Happy New Year And A Look At Glass

All the best to you and yours in the coming New Year.


I found this piece at the secondhand store.  It looks like ones I've seen at Home Depot though I don't know what to call it.  It also reminded me of a clock my grandmother had on her wall when I was growing up.  My mom says that clock was from the 1960's.



The above pictures of glass I found at the secondhand stores These pieces have no markings, I'm not sure if it would be considered art glass.


The above glass vases are flea market finds. 


This signed paperweight was made by Selkirk Glass in Scotland, their paperweights are one of a kind as they are all handblown.  It was started by Peter Homes and Ron Hutchison in 1977.  Their paperweights can be found in museums around the world.

From The Family Collection


This beautiful old hall is in the community I grew up in.  It was built in 1919 and was built by Swedish immigrants. Inside they have beautiful murals, I believe they were scenes of them building the hall.  It's been so many years since I've  been in the hall so I don't know if the murals are still there.

    You made me wonder about that old Swedish wooden hall, i hope the murals are still there, it sounds like an important building for the local history.
