Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Heart of Glass Blog Needs You

We need your help - if you see a comment that shouldn't be here, you see a mis spelled word, a mistake, an error please email theblenkoproject@aol.com when you email include the date and or post in your email so we might make the correction or eliminate the comment.
While I attempt to filter every comment, on occassion something will slip by.
In January and February 2010 I'll be on my Operating Room rotation, my time will be very limited. Please send many photos and stories during this time.
Otherwise the blog will go down to 3 post per week.
Heart of Glass appreciates your comments, your photos, your stories.
New collectors often have little knowledge of the great 'vintage Blenko' when they see your Blenko, read your stories etc this increases their desire to collect and also aides the sale of new Blenko Glass. Thanks to the West Virginia, Virginia, Calif, Texas, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina and Ky Blenko Collectors we have photos of unique glass nearly each week.
Our goal is promote WV Glass. All West Virginia Glass. While
Blenko is in my neighborhood and is the glass I most often purchase, Heart of Glass Blog
wants to provide a place to share knowledge of all West Virginia Glassmakers and the art glass they made/make available.
WV Glass is a very narrow topic, specific set of information, yet our readership grows each month. Its my belief we have more new collectors than old - many more. Together we can make a difference.
Remember to BUY MADE IN THE USA - and to buy LOCAL whenever possible .

Saying Buy Made In USA
is racist isn't it? The promise of
photos and stories from other collectors bring me back frequently, a sense of community combined with envy, is this perverted behavior?

I think its mere advertising and I dont think there is anything 'racist' involved with it.

My Dad can't spell either and he also is one of the smartest men I know.
Get a portable spell check /syllabus and carry it with you, for computer use spell check always.
Other than your WV twang I see no other errors
Blenko ID errors we wouldn't be able to correct as we are new and look to the blog as our daily blenko guide.
