Friday's Post: Amber Glass Goes with the Season



The rich, deep golden hues of amber glass go perfectly with fall.




It's like autumn leaves melted into glass, to look at and enjoy.




Bringing down my box of amber glass from the attic, unpacking and washing each piece in hot, sudsy water and letting every piece dry until it sparkles  is one of the most pleasant things to do each fall.





Admittedly, it's hard to pass-up adding to the collection if I see a piece of amber glass at a yard  sale or thrift shop during the year.


The glass shown in these photos is on three windowsills in the kitchen.

Amber jewelry is lovely, too, but that's a post for another day. 

DO YOU LIKE AMBER GLASS?

Your amber collection is beautiful. I bet it's almost like Christmas when you open the box each fall.

You certainly have a knack for displaying your collections.

Oh my is that glass beautiful! Wow! I love that color but don't own any. Maybe I will add some to my collection.

Yes, I DO like amber glass - but mostly I wish I had window sills like you to display "things" on!

You DO have such wonderful glass-ware, Susan.

Your collection of amber glass is beautiful. I do have one piece of amber glass that I always put out in the fall. The color is warm and mellow, just like early Autumn in New England.

The weekend looks to be quite nice, so you should have ample sunshine to lite up your display. Enjoy them both.

I love amber glass! Your collection is amazing! I have several pieces but not as many as you. Mine is out now but needs a little bath to make it sparkle!!
hugs,
