    It's been a looooong time since I last shared a picture, but I've been ill -a nice flu- and out of my place (and computer) for almost two weeks, plus I run out of fresh pictures to upload... anyway, I hope this picture will be worth it: I am on the January issue of the Finnish GLORIAN ANTIIKKI magazine as the weird Spaniard that collects Finnish glass... isn't it funny?

    2. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      Ooooo, you'll make me blush :$ LOL

      Not weird...very cool!

      Alejandro! Congratulations on this acknowledgement.
      Even better that it comes from the Finns themselves!
    5. AmberRose AmberRose, 10 years ago
      Austro you are totally cute!!! How wonderful that they wrote about you and your gorgeous collection. Well deserved. Can I have your autograph?
    6. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      Hahaha, you're all great! Thanks! Last week a woman from the facebook Finnish group I belong to told me that after showing the article to her husband he now understood her better about collecting glass and so on. And I really feel weird... I must have been some people's talking subject over lunch in Finland... that's truly weird!!!! :D
    7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 years ago
      Your collection has inspired them.
      The article helped him understand how Finnish glass is an international collecting topic.
      A job well done!
    8. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      Thanks vetraio! :) Now I need a Danish magazine to write another article on my Danish glass collection... LOL
    9. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 years ago
      How's your Danish? I can't find a translation of "opdrevet". I have a piece that I will post tomorrow that looks like a Per Lutken piece on Hardernet: "Lerform krukke, multifarvet, tæt marmor lerform opdrevet." It's not by Per, it's Maltese!
    10. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      My Danish is very very very basic... just like my Finnish. I've tried to teach myself boh languages because of my glass hobby. Does "up the drive" or "up driven" makes any sense talking about glass in English?

      Looking forward to seeing that piece already!!! :)
    11. AmberRose AmberRose, 10 years ago
      Austro, I agree with V. You have shown the Fins that their art is appreciated around the world. I think it is wonderful.
      Plus they are all jealous of your collection and your coolness.
    12. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      I'm totally blushing LOL
    13. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      AND THANKS!!!!
    14. AmberRose AmberRose, 10 years ago
      Cool cats don't blush, they just take it all in stride :)
    15. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 10 years ago
      Haha, thanks Bellin! But it was just a passing fame... who remembers me today? LOL
    16. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 9 years ago
      This is sooo cool.
    17. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      Thanks DrFluffy!!! :) I guess these were my fifteen seconds (or two pages) of glory :)
    18. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 9 years ago
      austrohungaro... I think it's an honor to have one's collection featured in a magazine. You have an amazing collection and I can see why you were selected.
    19. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      Well, I guess I was chosen because I am the weird Spaniard collecting Finnish glass!
