      Lol Rose, it was a whale of a time putting this post together, I don't usually do collections but wanted to give these Moby's their due, very glad you liked them & thanks for the kind comment

      Thank you for the very nice words truthordare, I'm so pleased you enjoyed my whale assortment

      Very grateful for the love all

      These are really wonderful -- lovely collection!

      Gorgeous, Jenni! I'm breaching with delight.
    6. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Thanks Anik for the super compliment, I'm really glad you liked this whale collection & always grateful for your comments on my glass

      Ditto Karen, I'm super pleased you liked these glass whales, of all the art glass animals made here I think whales are the least appreciated, maybe because people are confused by the makers as they look similar so I hope this post helps a little in spotting the differences. Ha, thank you for the breach smile and kind compliment

      Many thanks everyone for the love

      I'm partial to the avacado green and bright green whales....nice!
    8. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      You do have the most unusual glass pieces Jenni! I love this lot:-)
    9. LaurenRedmond LaurenRedmond, 3 years ago
      Awww....they're so sweet- my favourites are the two blues because they're the colour closest to most whales! Certainly something to spout about...(Sorry!)
    10. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Thanks buckethead, I really like the different green whales a lot too, and I think my last photo could be a Christmas card next to the red one lol! Very glad you enjoyed & thanx for your nice comment

      Right Judy, I have a lot of my glass animals shelved & sometimes forget about them, these whales have been around for a couple yrs and I finally decided they deserved a post - sort of a last gasp of summer here in NY, so I made this post trio quite "fishy" - great comment as always, glad you liked them

      Lauren lol, thank you for a "spouting" good laugh tonite I could use one, waiting most of the day at home for a furniture delivery, not my idea of a fun weekend! I love the blue ones too and was able to catch a little sunlight on those, which I think highlights the color. Appreciate the compliment

      Grateful for the kind luv & support all
