UNUSUAL GLASS OBJECTS – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I love finding unusual and unique decorative items for my house. I am particularly drawn to things made of glass. Some of my glass objects d’art have been custom-made for me, and some I have found online and in all kinds of shops and craft shows.

Here are some of the more interesting uses of glass that I have in my home.

GLASS LAMPS – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I love glass and almost anything made from glass. So it’s no surprise that over the years, I’ve bought and inherited a number of glass lamps and chandeliers.

Here is my collection.

THROUGH THE GLASS A BIT DARKLY

A Photo a Week: Under Glass

I’m pretty sure Nancy really wanted a picture of something shot through glass, and I suppose I could have gone down the hall and shot a picture of my dolls in their glass cabinet. Of, for that matter, the glass cabinet in this room. Some of them are more accurately … through glass. Sunglasses. And a little amber bottle.

GLASS IN A MONOCHROME WORLD

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Glass


My world is monochrome. Snow falling at 2 to 5 inches per hour. Thunder and high winds and a dropping thermometer. How many inches have we gotten? I’d guess about eight, but all the drifting makes it difficult to tell. We shoveled. Three times or was it four? But you’d never guess. All for naught, drifted over by the new snow.180-medicine-wheel-snow-090217_027

Stained glass in front of glass and beyond that, snow.

This is the world through glass. Because I’m not going anywhere until the snow stops!
