Glass

I have loved clear glass for a long time
There is just something about it that appeals to me
I was going through some files and came across some random photos I thought I would share with you
All of these pieces were thrifted and are vintage
Boopie glass, Sandwich pattern glass and a refrigerator dish

More Sandwich pattern glass!  This bird has a small hole in the top to hang in a window...I just love it!

I'm joining Mosaic Monday at
Little Red House
and 
Home and Garden Thursday at
A Delightsome Life

Hugs,

How did Boopie glass get its name?

You have the best collections Linda. That clear glass is pretty. I like clear too, that way we can see pretty candies in such in them.

I never knew that was called sandwich glass. And I even have a few pieces of it. The stuff you learn on blogs!

Mom Walds Place said...

Nice pieces and photos! Your little bird fits right in with your vintage glassware.

Lovely glass collection Linda. My oldest sister collects the Sandwich pattern. I tried to buy a set of Forest Green "Boopie" ice tea glasses off eBay. When they arrived they were broken. I got my money back of course but they broke because the seller wrapped them in newspaper only. :( So I figured I would only buy them if I could find them locally. Unfortunately the price for 4 ice tea glasses is through the roof now.

Did you know that Candlewick and Boopie are close in pattern. You should let your bloggy friends know how to tell the difference just in case a seller tries to sell a Boopie glass as a Candlewick and charge more than it's really worth.~Ames

Such beautiful glassware. My granny had a square glass container like that one that she'd put the homemade butter in.

What memories that sparked!

Have a brightly blessed day sweetie!!! :o)

Linda, I too, love the clear glass. Your items are beautiful. The sandwich glass is so classic.

While not clear, I have and enjoy my mother's Boopie stemware in the emerald green. I just love it.
Blessings, Ginger

I love vintage glass - I attended a Carnival Glass show a few years back - it was a rainbow of colorful beauty! Love the range in patterns - but, the clear glass is always a classic! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
Kathy
