a continuing fascination with glass

Something nice happened about a month ago. Due to an hideous misunderstanding on my part, I thought I was going to have to pay taxes this year. Therefore, when I found that not only was I getting a refund, but it was a fair one, I decided to splurge on this lovely vase I found in a local shop. Yes, it's an indulgence, but a very pretty one.

Tuesday night I started farting around wi

th my good Canon Rebel for the first time in a while. This image is sepia toned, maybe not the best photo ever, but you get an idea of the vase. For some reason, Blogger won't let me add another photo to this. I'll try to do another post.

The shop also has some vases like this with illustration plates of birds from old books, coupled with curlicues and lovely old writing. I may indulge in another one, but for now, I'm happy to have this pretty maid for my own.

Please excuse the praline fur on the surface of the headboard-- I wasn't thinking of dusting before I snapped the photo, but having a more decent camera means that sometimes it picks up things one prefers it had not. Double-edged sword, that.

[vase is made of glass-- sorry! I didn't clarify that]

I like the vase and the sepia photo, but what is the vase made out of?

It's made of Glass, Vinogirl. If I'd been able to upload the other photo, you could have seen that. I'll try again later. :)
