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.

THINK - Simon Blackburn

This weekend is a busy one for me, clinic until 5pm on Friday then drive to Charleston for a dinner with my family then to Beckley on Saturday afternoon for my classmates wedding, then on to Pittsburgh for my friend A's Birthday Celebration and BATMAN visitation. It is a rare weekend of 'Just Fun.'

I'll post photos of events and comment when I return on Monday, Blogger will auto publish until I return.

Simon Blackburn wrote THINK several years ago - its NEW to me, and a book that every person should read to understand and the key questions of philosophy, ranging from free will and morality to what we can really know about the world around us! If you have 'free time' I recommend this as good thoughtful stimulating reading
Photos today are from my Charleston visit. All are of BLENKO GLASS.
NOTE: Please notice the DOME on the Bird House is BLENKO!
The other 2 items are examples of Don LEMLEY"s STAIN GLASS CLASS - offered at BLENKO phone 304 743 9081 to enroll.

I saw the emerald or jade green topper in August. Your parents said a Wayne Husted floor vase, dog broke the vase but stopper was in excellent shape. Your Mom then attached it to the Bird House.
Recycled Blenko a new topic.
We enjoyed the garden tour. So many ideas I was overwhelmed.

Batman visitation?
This you need to explain.

Dottie: The Glass Garden is often a part of garden tours for various causes. Have you added Blenko to your garden?

Margie: My thoughts are Don Lemley would assist you in all ways. Phone if you can't make this he'll find something you can make.

Sol: Batman visitation, Adam West was in Pittsburg this weekend.

So which Batman?
Adman West is still my favorite, but then I am older than Adam.
