Blenko Glass Heart of Glass Blog - How Do You Display Your WV Glass?

In 1913 Elsie De Wolfe 'The House in Good Taste' wrote . . ."You will express yourself in your house whether you want to or not." In 2007 Jill Robinson wrote " A house is who you are, not who you ought to be." In 2006 Richard Blenko said " The glass collection reflects the collector."

What does your collection say about you?

Blenko - Heart of Glass Blog friend George sent photos from his home, his beautiful WV Glass collection prominently displayed.

Hilary I am new to glass, I collect clowns in photographs, paintings and now thaks to Don Osburn I will collect glass clowns. George
Note: Dave Osburn Glass is located in Milton, WV. Blenko Glass did a clown face , George put this on your wish list.

Happy Mother's Day:

To the rest of the world, in addition to West Virginia being the home of BLENKO Glass, and, at one time, over 400 glass factories, West Virginia is the home of Mother's Day.

Anna Jarvis was born a year after West Virginia became a state, in 1864 in Taylor County WV. She went on to found Mother's Day and today, her home is a museum for all to enjoy.

Happy Mother's Day
