RE: first totems

Wow, lisa...your totems looks great! Looks like you've captured the beauty of totems...chosen about the most fav color of glass (on this forum)...red and cobalt blue. And I love it when glass birds are part of the totem....it's beautiful! Bet you love the rainchain, too! TFS!..& lookin' forward to more pics of your GJ (art)! Jeanne S.

Looks good. So glad someone has come up with a neat way of recycling old glass and making something prety and pleasing to the eye.

RE: first totems

Don't think GS junk, think works of art. Those are some really great pieces of glass and so well put together. I for one never get tired of looking at the totems everyone here creates. I like the bird too, I can never find any cheap enough. Great job!

Beautiful! I'm jealous though, because I've found little to no red glassware :-(

RE: first totems

Great job! I love the colored glass....I do have one suggestion so that you won't lose your blue totem....put a larger plate at the bottom unless you plan to put it on a post...that way it won't get knocked over in the wind!

RE: first totems

Both are great! I love the swirly martini glass in the blue totem. It really compliments the blue. And the little birdy just makes it look sweeter! Love the red too. Red glass pieces aren't that easy to find so you were lucky to have found as many as you have. Now I have to look for your rainchain. he-he TFS!

P.S. I agree, I never get tired of seeing totems!

Very nice....see Jeanne's post for MY thoughts, LOL, she forgot to sign my name with her's again.

Red is hard to find here, tho thankfully cobalt isn't.
Keep those pictures coming!
