Glass Treats …Floral Friday

Minor house redecorating means that dust settles everywhere, despite of taking precautions. Wall repair with drywall “mud” epoxy requires a little bit of sanding once it dries. That dust floats into every nook and cranny. (Yes, I wear air filtration to avoid inhaling any toxins.)

The presence of dust meant that it settled onto several glass vases that had been standing in the open. They received a detergent bath and polishing with a microfiber cloth. The containers were ready for some slightly unorthodox arrangements.

Orange blends into yellow art glass, aka Amberina glass by Viking Art Glass Company. A posy of warm-toned flowers is welcome in a February setting.

A cluster of pastel Peruvian lilies are nestled inside of a small Anchor-Hocking spherical cranberry glass flower bowl. The project is a lightweight counterpoint to the solid onyx ball.

A heaping helping of succulents are served up inside of a fancy vintage Fenton opalescent glass compote vase.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes 18th century French lyric poet, Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun, “The butterfly is a flying flower, the flower a tethered butterfly.”
