Will do Vicki, we're heading out and about after my VA appt on Thursday hopefully we'll find some things. Didn't go anywhere last week for some reason. Every few days it was dropping into the 30s, too cold to get my seeds started. Another low in the 30s Wednesday, just can't win.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on March 10, 2014 at 5:06pm

Oh there ya are! So you are still getting the cold to? It's actually warming up, at least for two days into the low 40's - but then we drop back into the 20's...........sigh.

April first is usually the frost date here, but I always wait till after Memorial weekend, cuz we often get freezing rain/and or snow again!

Have fun on your trip, let us know if you find any treasures! :)

Comment by Chris Pollock on March 10, 2014 at 4:58pm

I'm here Vicki, haven't started it yet, the cold keeps slipping in on me. However looks like it's finally going to get nice and I can get started at least with my flowers. Going to wait on the tomatoes until we come back from Galveston the beginning of April. Going for 3 days at the end of the month.

WoW, Looks like a wonderful show Shirley - and I Love all those lamps! I'll bet most were sold to! They are hard to find these days!

Colin, wonderful Tribute to your Mum, that is very sweet, and she must have been quite a "hoot" herself, just like you! :)

I also loved your art work, especially the lady in black, she looks like Audrey Hepburn. I always thought she was one of the most beautiful actress's of her era!

Angela, Your granddaughter is a Doll! and I love the Easter Bonnet! Sad to hear about the mining accident though. We to have had many of those in the USA. Mostly in the South and PA hills.

Glad to hear Kyle's wife is doing well. I'm sure he's just working his tail  off trying to save up for their new baby!

Hiya Donna! Has anyone heard from Chris lately? I wonder how their spring garden is coming along?

Comment by Donna Cook on March 10, 2014 at 10:55am

Nice pictures Shirley, I love all the colored glass.  Thanks for posting them, it was fun to see it. 

Comment by Shirley Grundman on March 9, 2014 at 10:13pm

Hi Glass Hounds, yes the show was a great success.  And oh, so much eye candy.  Here are a few more pictures.

Comment by Angela Evans on March 9, 2014 at 3:25pm

Ohhh ! I love it all ...the lamps are fabulous and all that green glass I would have been in my element there. What a brilliant crowd of people, hope it was a great success the displays are lovely you all must have worked very hard.

Comment by Classy Glass Antiques on March 9, 2014 at 1:16pm

WOW Shirley, that is quite some show, and to think that I cannot see (at first glance) one single item produced in Europe or here in England. USA, produced some of the finest Art Deco lamps in my opinion. It must have taken you quite a while to set all of that up. I hope your sales do well for you, with all of those 'hungry customers' waiting to purchase. 

Comment by Shirley Grundman on March 9, 2014 at 9:43am

Day ONE done of the Glass & China Collectors Showcase.  Here are some pictures I took.  Will post more later.  Colin and Angela, check these lamps out.  The first picture is the line of shoppers waiting for me to open the door at 10 o'clock.  We start selling tickets at 9:30, so all these people have tickets and get to enter at 10 a.m.  It is a wonderful show.

Comment by Classy Glass Antiques on March 8, 2014 at 8:06pm

Yes... One needs ones own space, quiet solitude and to be locked away when trying to produce art... but other every-day-things prevent this from being...  Such is life... My art means nothing to me these days. It is secondary to my times spent with with my children Karis & Jared, and personal quiet moments are far and few between... lol I have numerous paintings on the go which I am currently trying my utmost to complete, but as we all know, there are never enough hours in a day to do as we would wish to.... If ONLY I could have been born a Hillbilly-Boy, life could have been such a breeze... lol. lol
