Interesting Glass Finds

Today was our first day home alone again after two
fantastic weeks of having the Ranger here with us...
Neither of us felt like staying in so we took a drive and soon ended up in Greensboro
at Shoppes on Patterson. As I walked through the door, this interesting crystal
bowl immediately caught my eye. It's signed Schlam '03 and the engraving around
the square base states that it was presented to Gloria Glatt, in recognition of her
philanthropic leadership by the Albert Einstein School of Medicine at Yeshiva
University in New York at a gala on October 30, 2003. The staff at Shoppes on
Patterson told me they've been calling it, the brain bowl because of the design!
The frosted cut design around the bowl does kinda look like brains!
But don't worry, I won't be calling it the brain-bowl!
I'm not sure yet how I'll use or display it. Although I do think
it's stunning being lit from below using one of my light bases!
However, as pretty as a little light makes it, I think
my new bowl would be even better if it was filled...
With chocolate!
That's better!
Huh, Bing?
Bing's been supervising in this spot...
While the Christmas tree has been going up in the foyer. There's no longer any
room for the tree in the living room, which means it'll be interesting to see
how long my ornaments last now that there's no way to keep Bing away from it!
Before I go, I better show you another interesting piece of glass I found
yesterday at Antique Marketplace. I noticed it Wednesday when I
picked up the console and the hurricanes, but I forgot to grab it!
Fortunately, it was still there. What is
it? It's a vintage, 5,000ml lab beaker!
Kinda funky. Kinda odd... But kinda cool too!
It was filled with an old matchbook collection... But I tossed
that out because I see it filled with long, floppy tulips very soon!
