Hi Sue,
just been searching for your pieces by sam, saw them lurking in the third photo. In one of your earlier Mdina landscapes was that a large textured bottle in amethyst I can see at the back? :)

...
but no, no NO - to loo seats down, pleeeeeeeese!

"Loo seats down" indicates that the previous occupant has left something very nasty there that they couldn't shift.

I get the heebie jeebies when I see a lid down, I start to feel queasy, it's often enough to make me decide to try to find somewhere else to go, but if I can't, the lid is lifted with extreme trepidation and control of my gagging reflex is already activated.....shudder.

Ditto that.  Plus, modern thought is that putting the lid down spreads germs.

bad Fung Shui to leave it up!!

I can't help thinking it would be rather worse Fung Shui if I didn't get to plunk down in time!    :X: :24:

Absolutely loving this thread!  Thanks, everyone!

Steph do you mean the lady on the left of the screen?, Its a lamp she has a large globe shade on her knees.
To be honest i dont know anything about her, she was going for an absolute song in an auction and i just loved her so bid and got her for just £5, and she has been mine for about 5 years now and ive never even turned her on (no plug) but she is beautiful, very deco and im more into art nouveau.
Or do you mean the metal card tray at the front? unfortunitly both are repro's i cant afford the originals
Or do you mean the tall glass purple lady? she is Paul critchley, diamond isle sculptured glass

I've got a thing about heads & bodies, in glass I hasten you add.  Yes, it was the purple lady that grabbed me - so to speak.   :wsh: got me all excited, I shall have to go and do some research, that names a new one on me. 
 :hat: I'll take my dunces hat off one day and learn to download pics so I can show some of my glass.   :girlcheer (girl cheer, eeek) well, heres one for Sue, she got me interested in seeing what TKMax has on offer from time to time...
Got a few lovely pieces. so thanks Sue.  Also it's Sue who's responsible for our loo brush sitting in a large dusky pinkish, swagged Czech vase...sorry no flowers Rosie.  :rah: night all. steph. 

ps Anne I think we'd better meet up for that coffee soon!!!

I have to thank you for introducing me to Paul Critchley Glass Michelle,  I love his work, and John has said we will go over to the Isle of Wight to look at his studio....so I am saving up!!!

On one of your shelves you have an Alan Fox Fish from Western Australia....I think I might have bid for that with you....if I did, then sorry if I took you so high, if it is a different one, then I am so pleased you have one....I have a couple of his birds....you can see them here:

Isn't this thread fun....so much glass so many variations of collections....and we still haven't seen JP's animals yet....do you think he has any??????????

There's a challenge JP!!!! :vkg:

Yes, Greg - it's a big textured amethyst bottle - the big bottle to the left of it is even more exciting!

(Credit to Glassobsessed for the photographic skills  :thup: )

Keith, your half-open mushroom cap is just glorious! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Better pic of the Annette Meech mushroom here.

Thank you for your Image with the Signature, I did compare it with my one. It seems to me doses are still different, I might be wrong but I see also C. M but no Big Letter R. Perhaps he was in a rush for he’s Tea Time and made it fast so M+R closer on it. I stay tuned and will u let know.

Glasvasen, could it be Chris Lucas - CLucas?  Alum Bay glass?
Sue, what do you think?
