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.

Blenko Water Bottle & Other Handcrafted Cards

http://www.etsy.com/therenaissancewoman
Diane Weber of Sunny California - a Blenko Collector and an original member of the Blenko Collectors Society designs and crafts these hand made cards. They are often available at the Blenko Glass Gift Shop and available every day in Diane's Etsy Shop.
I triple matted a few of these - they hang on the wall near my collection of Blenko Glass.
You'll want one in each color. hjh





















Can you spot the 'not Blenko' card?

I’ve just listed a bunch of water-bottle cards in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/therenaissancewoman



I’ve dropped my price for these cards to $10 each, plus shipping. Any reflection in the photos is due to the plastic sleeve in which each card comes packaged.



Take care,



Diane

Happy New Year to all! I am a new Mommaw to a grandson, who came early on November 11,2010. I am good. Lilly and Leah now have a baby brother who they all are spoiling. Kate is back to running and going to the gym to loose that baby fat. LOL! I have not been doing anything with Blenko. Still have not made it to Charlestown to get my Blenko vases. When I go to Kate's she does not let me get to far away. A loving grandma means a break for her/or I can do those things that she was not able to do. I have had some good times that are pictures in my memory. Thanks to all who have taken the time to ask about me. How are all of you? WVU play Marshall tonite so go WVU. I am sick of snow and wet weather, not to mention the cold. The bathroom is almost to the point of decorating so I will be thinking of going down to Blenko to get something nice to put in there. I am thinking purple. Rog is tried of my all white only I like it. When you get over 50 you need all the light that you can get so that you do not have to put those glasses on to see.Hope everyone has been having fun doing their Blenko collecting. I am waiting for a yard sale in Marmet where last year they had tables of Blenko.Well got to go to work, God Bless everyone, which is something we need to do daily this old world is a mess. Smile and have a good day if you can do something good for yourself or do a good deed for someone who may need to smile too. Roxie

If you go to www.etsy.com, my shop can be found by looking for "therenaissancewoman" all one word, or search for Water Bottle Card. Also, I've converted the longer link to a smaller link:


This is a link
