Happy New Year!

I have been traveling.

We left the cold and snowy Wisconsin winter and traveled to chilly Florida.
Florida weather was too chilly to swim in the ocean, but it wasn't too cold to walk barefoot in the sand.

I located glass where ever I went in Florida. Imagine that?

The above stained glass panels were in a pub that we visited for lunch. 
I really liked how the glass artist used two dimensional elements in the panels.

We stayed at a bed and breakfast and the above transom was above the B&B's main entry.

I really liked the small offset flower's color and simple design.

A short side trip brought us to a Chihuly exhibit
Pictures were forbidden of the actual exhibit, but there were a few objects outside to photograph.

This was an interesting display of glass billet.

One regret was that I wasn't able to find any good beach glass.

The trip was a good diversion from our current winter. We returned to 14 degree weather with nasty winds. Our family had never traveled during the holidays, but finding a warmer place for a time was okay this year. 

Now on to my next project . . .  Kiln-Pressed Glass.

I can't wait.
