If You Like Colored Glass...

If you like colored glass this post may be to your liking.

It is time for Three or More Tuesday, with Tam, of The Gypsy's Corner. Thanks, Tam, for being our gracious host. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.

I started collecting cruets about 25 years ago. I have two small cabinets full. Most of the cruets are of colored glass, although I do have a shelf or two with some clear cruets.

Here are some of the ones that have found their way into my home. Getting half way decent pictures was hard...the backs of the cabinets are mirrored and some of the pictures needed the flash on. Sorry for the glare.





















Thank you for taking the time to stop by...now is the time to go visit The Gypsy's Corner to see what everyone else is up to.

Oh wow, Mimi! What an amazing grouping of cruets. I love all the colored glass, but then I saw the "all clear" grouping -- and I loved that, too. Wonderful.

have a terrific trip, and wish YOUR Howard a Happy Birthday from everyone here at That Old House!

My Great Grama used to have several cruets, I remember seeing them on her table, always present and containing vinegar!

What a beautiful collection! The colors are beautiful. The shapes gorgeous. They are wonderful. I also like that cat picture at the top of your blog. We had one that looked just like it. Her name was Moose. She was a good cat. I'm always reminded of her when I visit here. Glad to see you back at Junkblossoms. Happy New Year!

I've been wandering around your blog for a bit & I just HAD to tell you how much I ♥ your collection of cruets! Each one is so unique & I envy you all the hobnail ones, especially. My Mom loved hopnail!

I have a great collection of dust bunnies at my house....under every bed & behind every piece of furniture. LOL I like your collection better!
