I'm still playing with pods and pods and pods, I just can't stop making them and trying different color combinations. Lovely Jean at Nortel sent me samples of a few new colors to try. The odd lots are so interesting but it's important not to fall too deeply in love with them, for sometimes they are never, ever made again and then I'm left pining hopelessly for some more of that weird olive green or obscure streaky brown! It's been stretchy and good to work with colors I don't usually play with. My Rubino d'Oro (beautiful cranberry pink glass) feels very neglected!
A box of juicy pods and one annoyed owl.
So and I sorted through several long term collections last week. She decided to sell a lot of antiques and memorabilia that she had acquired over the last 15 years or so. It was a big job but fun, and left us with extra space and a nice bit of cash. I spent a bit of time going through the accumulated vintage postcards...sometimes to get one military card she would end up with a lot of others which just all ended up in a box. Many were just pretty Victorian pieces, but there were a few 50s and 60s ones too. I thought these were particularly interesting.
