glass in several different shades.
She displays a particular color of glass according to the month. For instance, near Easter time, out come boxes filled with gorgeous amethyst colored glass. She places pieces on her fireplace mantel, windowsills, and throughout the living room.
When July draws near, red and cobalt blue glass gets displayed. Amber glass comes out in the fall.
She keeps all of her glass collections in boxes in a shed in her backyard. It's a lot of work hauling all those boxes out but seeing the very beautiful glass pieces sparkling in the light makes it all worthwhile.
Of course, she has to pack everything up and put it away when it comes time for a new color of glass!
I loved visiting this dear friend because she's such good company, but I also loved seeing what color glass collection she had up!
My favorite colors of glass include amber, cobalt blue, cranberry, and green. Turquoise would be beautiful to collect, as well as amethyst. Heck, a whole rainbow of glass would be nice. Of course, deep red would be perfect for Christmas time.
Ugh oh. Better taper the "wants" as one thing our house does not need is more collections. However, having glass in several shades would be fun! Sometimes the thought of having my own thrift shop to sell things in is very appealing!
Now doesn't the idea of collecting different colors of glass, to display on glass shelves in front of windows, make you want to hit the yard sales?
