    Here is a beautiful controlled bubble, Belfor crystal bud vase that I owned for a few days. I acquired this in exchange for helping an elderly neighbor pack up her belongings.
    I had placed it on the windowsill to admire the sun shining through it & it got knocked off & fell to the floor.

      AWWW so sorry, it fell! At least you have a picture :)
    2. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
      Yes the picture helps, it may one day enable me to find another one to replace it.
      All that work & I ended up with shards of glass & the satisfaction of helping out an old neighbor. :(
      Thanks for the love Jewels, Lee & southcop.

      Aww I know you are very neighborly! I have broken some nice stuff myself! I know all too well the feeling...:/
    4. southcop southcop, 5 years ago
      I know myself the feeling as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:-(
    5. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
      I think that if you collect glass that at some point you will end up in this state.
      My wife found me a poor quality replacement & I promptly put it safely in the china cabinet, go figure!!
    6. Jewels Jewels, 5 years ago
      Aww that's called "learnin' the hard way" been there! :)

      Thanks for the comment & the love Phil.
      The controlled bubbles in this piece were amazing, there are many similar ones out there but not of this quality!

      So! sorry walksoftly....not only was the breaking of the vase sad for you I would think!...but because it had a lovely memory that whent with it and that would have ment more to you...I bet.....:-/
    10. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
      So true Inky, I was ashamed to tell her what happened to it, as it had originally belonged to her mother.

      Oh no Bro :-( I agree I don't keep glassware because I would do same thing . I did drop one of my fragile dolls heads the other day and was sure it broke when it hit floor but by some lucky miracle no damage . I have a slag glass lamp of my grandmothers and I hate to clean it because always sure I will drop shade so I just leave my hands off it . I will sure watch for a like vase for you ! Merry Christmas to you and Sherry xoxo
    18. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
      I always appreciate you stopping by to share the love & your kind words Sis.
      I only keep glass insulators on the window sill now!
      Sounds like you got lucky on the doll!
      Merry Christmas to you and Doc xoxo

      Thanks for the love & comment Alan, I'm much more cautious with where I place glass now.
      We learn the hard way!

      Love this! Yes, I had some of these over the years - but now right now. See your vase had the same label as my little glass Bears do. Do not know how I missed this. I will let you know if I find one for you - My promise!
    30. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
      Thanks for the love & comments Rose.
      I would be a very happy guy if you ever find one of these!
    31. antiquerose antiquerose, 4 years ago
      @WALK -- umm, looking around the Net -- I found one Just like yours in Canada ( Ontario ) and with the label. It would be an ideal replacement but a bit pricey. Do you do Ebay at all? If so, tell your story and make an offer. Would not hurt. It *would* be the perfect replacement!! See it here:

      http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Belfor-Cobalt-Blue-Crystal-Czechoslovakia-8-Controlled-Bubble-Bud-Vase-Label-/251891132243?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item3aa5e1a753#ht_788wt_922

      Could not ask for something so close -- as it is almost perfect as the one you had with the label......
    32. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
      Hi Rose I just saw that a few minutes ago, it made me sick to think how much the piece that I broke was worth (or what someone thinks it's worth).
    33. antiquerose antiquerose, 4 years ago
      LOL......probably cuz of the label. I will keep my eyes open here for you in case I stumble upon one (at more of a discount) -- LOL.

      Never say never -- Fingers crossed (and eyes) LOL
    34. walksoftly walksoftly, 4 years ago
      I've found lot's of imitaters since, but none measure up to the quality of this piece.
      Fingers crossed (and eyes) LOL
    35. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 4 years ago
      I've been thinking about a little competition for a while and I think in light of all that's been going on this would be a good time. I don't want to give any details yet to keep it fair . And I do want EVERYONE to feel comfortable about joining in. I will post details and get it started tomorrow if no problems come up .
      Pass it on.

      I love the controlled bubble ones, the ones by pairpoint are good too. There are too many on ebay with just the bubbles not controlled but yet most people would not know a real controlled bubble paperweight or vase for that matter. Yours is a beautiful example. I find some of them hard to photograph also but yours look quite controlled in the photos.

      Thanks for the comments & kind words bladerunner.
      I would like to see how these quality pieces are made.
