I found a piece of hand painted china that was only half there. I was so fascinated by that one piece that I went digging every chance I could. Over the years found mostly broken glass and some whole bottles. My parents took us to the Corning Glass Museum one summer and that is when I morphed into a glass lover. Been collecting glass for about 30 years. I collect anything eclectic that I like and some that are just too nice to pass up. It is an addiction albeit a beautiful one. (Read more)

  31. So envious, I love the Gatsby Era. What an awesome tribute. Wish I could have been there.
  32. TallCakes, it is very hard to tell whether it is amber or a very deep pink. I do not like amber, but I love this plain looking vase. It definitely has a 20's feel to it. Thank you.

  44. I agree, and I wish I could have been a glass blower. To me it is one of the most amazing arts around!
  45. Lol, thanks for the explanation fhrjr2.
  46. Haha. My dad lived in Watkins Glen for awhile. Did your dad have the heat cranked high too?
