More Garden Glass

Garden glass ornaments  are now my new favorite craft -----
and I bet you'll fall in love with them too.
Let me show you a few 'lessons' I learned along the way ....
Here's my table of cast off glass, just waiting for the right inspiration.

this one ends with a bowl so small birds and butterflies will have water

There are no limits to creativity ...
---saucers, stemware, bowls and lids--
let your imagination run wild

any combination of colors and shapes can work
Here's a pleasing combination of clear and textured glass--
made with vases, ashtrays, dessert dish, candle holder

and look at this elegant tower -
vase, saucer, mercury glass votive, candy dish,
candle holder and stray lid

--My last piece of advice is to work with a buddy,
an extra pair of hands can prevent a lot of casualties

Fortunately, this piece can be reconstructed
and we have learned a valuable lesson ...

'Trial and Error' --- the best teacher of ALL!
