Collecting Blue Glass

I am a collector.  If three is a collection, then I have a ton of collections, and although I am not a minimalist, I never have all of my collections on display at once.  I collect pretty stuff AND rustic, junky stuff.

Today I am showcasing my collection of blue glass vases, mostly cobalt blue vases.

I like to corral my collections on trays or in wooden crates for display.  They are much easier to manage, and I also love the look.   I also really try to avoid the "museum" look that sometimes happens with collectibles.

I love blue!

This is my dining table that I keep small (without leaves) when I'm not entertaining.  Because it is situated in front of a picture window, photographing dining table vignettes is a little tricky.

I don't think I paid more than $10 for anything here and most were under $5 at garage sales and thrift shops.

  6. Carlene, there is something very regal about blue glass. I have a few pieces too, including drinking glasses and bowls. Thanks for sharing your collection.

  8. I have a blue glass collection too! Your vases are beautiful - I especially like the two in back - I have one but not both. I have a lovely Madonna blue glass bottle with a stopper in the top. That's my favorite!

  13. Love your collection...so pretty! My mom had the same piece like your tallest one when I was a little girl. My brother and sister got in a pillow fight with the pillows off of the sofa and broke the vase. Needless to say...my mom was not happy. They got in trouble and so did I for not telling her about the pillow fight that they were having. LOL...
