no, no, no, please, do not spoil your glass with water and rotting dead vegetation inside it, do not detract from it's intrinsic beauty.

Flowers belong in the ground, outside.

well i can actually show some of mine as i dusted for the first time in a very long time (mainly coz im off work not very well so becoming very very bored!!), had a bit of a change round too.
New pictures are number 24 to 38 (and i now see how badly i cleaned the outer glass on the glass cabinet from pics 31/32 :pb:)
Pictures 36/37/38 are in what is known as the "holding zone"!! when i havent found room for them yet, or not sure what is happening to them or even what they are. There is also a garage full of this "holding zone glass" probably should be the twilight zone

Ahem!!! 

"The vase (pronounced /ˈvɑːz/, /ˈveɪs/, or /ˈveɪz/) is an open container, often used to hold cut flowers. It can be made from a number of materials including ceramics and glass. The vase is often decorated and thus used to extend the beauty of its contents."

Sue & Jomo99.......some of us like flowers  :cry: :cry:....it isn't a rule that you can't put them in vases, only sensible not to put them in some valuable ones.

Ohhh wow! Can someone send me a truckload of tissues please? Such gorgeous collections!  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I was just going to add a picture of a small collection but I hardly dare now:  :ooh:  but I will, just for interest!  Chance drinking glasses in this tiny collection - all Calypto pattern and I seem to have a large quantity of most of them!

Gold ones are good, Anne. No brandy balloons though? I think I've got some, if you're interested - and I think I've got the wirey box container for some - they're basketted up on top of wardrobes though.....

I do have the odd flower in the house Rosie. Very odd.  >:D
I grow insect eating plants (nepenthes and drosera) and a few succulents. My nepenthes put out two flowers last year, and the drosera looks as if it's going to flower for the second year running.

Then there's my lampwork glass orchid......
Cheers, Sue (M)

They are lovely Anne....small is beautiful.... :sun:

We had, (and used) a lot of Chance glass when I was a child....little dishes with lace-like patterns on them and bowls with lovely anemones in bright colours on them.  You have just rekindled a lot of childhood memories...thank you.
PS Do you want plain or patterned tissues!!?

Did you know the Anenome design was Michael Harris, Rosie?
He designed Anne's Calypto pattern too.

(we had horrid juice glasses when we were small - all covered in matthey crinkly stuff, very unpleasant to hold.)
