Here is what I am doing with Carnival & Depression Glass~

So if you remember a few weeks ago I received 56.6 pounds of red clay encrusted around broken carnival and depression glass.  It took me many days and hours to hand clean each piece which I sorted by color and then within each bags of colored glass I then sorted them to get smaller pieces.  (I know I have way too much time on my hands some say).  I googled what to do with the glass and couldn't find anything so there they sat in their warm fluffy baggies.

Two weeks ago I was given a beautiful old vintage framed print of flowers and then a wave of an idea hit me like a freight train headin' to China.  I am now using the framed print as my color palette and cutting the glass to match each petal, stem, flower and even the background as I have all the matching beautiful colors of Marigold, Cobalt blue, Green, Red, Purple, Amber, Clear and many others of glass.

Here's wishing all my peeps a fabulous sun shine day even though you might have a few clouds over head.   wOOf...wOOf...
