 :hi: Hi Leni, yes, such a valuable resource - I'm just a beginner, but learn something everytime I log on to GMB.  Besides the excitement of wallowing in 'GLASS' this thread has been valuable in giving me ideas on how to display my glass and use shelving creatively.  :hiclp: It seems some people are naturally creative... (I'm thinking of Roses bird bath!) I'm going to have to think about regrouping some of my stuff  :ooh:

This is just a small part of my glass animal and bird collection.  They are in cabinets, so are relatively d*** free. Some of them are very small, so apologies if they don't show up as well as some of the lovely big glass vases you have been sharing here. :pb:

I have added a close-up of my kiwi collection  and have even taken you into my Loo!! :24: :wsh:

I just love this thread because it makes me feel normal - I thought I was the only one who had glass on every available surface - but I see I am only a novice - I don't have any in the loo yet!  My overflow stuff that won't fit in the cabinets is packed away in boxes and every few months I do a complete changeover.  - I see I really just have to buy more cabinets! The present arrangement is quite nice though - it is lovely to unpack something I haven't seen for a few months and fall in love with it all over again.

 When the kids finally leave home I have said I am going to take back the games room  - which is 7 metres by 4 metres - and line all the walls with shelves backlit to display my glass. (it will cost more than my whole collection is worth - might have to up my handywoman skills first. )

 Can't wait. ;D  At present it is stuffed full of about 22 guitars (at last count) , a drum kit, several mandolins,  ukeleles,  a sitar and all the associated paraphernalia of speakers, stands etc.  Don't know who the kids get their collectomania from.......

When I've dusted I'll post some pics..... maybe this weekend I'll dust .....

Ooooh!  Lovely collections, Rosie!  :hiclp:  And in the loo, too!  :D  I really have missed an opportunity there, I think  ;)   
Jackie:  Normal?  Did someone here say they feel normal?  :thud: :24: 

I waited until my kids left home before I began to fill my house with glass.  Then I went and got 4 cats, to 'replace' the kids  :spls: ::)

Hi Alfie's Dad, :hi: thanks, glad you like them.  Most of the Kiwi's are Hokitika and there is a Schroeders one, and I am still trying to find out who made the Neodymium one....I'll let you know when I do...OK?  This is only a little part of my collection by the way!!!! :thup:

This is about 1/2 of the glass that I have on display in my office at home. 
All of it is vaseline/uranium glass, but some pieces also have cranberry, blue or amethyst worked into the piece.
