What a lovely lovely rose by Marianne for our Picture of the Week! Congrats and well done.
When Mitchy asked if I would host this week's challenge, my thoughts went to glass. Maybe it was because I love glass, especially antique glass, maybe it was because I had found a mysterious piece of sea glass just that day.
I am hoping you will have fun with this theme, and go with windows, bottles, vessels, vases, or, expanding a little, things that are smooth as glass, clear as glass, and so forth.
These are glass beads from the 1960's hung over the mirror of my vanity. Nowadays it is difficult to find glass beads, but it used to be my delight to go and select beads and spend pleasant hours making necklaces with a beading needle and silk thread.
Glass vases with gold adornment, and my little cat who does not disturb them.
A little piece of mystery. This picture reminds me of one Mitch took of ice, but it is my best attempt to get a photo of a piece of glass washed up on the beach. It is about 2 inches or 5 cm across at its widest. It is clear glass, with raised letters and numbers on a bowed-in (concave) surface. I pumped up the contrast so they are more visible. It seems to say AQUA, then possibly CO then IN. Beneath that a B (maybe) and 1641. Beneath that a partial logo I have searched the internet for and the number 59. Friends on Facebook suggested The Maine Antique Bottle and Glass Museum and they said they would take a look. For now it's a reminder of the mysteries of the sea and the durability of glass.
I look forward to your entries.
