I Couldn't Resist It!

I am not sure what it is about pretty glass that attracts me, but it does. Maybe I just like shiny objects. ha!

I love beautiful glass ...from fine crystal to wonky hand blown glass. 

Last week I was in Tuesday Morning and saw this piece of glass. 

I am not sure if it is a bottle, a jar, or a vase. ha. Whatever you want to call it...it followed me home. 


I washed it and brought it into the "design studio." (i.e. the dining room)

The funny thing is...I thought my bottle was really dusty. I washed and washed...but still had these sparkles. When I put my bifocals to work investigating the issue, I discovered that the "sparkles" are actually tiny bubbles in the glass, like seed glass. 

I love seed glass!!



Here is a close up of the "sparkles." 

I love the irregular shape and clarity. 

I only paid a few dollars for this new treasure, but I can see using it in lots of places around the house, inside and out on the porch. 


In the store the glass looked like old Coca Cola bottle green, but in my house the glass became more blue. It could have been the store lighting. 
I like the blue better than the green.



I looked around the house for some silk stems to poke into my bottle and found these long green stems. 




I am thinking of making a table setting around my jar...so we shall see what I come up with for that.

Now...what do you think this is? 
A jar? A bottle? or a vase?  I have wanted to call it all three things during the typing of this post. 


I found three votives in my stash that just happen to go with my bottle. 

I love it when things match without trying. 

Have a great day my friends!
