Weekend Snapshot: From the Tree
My grandmother put the mouse on a Christmas package for me when I was a very little girl. The blue glass ornament in the upper right corner of that frame is a ball that a friend gave to me when we were in high school. Craig loved Christmas, and this was one of his grandmother's ornaments, so it has always been a special treasure. The star in the second frame is made from fused glass. I bought this from a glass artist in Washington, Connecticut, years ago when my great-uncle took me to see her studio. I wish I could remember her name. She created what she called weed-ash glass. She would place weeds and grasses between two pieces of glass and fuse them together to make plates, bowls, trivets, and the like.
