I'm not sure I would be shifting them, John. It looks pretty amazing to me.  ;D

There is a cat that visits and she tends to make herself at home, I am worried that she might knock things over so any displays are going to have to be 'cat safe'. Items will have to be out of jumping range and stuck down with museum gel.

My felines are pretty well behaved - they're just moggies and so far, I haven't had an adventurous one in combination with glass.
To discourage feline interest, I shoved a load of lemons amongst the bits of glass on the bottom and next up shelves. The smell was enough to make them mostly ignore it as a climbing frame.
But if it's near a window a cat might like to look out of, stick it all down firmly.
If they suddenly see something outside, they'll not pay a blind bit of attention to what they kick over on their way to get a better look.

Lit by a couple of strip lights, the top of these kitchen cabinets should be feline proof...

I like the ledge that sticks out a bit on the top there.  :)
I covered the surface of my cupboard tops with greaseproof paper before putting glass up on them, it helps stop them from getting stuck with kitchen grease. They still get dirty, but can be cleaned. It's just easier than trying to clean the flat surface.
I don't use the extractor fan. The noise frightens the cats too much and I don't like it either.

The tops of kitchen cupboards are wonderful places for displaying glass.  8)

Absolutely love that display John - the shapes and colours are perfect.
Are the strip lights electric? (secretly wondering how to strip light my long shelf ledge in the kitchen now)

Been a while putting these together, the 'Maltese' connection, bit more common than recent posts  ;D ;D

That is a lovely selection of Maltese glass Keith... did it take long to amass?

Thanks Rosie, it's Linda's collection more than mine, we've been adding to it for 5-6 years or more, I think,  ::) ;D ;D
