When I was a kid I was always warned: 'Don't play with glass, you'll cut yourself!'
This 'rule' obviously didn't stick as I entered adulthood
because I have always had a fascination with glass.
Whether it's sea-glass or collecting these vintage glasses
that I have on glass shelves in the kitchen windows,
I'd have to say that my fascination with glass is beyond cure.
I am drawn to glass and it's qualities.....texture, weight, colour and function.
And since its composition is mostly silica (sand),
it is no wonder that I am so at home at the beach walking in the sand along the shoreline.
That dark object above and to the right is a piece of sea-glass
that I found last month. It is a very dense, smooth piece and is dark green
in colour. At first I thought it was a rock
but after lifting it up to the sun I could see the green light coming through.
These glasses usually catch the morning sunlight and splatter colour all over the kitchen.
I am constantly on the hunt for vintage glasses and haven't come across one in ages.
Maybe I am not the only one out there looking for them!
