I would gladly give a home to any of the pieces in this thread - the collections are really fabulous.  Greg, are you willing to divulge what the red piece is on the very left of your 'studio' shelf?  It's absolutely gorgeous.
If not, just a country will do  ;D

Gorgeous new collection pics...  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'll have to sort out all my boxes and cupboards and get some more shelves organised now to be able to make pretty displays like these too!  :ooh:

Mod editing myself! Edited: to take the o/t bit out into a new topic along with Rosie's reply which has been moved to Cafe

That is beautiful Mr Vaseline Glass - Now I know exactly how my games room needs to look!  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

And Leni - I already have the cats - well 3 of them - just can't seem to nudge the kids out - perhaps when they get to their 30's they will leave.  But the cats are one reason I can't put glass on my window ledges as the cats always walk through them and sit on them to look outside. I'd be too scared of them knocking things off. Yes they are clumsy cats - rescued ones with various degrees of problems.....  Now where did I put that duster......

Mr Vaseline Glass - may I call you Dave?  I LOVE that goblet!  What an amazing piece :D  And I love your fern stands! They are just the sort of thing I need to fit in a small corner, now I haven't got room for any more full-size cabinets - run out of walls!  :24:

Jackie, I have glass all along my window sills, and the cats tiptoe through it and even sit in the larger bowls to look out!  The answer is Museum Gel! ;D  Or where the window sills are a bit sloping and the Museum Gel tends to 'creep', I use White-tac.  In fact, nearly everything in my house is stuck down with one or the other!   :24: 

Anne, am I safe from relegation to the cafe with this thread?  After all, cats and glass, and keeping the latter safe from the former, does seem to be a recurring theme here!  ::)   ;)

Hi M
The piece you refer to is a British piece of studio glass.

Greg, I love that red bit too  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: - pleeese, who made it? and I'm not sure whether the blue bit in the middle is one or two bits,
Is the iridescent bit Siddy Langley?
Is the white and black bit Sunderland?
Cheers, Sue (M)
