Back from the delightfully cool air of Michigan to the mugglies of Indiana. Heat Index of 105 today - ugh. This is a grandkiddy weekend for me, so before they all descend, here are some Victorian sweeties I usually keep in stock!

Sculptural florals and bellflowers

After going to the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee in early June, I was inspired by Nolly Gelsinger to expand on my sculptural flower forms. That inspiration along with the purchase of a couple of Carlo Dona (Murano glass tool maker maestro) bell flower presses gave rises to the following neckpiece statement - along with sweet little bell flower earrings. I also discovered the joys of Carnelian opalino glass. Can't imagine why I neglected the opalilno glasses for so long; they are just perfect for flower petals! Enjoy my glass garden :-)

Long time no see!

Phew! I've been away from this blog for way too long. And since I never mastered the Dreamweaver program for my website, I have had my web addresses redirected to this blog. From now on, this will be my presence on the web :-) All of this is due to some wonderful ISLAGA friends, Lisa Atchison and Robin Koza, who helped me with all the technicalities - Thanks ladies :-) Just wanted to show a little of what I have been working on lately - raised florals. .
