Museum of American Glass - Part 2 Beautiful Pinks

Last weekend we took a "one tank trip" and along the way stopped to visit a glass museum.

It was fascinating. The displays were beautiful.

I saved the prettiest pinks for my Pink Saturday post!

One of the most gorgeous lamps I have ever seen... and it would fit my Bella Rosa motif perfectly!

All together these created a stunning group...

Glass topped hatpins and this wonderfully beaded pin cushion. Sigh.

An all glass beaded antique purse. Would LOVE to have this in my collection. But it was perfect on display... note the pedestals and backgrounds were pink!

Beautiful bottles.... and just remember, all handblown. To create the swirl in the glass is a real talent!

These were so pretty and the colors so soft... lovely!
There were about 15,000 pieces of glass on display. If you are ever in New Jersey, I highly recommend it!
Now hop on over to Beverly's blog, for more pink things being shared for Pink Saturday!

I love the idea of a "One Tank Trip"!!! I'm with you..those glass pieces are wonderful. I was really drawn to the beaded purse and the hat pins.

Hope all is well with you....we're still in the clutches of winter. :(

Have a great weekend! L, Dana

Happy Pink Saturday Jillian Sweetie...
Oh my what a beautiful share again today. I love this museum and the pieces are so exquisite. Of course for me living here in Phoenix, in the desert, chances are slim I will ever get to New Jersey, so I am so thrilled you brought the museum to me. Yeahhhh.

I love that the pieces were displayed against pink, they sure popped didn't they? I love that little purse, as it was just precious. All the beadwork that had been done.

And that pin keep was delicious. I love seeing pin keeps, and look at the gorgeous glass hat pins. So pretty.

Loved the salt and pepper shaker that were cream with the lightly pinked on them. How pretty was that?

I love this One Tank Trip. How fun Jillian and thank you for taking me along the New Jersey road. I so enjoyed myself today.

Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

All of these are very pretty. They appear to be those things you just look at and do not touch. Nice seeing them tho.

Your are so right, that lamp is gorgeous. But, I have to say, so is everything else you are sharing with us today. I do love the hatpins and the cushion.
Happy Pink Saturday, Char
