Heart of glass

One of the things I look out for at markets is glass, which might have something to do with the way it glints prettily in the outdoor light.

This is just a selection of small things I've gathered, all practical, and the most expensive just $15 (the square Jones & Miller bottle on the left). I use the bottles as vases.

The latest acquisition is the old pub-regulation beer glass from the 1960s. Without even looking at what was written on the glass, The Husband pulled it off the kitchen shelf and poured beer into it on the weekend. I asked him why he'd chosen that one and he said it just looked like the perfect beer glass.

Proves good design passes the test of time.


  1. I love the old middy glass Vera, we have a couple too.

  2. I love old glass, we found an old (I think Victorian) medicine bottle in our garden recently.
