Clear Glass, Blue Glass, and Carnival Glass

What can I say.... I love glass.  So for Brenda to give us the word glass to Ponder at BYG Adventures, my camera had a great time with items to share with you today.

My husband's grandmother and then his mother collected American Fostoria.  So we have a china cupboard with a number of settings of this beautiful glass.

When we had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Prague, the souvenir I brought home was this little leaded glass basket.

Sometimes, I have flowers filling the back of this lovely swan, and place it as a table centerpiece.  Or fruit is nice as well.  Behind the swan is a cut glass bowl.

I love cobalt blue, and this pitcher and glasses was given to me by my daughter from an antique shop.  The vase with the flowers holds some glass marbles from my father-in-law's collection.  I picked out all the blue and white ones.

And finally this carnival glass vase from my mother.  The little girl figurines are Anri's, gifts from my hubby.

The good news is that one of my daughters shares my love of glass, so she will probably be happy to find a place for these in her home someday.  What is your choice in glass?  Do you prefer the colored or clear? Any thoughts?

Have a great Friday, and a happy weekend.  This is County Fair weekend for us.
