Glass Art

(Artist: Sam Stang, Missouri)

 What do you get when you mix gorgeous art,  yummy food, great music,
a picturesque neighborhood and a perfect day?

The Plaza Art Fair!

(Artists: Jim and Renee Engebretson, Wisconsin)

 I was smitten by the glass pieces this year.  

As much as I may have wanted to plunk down $2000 to buy that bowl,
the ol' pocket book said "nope".


But these tweet birdies made it back to my house.

(See previous posts about the Plaza here and here.)


  1. Oh. My. Goodness! Gorgeous glass bowls. I've never seen anything like them. The tweets are pretty too.

  2. Those glass pieces are gorgeous!! I would have loved seeing them up close.

  3. This has to be the most beautiful bowl I have ever seen. It is exquisite! I don't often see something I really want but I would adore to own this. (It looks like you had a lovely day too.)

  4. Gayle what a gorgeous weekend to have it too. My oldest went and said it was wonderful. The glass work reminds me of Chihuly. We took the kids to see his art glass in the St. Louis botanic gardens a few years ago and it was magical. The birds are perfectly at home in your space...smiles...Renee

  5. Maravillosos trabajos en vidrio... 2000!!! un capital.
    Tus pajarillos son encantadores.
    Un abrazo

  6. Wonder who took that home? Would have been fun to be there. Love the birds!

  7. Those little birds are so sweet. I thought I wanted that big orange plate in the top photo but after your comment on the vase I decided that your birdie choice was much better!

  8. What a special art fair. Your glass birds are just gorgeous. All your pics are just beautiful.

  9. The glass work reminds me of looking through a kaleidoscope.

    We are having our own Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Read about it and see some of the entries. This is the third year for the fair. I/we have visited each year.

  14. Stunning glass, great shots & that blue sky!
    Wow, fab post!

  15. Beautiful glass pieces. That bowl is exquisite. I can imagine that took quite a while to make.
    Your birds are adorable.

  16. You had lovely weather for the art fair.
    Looks like fun.


  17. The glass pieces are just beautiful! Love the tweet birdies you brought back home :)

  18. The first picture is so GREAT, I could buy them all!!!! And yes the stove is my primary heat source. I love it but it's a lot of work.

  19. I love those glass birds - they are gorgeous! Where did you end up displaying them?

  20. The glass is absolutely beautiful,
    the light just skims off them.

    I love the two birdies you brought home with you.
    I am sure they will look great in your house.

    Have a good Sunday
