Through the last several years, I have collected
antique and vintage glass paperweights.
My criteria has been shape and price.
Price is always an over riding factor with me,
because I usually resell.
I like impact in a collection. One or two items doesn't do it for me, but 18 or 20 always feels like overload.
I like to hit a happy medium and that varies on how much I've gathered by the time I simply HAVE to get it out.
As noted in the previous post of my studio space, MUCH has been gathered... (I'm getting closer to cleaning it, really I am).
Here's a peek into one little drawer that has glass paperweights.
I'm going to be working a little magic on these over the next couple of weeks and look forward to sharing when I'm finished. (do not hold your breath,PLEASE)
There will be another event happening here on the farm in May and I'm already behind (as usual). These soon to be beautiful beauties will be a small part of the goods that are offered.
A very few are quite nice as is--I especially like
the orchid under glass. My photo doesn't do it justice.
Two more favorites
Here's a stash I will start working from.
(old paper and I have a "thing" for each other...)
I'm off to finish painting the powder room!
Hoping the final touches won't take too long.
(and once again---please do not hold breath)
p.s. I'd love to hear what you've got calling to you from your stash!
