I have some serious affection for large glass pieces right now; bottles, jars, cloches - anyone else similarly affected....?

I have a thing for large glass cannisters...the more industrial, the better!

Oh! These are gorgeous - I LOVE the one with the bottles through the window. Yes, I also have a love for bottles and jars. Some of them are truly pieces of art. I saw the most beautiful gray blue bottles the other day at an antique store but they were way out of my price range! The prettiest one I found was laying next to the curb in our downtown area. I picked it up and carried it around all evening! :)
Thanks for all the pretty things you show us every day ~

Large glass objects....why, yes....I have a few myself. And they just add a bit of "light" -- mostly in my kitchen. Great images!

Funny you should mention it... I was just at my local tarjay and they had some lovely large green glass bottle lamps. Really cute, really reasonably priced. Check it out!

you have a real gift of tugging at my heart strings.
i love everything about all these photo's. the texture, the muted tones and the sense of history.
i have the same affliction...large glass pieces....

Certainly do - especially when made into a lamp.

Jane (aka the girl in the brick house) said...

Oh yes, I adore glass bottles too and have been eyeing some up on e-bay - the blue-green glass is the best!

Struggler said...

Yes, I'm slowly learning that one large bottle is worth 10 small ones!
The pics you found are so serene.

I needed cloches asap. I had to cut up a cake to put in a tupperware last night so that it wouldnt get stale.

On the flip side, how much more would i be eating if the cake was sitting out all day?

Yes I am! I am craving coloured glass again after a long puritan phase.. Have a store up the road that have three fantastic hand blown bottles in greens and blues - husky tones.. would look perfect.. only I can't buy anything with the move to Sweden coming up next year.. AAAAARRRGHHHH!

Will have to settle for your eye candy!

I definitely have a thing for large glass vessels of all types. The bigger the better and I really love the ones with a hint of amber or green. And you can do so much with cloches. Lovely images!

I am (more than) slightly obsessed with old demijohns--I can't seem to leave them behind whenever I find one. I wrote a post on them a while back and have been hooked ever since(funny how that works!) Now I'm at the point where I'm having to get very creative with ways to display them. Oh well, the heart wants what the heart wants....

Bonito said...

Im agree with you. I have also serous affection for bottles, jars and large glass pieces right now.

I have always had a thing for apothecary jars. I started a collection 40yrs ago and now they are back in vogue. I am loving the large bottles also, I have three on my armoire in my master bdrm. I smile everytime I spy them.
