 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: and not a black light in sight, Leni!
(but it's the same picture you've seen before - honest - I can't do any new big pictures.  >:D )
There's an image of a beauty very like your newest big candelabra in one of my Glass encyclopedias (Glass Source Book). I so-oooooo want one!
Cheers, Sue (M)

How I do enjoy looking at people's themed and not-so-themed glass displays. :)   Astrid, you had a really great idea, starting this thread!

By the way, I'm so pleased to hear I'm not the only person with a "make it mingle..." theme.  :usd:

This is so much fun seeing everyone's collections. I'll try and add some more of mine once I can get to them...  currently a lot are stowed in boxes and cupboards whilst my dearly beloved is having a good sort out of his stuff (so I've hidden mine for safety!!!)

Oh and Paul, the colour is *not* lilac - it's actually a sort of china blue - one of those fancy heritage colours but the camera decided it wanted to make it lilac-ier!

It's so inspiring, looking at everyone's collections like that. All very different pieces of glass, and all great if you put them together, wow. And did I spot a few Copier vases on the left end of your shelves, NKP? Very nice...

I can post one more bit. It's not a themed display at all, it's a storage solution I've come up with for all the glass I can't display. Bought one of those smaller Ikea hang closets, left out the back (it was sturdy enough) and put the whole thing on a window-sill upstairs behind my PC. I used to have curtains there, mostly drawn so I wouldn't have too much light behind the screen, but the glass does a much better job of filtering the light, and I can put a lot of vases there. By necessity, this one changes every month as I take pieces out to display, and put others back from the month before.

Hello all
You all have fantastic collections, is always interesting and exciting to look at these various shapes, colors and ages,
how you do it with the dusting and cleaning?.
Every visitor is survived by his fingerprints now get our visitor no slippers only white gloves. lol : O)

For space reasons, we have our Racks made self in order to take advantage of every square meter. When I have to go to ours basement I fell pain because I see hundreds of vases, packed in Boxes.

Greetings from Switzerland

Sergio
