For this week's MagpieMonday post I have several pieces of glassware. I am always hoping to find beautiful glass items when I go on my trips around boot sales and charity shops but rarely find anything that really takes my breath away. When I saw the following pieces I was immediately in love and snapped them up.
The beautiful vase in the centre of this photo is actually new (sorry, hope it still counts) I found it in one of my other regular haunts TK Maxx. It had a price tag of just £7 !! I couldn't believe it, its the most gorgeous piece of glassware, beautifully made and really heavy. I love it and can't wait to get some large white flowers to pop in it. The pretty glass bowl has a blue etched pattern on the front and back, I found two for 10p each in the charity shop. Possibly not very old, but really pretty. I have a few blue bottles like the one in this picture, I love them all in a line down the table with a single flower. Simple but elegant, I won this one off Ebay for 99p.
I am not sure at all whether this is a vase? or an ice cream sundae cup ? I don't think it is new as it is really heavy glass with a "old" frosted appearance. I really don't mind either way as its the most beautiful colour and matches perfectly with the taper candles I decided to store in it. It cost 50p from the chairity shop and all the candles were just 10p for the lot!
I was thrilled when I saw this bottle ! A bottle with a tap! ha! I love it. I knew straight away what I would use it for and it now sits on the side of the kitchen sink with washing up liquid in it ! (no dishwasher in this house) Not sure what its original use would be maybe Olive Oil ? It must be reasonable old looking at the tap and the thickness and quality of the glass but I could be wrong. Cost me £1 in charity shop.
Finally this week, this totally stunning, too die for pink glass clock in the art deco style (but obviously a modern clock as it has a battery). It was locked in a cabinet in the charity shop - where they put the posh stuff ! I paid £3 and I love! love! love! it. It sits on my bedside table, so pretty and gives me joy everyday just to look at it.
