SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT: GLASS


MOM IS KIND OF TICKLED AT TODAY'S WORD. She has been wanting to show you some things. 

Click here to see the list
GLASS:  
hard, brittle substance; anything made of glass

Mom and Dad have a lot of my other grandma I did not meet, Margie's glassware.  None of it is particularly expensive but
all of it is very beautiful and oh how Grandma Margie 
loved her glassware. Back in the early 20th century there
was a piece of glassware for nearly everything.  
I think one or two of them would make a nice
Diva dish. MOL

This hurricane lamp and these two pieces of
burgundy glassware were also Grandma Margie's
 I was kind of worried the hurricane lamp was going
to fall on me so I decided to sit very still for this 2nd photo op

  5. The glassware is all beautiful, our Mama can't take her eyes off that pretty cranberry bell. We would never be allowed to sit so close to the oil lamp. It's a good thing you sat very still.

  8. That hurricane lamp is just gorgeous. That is one old timey lamp. All of it is just amazing. We have to agree, that we would have been nervous having you so close to those items Madi, but you were such a good girl. And your Grandma had the same name as our Person. Her old friend call her Margie. So we know she was a good person. Take care.

  9. We don't understand why all your meals aren't served on that beautiful glassware. They look like perfect serving pieces for a diva such as yourself.

  12. Madi, your mom was very brave putting that beautiful hurricane lamp on the bed - it is lovely. We have a lot of old glass here and the Momster hopes her children will take good care of it in the years to come. It belonged to our Mom's Grandma, so it is REALLY old.

    Have a great weekend.

  23. I love looking at treasures like these. You are right, there was a dish for everything. I remember on holidays being fascinated by the tiny sweet pickles, served appropriately in a pickle dish.

  24. Oh Miss Madi that hurricane lamp is arooootiful but it sure looks very delicate. We totally agree that your mom should allow you to use one of those glass dishes - totally diva-worthy!

  25. The glassware is lovely. Up until my mum was about 16 they used hurricane lamps in the bedrooms but they were brass. They didn't have electric until the mid 60s because she lived in an isolated area. The rest of the cottage was lit by Tilley lamps and they cooked with LPG.
