Auction Fun


I got this interesting piece of glass at the
auction last week.  Not sure what it was originally,
but I thought it might make a neat terrarium!
For the time being, it's going to look pretty in my
kitchen, holding some dish towels.

  2. Hi Betsy - it's a pear-shaped 'terrarium' isn't it ... I was wondering about the book - can you tell us a little more ... thank you! It looks very interesting - love the artwork cover ... wonderful creative photo - cheers Hilary

    1. Pear? I think it looks more like a Chinese lantern. haha. I wonder if it had a lid at one time.

  3. So it's not going to be a tiny snake, a big one cannot fit in there. I actually seriously thought you would not say goldfish but a turtle ��... :-) and I wanted to warn you that they grow especially when they get a good care which they would get with you ... ok let's return from the fantasy world back ... I love the kitchen towels in it! happy Wednesday and happy women's day ��

  6. What an unusual, but beautiful piece of glass, Betsy. I can easily see it becoming a terraium, but it really does look lovely holding your dishtowels. Such a clever lady you are.

    1. I've wanted to try my hand at a terrarium for a while now. I think that would be a good spring project! We'll see...my project list is getting really long. lol...

  7. Yes, an usual shape, a plant terrarium would look neat, although your kitchen towels are colorful and handy !

  8. Love the curvy shape. Shells would look great although I know you already have those on display. Glass beads in water, etc. You know. I think the towels look great in it.
    Or... full of M&Ms! Very dangerous.

    1. haha....goodness....that would hold 20 lbs of M&M's. Yum. That would be the death of me right there on the counter with an open top. lol.

  10. You are finding some really good stuff
    All interesting and good ideas off the cuff
    I hope it went well with Marmy and Socks
    and the vet managed to do their 'inocs'.

      Marmy looks very leery of me now, though. ha.

  12. I like the terrarium idea. I used to have a nice terrarium shaped like a big bottle on its side, it held many plants. So sorry I sold it.
