Colored Glass for Spring



To get ready for spring (it WILL arrive eventually, right?), green and pink glass has been placed  in two of the kitchen windows and purple glass in the small window.


It's lovely in all kinds of light.



The late afternoon sunshine coming in is really beautiful.


 It's enchanting when the sun filters through the gorgeous colors of the glass.


 I love cranberry glass and  green glass, too, don't you?



It's funny but most of the pink glass displayed is comprised of actual glasses, including those used for martinis. 


We never ever drink martinis but since I saw the glasses at a yard sale, and knew they were cranberry glass, they came home with me. 



 There are big water goblets, too, that make you feel like a queen when you use them!


And there's a cool candle holder:








Soon the purple glass will come down. 







Do you think the purple, cranberry and green glass pieces look cheerful and welcoming? 



Oh, oh. Only one problem. After seeing these photos, washing windows is at the top of my "to do" list!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FRAGRANT FLOWER?

More and more I'm realizing that we just don't have "proper" windows in this house! It was not on my "list" of "must haves" when we were househunting 10 years ago. Believe me! It will be on my NEXT list. (Although I seldom wash the windows I DO have....hmmmmmmmm????? Maybe I should just be sure to have a few windows strategically located.....)

Your glassware look fabulous in all these pictures. I particularly like the last photo, Susan.

Lovely glassware and such a nice way to show it with the help of the sun!!

Your windows don't look so bad to me. I have some that can't be washed without a lot of effort and this year I just didn't even bother. During the summer, forget about it. The colored glass is so pretty and the green and cranberry go together nicely. When does the cobalt blue come out? :) Best wishes, Tammy

Susan said...

I had to laugh about washing windows...the same thing happened here after we had several days of bright sunshine and mine looked so dirty! I love the colored glass and you certainly have spring inside, XOXO

Nellie said...

Lovely colors to catch the sunlight, Susan!

There are some roses that have a really pleasing fragrance. Those would actually be nice to have around.:-)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Susan I always love it when you share your glass in the windows!! You have the most interesting and pretty colors. You know I love glass in my windows but don't have any cranberry glass. I'm looking though!! I'm ready for Spring flowers!
hugs,
Linda

My all-time favorite fragrance would have to be roses, and carnations are a very close second. These days, though, I've noticed that flowers from a florist shop sometimes lack the aroma that is supposed to accompany those lovely flowers. It's a real delight when one has an arrangement that actually smells the way it's supposed to! Your window arrangements are lovely, as always!

Dee said...

I love your glass collection....what a joy it must be to see the sun on them each day....your color choices are so great. :)

La Tea Dah said...

Such charming and beautiful glassware! And your windows are beautiful too. Don't worry, we can't see that they need washing from here.

The sunshine has been reminding me that mine need washed too. And the sunshine is making the weeds in my flower beds grow. All of a sudden there's so much work to be done!

Merlesworld said...

My sister really like coloured glass it does look lovely with the light behind it.
You can't beat the smell of roses but I do like the smell of the flowers of the gum trees after rain.
