Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Celebration Vase To BE SOLD AUG 23
















The Celebration Vase - Blenko Festival of GLASS will be sold on August 23rd
check out http://www.blenkoglass.com/ for details


Blenko was kind enough to send photos of it being made.
My advice is 1) download and print these photos 2) go to BLENKO very early so you will
be able to purchase one of the #150 Celebration Vases 3) Take your camera 4) take photos of your Celebration Vase and Mr. Blenko and the Bayless Team. You will have a complete set of photos - include yourself in the photo with your Celebration Vase and Design Team or Blenko
As they say on the Antique Roadshow - Documentation is everything! Also BLENKO photographs so beautifully - it just makes for great photos.

This is for Margie and Others who ask me about the people who comment.
I DO NOT have the addresses or phone numbers, nor do I KNOW the people who comment.
I do know Christy from Blenko, I have met Tim who is also Blenko Collector and blogger from Texas, BUT for the most part, I like YOU know these people only from their comments on the blog.
I am grateful for the comments, that you all read and comment.
So it you all are reading - write to say how you are and to catch Margie and others up.
We all have become very connected, and its normal I think to
be interested in the well being of others.
Margie, you are one sweet, thoughtful lady.

If you want to get to know me better, perhaps we should try to
attend a ballgame together, go to a movie, go to dinner, play around of golf, or just meet somewhere and hang out for a couple of hours and talk Blenko!
If we took a vote, the majority of bloggers would agree you should
get to know me.

I am well, I don't comment often but enjoy your comments. You frequently remind me of my own dida thus your remarks bring smiles to my face.
Your ability to care for the unknown and to care so for your glass impresses me.
