Amber Glass Equals Autumn


Around here, the time yellow-brownish amber glass is loved the most is autumn.

It's synonymous with that season.


The rest of the year, the amber glass is safely packed away in the attic.



But come fall, we traipse up to the attic, grab the plastic container labeled"Amber glass," and haul it down.


Then comes the fun ritual of washing each piece in warm, sudsy water and letting them all air dry.

Friend hummer gets attached to one of the pretty pieces.


This year, amber glass lines the bottom window sills only since we got shades for the kitchen windows just this summer!  


The top half of the sills that used to hold glass are now 
beneath the shades which are perfect for privacy.



Hope you enjoy this year's photos of amber glass.

Pretty. I think I've told you before my mom always had red amber glass items. I love the cobalt blue. But the amber certainly evokes a warm, cozy feeling. Have a good week.

Oh yes, the beautiful amber is golden like the autumn sun...warm and liquid like honey made in summer!

What does Amber remind me of ? That's easy to answer...my trip to Poland in 2001. Beautiful pieces of glass Susan.

I think of fall. So when you let them drip dry there are no spots? I think they are just beautiful!

Fancy glass full of beer

I think of the flecks in a cat's eyes when I think of the colour amber. It's a warm colour -- certain perfect for this time of year.

Wishing you a beautiful day,
Brenda

Hi Susan, such a pretty reminder of fall on the windowsills.

Your amber glass is just right for the Autumn season, Susan. And that little hummingbird makes it even more special.
