Mdina Glass



Laurence and I collect Mdina Glass, here is a photo of shelves in our living room, all the blue/green glass is Mdina, although we have other colours as well. I dont know what Toby has done with all these photo's, he seems to have made our house look quite clean - the wonders of photoshop! anyway, Mdina Glass was started up by a guy from the Isle of Wight, see here: http://www.circaglass.co.uk/phdi/p2.nsf/supppages/circa?opendocument&part=5

We buy ours from flea markets and antique fairs, and once, we visited the factory where it is made, in Malta, but there was just TOO much to choose from! have a look here: http://www.mdinaglass.net/

Well, thats the 8th and last random thing about us, I'm looking forward to visiting the blogs of the people that we tag, when Toby and I get back from Hastings at the end of next week.

Bye for now!

Hmm, I'd like to have some of that lovely glass! If I ever come to your house you will have to search my bags before I leave....!

Wonderful way of doing the 8 things, you've got some marvellous collections there and that model of the house is just brillaint. Have fun in Hastings, no doubt you will return with something to add to at least one of the collections.

Thank you for a fascinating insight into your home and lives. :) Your house looks really unusual and nice.
I will post my 8 things just as soon as I can think of something interesting...do we need to take photos of our homes? I live in such a tiny place I don't actually have 8 views to show you see!

No Catherine, you dont have to take photos, and it doesnt have to be about your home, just 8 random facts about yourself, anything you like.

I bet dusting is a nightmare. Great look though.

Wow..what a lovely way to post 8 things. Thanks for sharing. I LOVE Toby's wardrobe and your glass collection...oh and that house model. In fact...everything.

Every time I wear Toby's necklace/bracelet I get admiring comments btw.

P.S. I don't do dusting either...well...maybe once every 2 months 8-)

A lovely collection. I have become interested after doing a website for a local shop Newsum Antiques. You might like the pieces he has for sale. Or he might like yours if you ever feel like getting rid of it!!
