Re: Are you a "collector"?

As silly as this may sound, coloured glass. Lamps, vases, figurines, punch bowls, whatever. If it has some kind of coloured glass - I prefer dark colours, but I'm not too picky - I collect it.

I would be the last one to call it silly seeing as how I have a pretty
good collection of antique and vintage porcelain, china and pottery.
I inherited my mom's and had my own. Part of that collection is some
depression glass. Cranberry and cobalt glass are my faves.

Haha, mine too! I love amber glass, too. Have a whole bunch of my grandmother's and I've slowly been collecting my over the years.

I also have a sweet spot for stained glass and tiffany lamps, as my parents collected those when I was a kid. Problem is that I haven't found many people who do the dark colours I remember growing up. The last few shows I went to was all pastel colours and while I admire the workmanship of the pieces the colour of the glass does nothing for me at all.

I'll have to take a pic of the lamp shade my girlfriend made. She also
makes garden stepping stones with embedded stained glass.

I got a big heavy "Swedish style" blob of amber glass abstract
ashtray from my mom. My X tried to throw it out....I think that was
the beginning of the end.....I threw her out instead!

If so, I don't blame you for getting rid of her!

My mother has a lamp with an amber glass base and shade. She has to watch it like a hawk any time I am over, as I have made it quite clear that I will steal it, haha.

Very close, Gone but a bit more "brownish". Or you could say "smokie
leaning toward amber.
