A collection of paperweights


Over the years I have collected paperweights and I think what started it all was my love for color and colored glass. I can remember when I was young how I would pick up a piece of broken colored glass on the ground and hold it up to the sunlight. I was always in awe of the beautiful stained glass windows in our church too. I get lost in the colors!


So how can I resist!
Such a beautiful little piece of art!

They are so pretty. They remind me of kaleidoscopes.

I know what you mean about glass, I love it too whether it's colored or clear... I like just touching it, I find it soothing.

What a beautiful collection of paperweights Donna! The perfect collection for such a wonderful artist ~ they really are "a piece of art " in themselves :-}
