Played around in my glass house today

raforDecember 5, 2011

Did some easy decorating in the glass house today. It's still warm out even if not very sunny.

Since I have all this glass collected for totems, I decided to go get the red and green glassware and use it for Christmas decorations on the breezeway:

Used an old frame my daughter picked up on the sidewalk in Boston (it has a crack in the corner which is why the birdhouse is positioned there!!). Pulled out some ornies in the same turquoise and the birdhouse matches too.(Please ignore the over-painted windows!! I need to get out the razor blade.)

Some old green glassware I got stuck with when Robb kept bidding at an auction! Works for Christmas decorations:

Haven't found a place for this old door yet so it's in the glasshouse:

Wow, rafor! Great GJ in your glass house! Love the window w/ornies...worked out beautifully! Also that old door makes great garden art!!! Love it!

Your green & red glass sure looks good tucked away in that wood pc on your breezeway! & the Merry Christmas sign is cute in your glass house windows! TFS, rafor! Jeanne S.

I love the green depression glass! The frame works so well to hang ornies from & the old door adds lots of character to your glass house, looks like the floor is even polished, all you need is a couple of old fashioned lawn chairs with cushions & you could enjoy spending some time out there. It's lovely! Jan

Love all of your red and green glass! And I really like the Christmas balls hung in the picture frame. Someone had posted one similar that they had hung on the front door instead of a wreath.

Things are looking good in your glass house! TFS~

I love it all but my favorite has to be the old window with the ornaments. It is wonderful. I might just try something like that for a little Christmas decor in my bedroom. I love your glass house!

Love the glass house! That door would make a great lid for a cold frame...
