Despite the look of it all I try to stick to locally made ( Stourbridge, Brierley & Birmingham )  ::) ::) ;D ;D

The theme is glass. No other required.  ;D

There are far worse addictions to have. I swapped swallowing the contents of bottles for collecting beautiful empty ones.  8)

Sue, you are so much stronger than I am. I love my red bottles to drink and my Archimede's (+ a couple of others) ones to admire the work and beauty.

I wasn't enjoying it any more. One is too many, because fifty are not enough. ;D
Not a problem I have with glass.

Keith certainly has got the bug i love the Hoarder instincts it is a wonderful life...
Sue your lounge looks like how i imagined it to look in the
factory shop in Mdina i love it and but it must have took ages to
amass a collection like that of one genre of glassware?
I have to say i love seeing other people with the affliction :)

There are bits of non Harris work there, but I have been at it for nearly 25 years now.
There is no cure.  8)
My "genre" is really Early Studio Glass, European end, but it did kind of spread...

There is some comfort in a support group like this. I suspect I would have slipped into an Archimedes Seguso delusional world without this site.

I spent an entire evening lost in wonder, gazing at two of my favourite pieces in a good light just last week.  ::)
I'm not nuts either Ardy.  ;D

Sue,  I went on the review of the glass circuit last week and forgot to check all the A.S. lamps in a bedroom cupboard.
I think the glass collection is affecting my brain, it can't be old age - can it?
