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.

I recommend E Bay or a consignment shop for your collection.
I buy unusual - I use to say rare - but DC's newletters tell me no rare Blenko exist. So I buy unusual Blenko.
Many consigments shop will take your glass and pay as it sells.
Good Luck.
ps I continue to seek WV Birthday vases? Anyone want to sell?

Happy New Year to all! May God Bless you well this year. Hillary let me know that some were asking about me I am good. I have a new grandson who came a little early. Josiha Paxton born November 11, 2010. He is something. Very well loved. He now weighs 8lbs and something. Lilly thinks that he is hers, she has become the little Momma, told me she was boss over Leah and Josiha. Kate is home schooling Lilly who does not like to miss going to school on Friday's, where she gets to see her school friends. Leah is in that deciding if she needs to learn how to go to the pottie and trying to figure out how not to get her big girl panties wet. It is a big drama when she does. Kate is having trouble getting her to keep her close on, I love this stage in little girls, you never know what idea they will come up with next. Of course Leah is my blue eyed girl. She looks alot like her MOMMAW, has my personality, a happy into her own world child. She hugs my long braid of hair everytime I go to visit to only tell me she loves it.Told Santa when she went to see him that see wanted CHOCOLATE for Christmas! Lilly wanted a cell phone. Oh we have such fun when we are together. I got them sparkley pocketbooks that they carried to the Mall when we went to see Santa, of course they got noticed. I told Kate she needs to get them jobs modeling. Lilly likes to pose for pictures. I still have not gotten to my cousins house to get those Blenko vases, I go to Kate's where she keeps me right there with her. So life is good. I know that Kate will be coming to visit this way for her best friend's husband got a preaching job over in Kentucky, only they are living in a town close to Huntington. Glad to see that people are still collect Blenko! Had me worried there for awhile. I will let all know when I see that yard sale in Marmet that only had Blenko glass for sale last year. I am waiting myself. Well as always I have wrote a book. Could write more only enough for the day. My mind has been trying to figure out if we will go to One world order. A Dictator. Like a KING. What Blenko? Well praying that God Bless's everyone. Have a Good Day! Smile and laugh and enjoy yourself, for today. Roxie
