happy to be blue


Happy to be blue, how happy these would be on a table filled with fresh flowers. Depression Glass, a tinted glassware was produced in the 1920's to the 40's and often was used in giveaways to persuade customers to purchase other items.

I have some cobalt blue champagne glasses that I love to use.

These lovelies, can be found here.
Bluebellbazaar on etsy.
What color glass makes you happy?

A favorite quote... "If you're going to be blue... be bright blue". Have used it in several paintings. I have some cobalt glass and I too love it. It always puts me in the pink. Love the collection of glass. Did you see the green shell dishes in EDDIE Ross' recent post? Lovely!

Oh dear I love all colors! Each color tickles one spot or another. I have at least one piece (more in some) of glass in red, carnival, jade, pink, and green glass.
Have a colorful day! xoxo

All colors make me happy! Except maybe gray - I see the appeal, but it just seems a little dreary.

So pretty. I love these. I don't have any blue glass in my home, but I am a huge fan of white milk glass. My collection has grown quite a bit. I can't wait to finalize my dining room and have a home for it.

I'm a bit partial to green. It's the color of the outdoors, it goes with everything and reminds me of life. Have you ever seen a plant look out of place in a room?

The depression glass is lovely.

I was just speaking to someone about the red Depression glass. I always prefer clear glasses as I like to see the colour of the liquid within. But a nice blue vase or vial on the window sill does a beautiful job of colouring the world a little happier.

All this blue makes me feel really content!

The blue makes me think of the ocean - I love it. I have been thinking of starting to look for amber colored glass...

Tara said...

I am with you, blue is it...but I also like red!

I do like blue a lot. But for the most part I'm a "glass purist" -- clear.

Melissa Lewis said...

Oh, those are gorgeous! I would kill for those:) You know I love my blues and greens!
