Pink Ice, Nice color. Not a big fan of pink but this is good and good design too. I'd like to see how would it look in green or blue, similar ice designs??

Very nice. Looks like a perfume bottle. Is there a hole set? Would look good in a room full of flowers.Drive safe this weekend. Will see you and Blenko-Be on Monday. I hope they get the work done so we can get ready for the Holidays. Your Mom has her basket of fruit out and it looks great this year. She has added afew new pieces to her fruit and veggie basket. So you can show everyone her basket again Hillary. Sol, Hillary does the best she can. Maybe you need to get a camera and send us some photo's should you not like the ones that Hillary is sending and stop that complanning it will give you high blood pressure and it might make your teeth fall out. Stress is not good. Besides, is the time of the year to be good and nice or Santa will not come to visit you Sol. YES! I still beleive in Santa Claus, have four grandbabies. Sol, your Momma might like that for her bedroom or bathroom. All women like pink and delicate looking glass. From pass decorating I find pink looks good in a living room, it goes good with almost any color. Hillary has a trip this weekend like last weekend so all of you need to be nice. Maybe you three need to get together and take pictures for Hillary or Hay send us some picture's so Hillary does not have to work so hard while doing all these interviews for the next year of her life. Don't mean to sound mean but some of that anonymous blogger stuff must be wearing off on you all. Love ya Roxie

Thanks for the vote of confidence PJ. Actually, I think the blackened background (photoshop editing??) makes that pink ice decanter POP out at us.

I take as many bad photographs of glass as I do good ones. Glass is hard to photograph, especially those long decanters. They are a 4x6" nightmare. Sometimes I just take the stopper off and place it beside the decanter.

As for sending me the glass, wow, what a great idea. Bring it on! Maybe I could start a business. Some people get photographed with their pets or get pictures of their pets alone. Perhaps I could photograph people with their glass (or just their glass alone)! Laugh out Loud!

Have a great day everyone. In this difficult economy, being nice and brightening each other's days is something we can do for FREE!

We have received a number of emails about Feet and Hands.
I'll check on this, I think it was a one time rerun of a vintage item. Used to make the BLENKO MAN at the WV Msueum of Glass in Weston.
Anonymous - my computer and camera are not old enough to be vintage but they are old and limited in abilities.
Phani - regarding Pink, women love pink (not me) but I did buy my husband a pink shirt 20 years ago its still in the package. Men often do not like pink.
Roxie - write to say how your puppy is, I have 8 or so emails asking about the puppy.
