Cut Glass, A Work Of Art


Papa bought this gift for me from my Aunt Marylin for my B-day back in March . Marylin hadn’t finished it in time for my B-day but that’s  ok . It is beautiful and she put a lot of work into it ! Both my Aunt and my mom in law do cut glass . They can make anything . I have a butterfly lamp shade , A horse head and now this lovely horse and her foal made by them .


Their work is beautiful . They sell their work as well . Mom did a few different items for a client and it took her some time to finish them as this work can be tedious , but they enjoy doing it ! It is their hobby . 

I have other cut glass work hanging in my windows from other places ! I love how the sun captures them  all !


                                               Yes I need to clean my windows  lol !    


                                           Aunt Marylin made this horse for me at Christmas ! Pretty !


                  My mom in law made this for me last year for my B day ! Isn’t it lovely.


These two I bought from a store !


                            Mom bought this little candle holder for me as I love butterfly's !


I also have a frame made from cut glass with butterfly’s . They bring so much light and brightness into a room !

      There are so many different crafts out there .  There’s nothing like a hand made craft that's for sure !

               The sun is shining and the air is still cold but it is to warm up , I just hope the winds warm up as well .

                                    Until next time hope you all have a good day !

                                         Thanks For Popping By !

Just beautiful. I have several pieces that hang in windows as well. The sun (when it is out) shines through them so well. It's sunny today, but still a bit windy but the temperatures are on the rise.
I see you have a birthday in March, so do I ... all the great people are born that month :)

You are amassing a beautiful collection of stunning work. I love how the light comes through them into the house.

I am a big fan of stained glass. We have a big piece in our bathroom window instead of a blind.

These are very pretty stained glass. I have a few pieces that I treasure, including one we bought over 30 years ago, it's the Lone Cypress from Monterey. I can remember the lady's face that I bought it from, remember her house we visited to pick it up. I also have one of a sea otter that I bought from Friends of the Sea Otter in Monterey. Your post has brought back a lot of memories as I looked at all the pretty pieces you have.
