From My Stash 6-3-09

I realized that I neglected to do a stash post last week, with the sewing and other prep work for the weekend. So I'll be putting some extra pictures in this week's post.

First is what I've managed to collect (so far) of Cranberry glass. I just love the way the glass looks and I still don't know how I will display these pieces. I might just do a glass shop or fill a gorgeous China cabinet with them and install it in a beautiful dining room.

Here are a couple more paintings that were stashed in a different place from the ones I showed before. Both pieces were gifts from my Aunt Pat.

This gorgeous card was a gift from my dear friend, Marolyn. I believe it was for a birthday, but it could have been for Christmas. Marolyn is the same friend who gave me the rose bush in the Conservatory Bag... the plant that caused the room to come into being. ;-)I hope you've enjoyed the pictures. :-)

Great minis today! I especially like the cranberry glass, I had no idea it was available in the teensy version. Fun!

Hey! First, thank you for your kind comments on my blog. Secondly, I, too love cranberry glass and would love to collect some pieces along. With three chidlren and only a part-time job, gotta watch my expenses even in miniature! But one day . . . You know someone on one of the Yahoo Groups posted a pix of their collection of cranberry glass and it was stunning, a whole room tastefully decorated with cranberry glass as the main collectable featured. If I can find it again, I'll send you a link. It may have been Roomboxes or Miniature Collections, one of them.

Thank you ladies! I'm so glad you are enjoying the pictures on these "stash posts." It is more fun for me when I know you all are having fun too. :-)

Jodi if you click on the hamster near the tiny print int he top right corner of his cage, there is a link that will take you to a place to customize your own. :-)
