What a fabulous piece that is Leni, and I'm not sure if you noticed it, but the wallpaper in that picture looks as though it is a reflection of the light passing through the vase!!  Amazing piece of photography. Thank you so much for sharing it.  :kissy:

Thanks Michelle and Leni.  :mrgreen:

Ooo!  Meegs!  I love your 'Blues'  :D  But please don't put the ballerina lady in front of the Schmetterling!  :o  The Schmetterling is my absolute favourite piece of Walther ever, and should be centre front, IMHO  ;D 

Rosie, the 'wallpaper' you mention is the watered 'silk' (probably nylon  ;) ) lining of the cabinet!  :)

John, I love your fruit bowl!  And I love the beautifully arranged pictures with the wood in the background to show off the 'tree ring' effect!   I feel quite embarrassed to confess that my fruit bowl isn't glass at all - it's actually an antique wooden bowl :spls: ::)  Of course I took a look at the rest of your Scandi album  ;)  You have some lovely pieces there!   :hiclp:   Reminded me that I have a small, mainly Scandi, display with a 'Green' theme  ;D

 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: The Scandi fruit bowl........... :cry: I want it!!

Oh I feel I have such rubbish in comparison to all your lovely glass....Meegs, your collection of blue glass is exquisite, and I adore the green Scandi collection Leni, and silk lined cabinets....wow!! It certainly does the trick with that lovely vase.

Hi there
for you John ive just added some new pics of my IOWSG blue and white swirl charger and globe vase pictures 22 to 31 https://picasaweb.google.com/112538457954992188877/IsleOfWight#5582055940768978002

Will also pictures the modern IOWSG pink and blue swirl vase when i dig it out.
I am going to try and photograph every piece i have and catalogue them all in the picasa album. I few years ago we lost everything on our old computer so i lost photo's of hundreds of pieces of glass that i have had (fortunitly i had backed up to disc all family photo's), we even lost our Turbo lister files
So from now on i am going to do the same as Leni and Take a picture of every new piece that enters the house no matter how small and add them to one of my web albums

three displays - mostly handblown or mould blown,  all textured in some way which is my favourite kind of glass  :) - the face box gets moved to wherever I fancy seeing him ;D

Oooh Robert, I like that textured piece in clear (or is it smoke?) in the middle of your last picture with the blue and brown stripes. What is that?
