Pink Bohemian glasses and Hubby's hand-made Tray

Enchanting glass-work (pink glasses)
When I was in my mid-30's (haha, long long time ago), I have been to Czech with my friend on a package tour.  We've been taken to a Bohemian Glass store.  Wow, I was enchanted by the beauty of the glass-work. While browsing, I wished the prices of the ones I wanted to buy were more affordable.  Well, these lovely pink glasses were irresistible and what was more, rather reasonable price. And then I started to worry, "what if they got broken".  However, the clerk vouched me for the tight and safe warping, lucky he was right. 
It may be hard to recognize, but my husband pointed out that they are all hand-printed. Too precious for me to use them, with all the wonderful memories I had.

Hand-made Cider Tray
After finished making Soba plates, my retired husband got down to making trays.
"Golden Ratio" with different sizes again. (chuckle)  
Well, glasses are proudly sitting on it☆☆☆

Orchid, Your glasses are lovely and you have managed to keep them from harm for many years it seems. Your husband is a very talented woodworker!

Thank you for the lovely post...

They truly are very pretty. Yet it is a shame to have them and not just take a sip from them.

Oh Orchid, your glasses are stunning! I love the photo with the one holding the pearls. How very elegant.

I apologize for being so late in my visit but my job and getting things ready for the wands has really backed me up. Thank you so much for your precious visits. It truly means so much to me.

Dearest Orchid,

What a treasure these handmade Bohemian glasses! So we both have been to the Czech Republic! Another thing in common...

Lots of love,

Mariette
