When it's cold and blustery out, staying put at home is a delight.
This past weekend, it was a joy to putter around the house, working on projects I never have time for otherwise.
One of these big "to do's" on the list was to take down all the cranberry glass in my collection and wash it.
Into the kitchen sink dish tub, I poured hot water, white vinegar and Dawn dish detergent.
Currently, I don't have a good way of displaying this beautiful collection so I've been keeping all the pieces on three different shelves in the living room.
After they were all nicely washed and sparkling clean, I lined three windows in the kitchen with a few pieces and three more windows in the living room.
The rest I placed on a clean, white emroidered cloth on top of the tv cabinet.
This is a very special collection to me because the very first piece of cranberry glass I got was from my beloved late mother.
She loved this pretty, deep pink glass, too!
Right below is one of the largest pieces in the collection.
So now, the pink cranberry glass is bringing to our home a touch of springtime in the dead of winter.
HAVE YOU SEEN CRANBERRY GLASS?
