I thought it only fitting, after my last post, to try my hand at the WWC that Tink at Pickled Beef hosts. After all, if I intend someday to fork over money for a digital camera, I had better get back into the practice of taking pictures. So with out further ado, I give you this weeks photos. The words were Stone & Glass.
Sorry, colour needs work as does getting close ups. The top right is a Tanzenite and the bottom right is a Sapphire, can't remember the other two, I think they are both Pink Tourmaline.
Jade, Labradorite and Fire Opals
This is a very cool glass paperweight that was gifted to me by one of my brothers. It is Kosta Boda and has the artists name etched on the bottom.
These too are Kosta Boda, hand made glass eggs that Mom & Dad picked up in Sweden.
These are three of the remaining seven (Sis at Bag Lady's Blather has the other four) salt bowls that belonged to our paternal grandmother. It is a mystery what happened to the eighth. I didn't put the other spoons in as they are silver and very tarnished.
This last is '70's (maybe '60's) and looks like carnival glass, but I am not sure. I don't know enough about glass to say and there are no markings on the bottom.
I really like the way the light and shadows picked up on this shot though. I had to smudge out the base of my monitor though.
So, there you have it, my very first entry into WWC. I hope they shots are not too disappointing.
