Hand Blown Glassware



(sorry that these were not photographed on a white background or light grey, the wood tone is distracting from the delicacy of the glasses)

great photograph

unity in color

simplicity of the background

architectural quality of the flowers

hand blown vases

architectural flower frogs

It has been an interesting Lent spending less time on the internet and less time posting on this blog. It amazed me that there was so much in my folders that I was able to post things from my files for the majority of the time.

It was nice not feeling compelled to search for new things to post. I did miss not having new things to look at on my blog. I did miss not posting new things when I found them.

So what has changed, what will be different? Hopefully I will edit better and not post just to have a post. Only time will tell...

Reflections from the Saints

"The mind is purified by spiritual knowledge, the spiritual passions of the soul by charity, and the irregular appetites by abstinence and penance."

Reflections from the Saints

"Prayer is to our soul what rain is to the soil. Fertilize the soil ever so richly, it will remain barren unless fed by frequent rains."

– St. John Vianney
