The DVD is set. Only for Blenko would we watch Rachel Ray at this office so I thought - but watched her this week and she is just as you all said cute and perky and a combinatin of Martha - Oprah and
a travel show.
My office staff approves.
Like the Blenko or other items for Valentines Day Get off the Sugar!

Ooooh I wish I had Cable now, Rachel Ray and Blenko all in one! Can't beat that :)

I'm wondering if anyone could help me with a piece I'm attempting to ID and Blenko/Not Blenko. It's an Amberina Pitcher with a Panel Optic and a Reeded handle. It measures about 8 1/2" tall and 9" in diameter at the widest point. It has a rough pontil on the bottom which is slightly concave.

Thanks for any light anyone can shed on it.

I hope Rachel-Ray shows us how to cook Frog today while she is showing us the Blenko glass. It would look nice all fried-up on a nice piece of Blenko. I hear it's good. Blenko glass would be a good way to serving dinner my frog says it is all in the presentation.

I think blenko stuff is cool. I always liked glass art and wanted to visit some glass musuems around the country. Glass frog looks really cool too. One of my friends (Bridgett) invited me to this blog and said good things about it. So, here I am. Good Work.
