The glass room has glass in it #1
« on: January 07, 2014, 02:35:20 PM »
Well as some of you know I have a new home including a glass room. 

The first picture is my Xmas present to myself - a magnificent Colin Heaney "sea" vase
The second is it with some of the room in the back ground.
The third is a very poor photo of the "Venetian/Murano" cabinet - I am afraid technology refuses to transfer from my iPad to my desktop despite all the others going peacefully.

I stress that thing have been stuck in willy nilly and there may be "blow ins" you can spot.

There are two other posts to follow
I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

How wonderful to finally get all your glass out and into the display cases - it must have been like having lots of new glass all over again :)
And exciting to get to display all the pieces you want together.

Love to see some pics of the room from a wide angle to see the effect.

p.s. you have a huge collection of glass  :o  I thought mine was bad.

Hello Ross,  how lovely to see all your glass out of their boxes and in their new home... You must have spent ages deciding where to put each piece.... I love it all and I wish you many happy hours sitting just admiring and enjoying it after all the hard work that has gone into this project... Perfect! 
What a great start to 2014 for you. :)

Hi Ross, I was unable to comment yesterday... well, not so much unable as unfit.

Your new Colin Heaney overshadowed everything else - I was overcome with a paroxysm of jealous envy, which has only abated slightly today, and then only because I haven't dared enlarge the pics again...

 :P :P :P You've spoiled my new year already!

;) not really, I'm actually delighted you have such a treasure. You deserve such treasures. They will be enjoyed and looked after and appreciated the way they ought to be. 8) )
Cheers, Sue (M)

How lovely Ross - great to see it coming together. I'll have to book an appointment to view          when I go to Melbourne next ;D

I'd love to see all my glass out at once - I never have!

When the kids leave home and I have space and time.........

Good to see the Cenedese doves in pride of place in the Murano cabinet too!  - I visited Murano and Cenedese last August - fabulous!
regards
