The Glass Spiders

These are hand blown spiders from a glass blowing store nearby. I hate spiders, and these are huge. So let's just say I won't be buying any.




                                       Now for some butterflies. That is so much better!

Hi Ginny

If I were a really evil mom, I would buy one of these and give it to my daughter. However, I am NOT a mean mommy.

Well, can honestly say they wouldn't be on my shopping list, but just like real spiders I find them interesting. Someone obviously took great pride in making them. I wonder how popular they are? Thanks for stopping by, George Eliot was a woman, one of the leading Victorian writers.

Hehehe. I have a spider that looks like those spiders. Well, I don't mind spiders. ;))

I don't have a problem with spiders. Maybe because of my love of Charlotte's Web. I wouldn't mind have one or two of them "crawling" around my house.

Best,
Bonnie

i love glass but not these. the b fly is ok but nothing i would want. the spider would creep me out but the creator is truly talented ...

Nancy Chan said...

No, thank you. No spiders please.

Tanya Breese said...

I will definitely NOT be shopping in that store.

Very colourful spiders,Ginny! But hope they are not real... :)

Gail said...

Beautiful art.

Tamago said...

Wow, they are beautiful! The glasses are very colorful. Both spiders and butterflies are pretty, but I prefer butterflies, too :-)

SweetMarie said...

I don't want any spiders in my home, not even pretty glass ones. LOL

Ginny, I'm afraid I just don't care for spiders...glass or not...:)JP

Ruth Hiebert said...

The butterflies are more to my liking as well,but I could probably handle a glass spider.

DawnTreader said...

Yikes, you find the weirdest things! I would not buy these either... :)

Patsy said...

Love the comments!

Rose said...

You find some of the neatest things! I am not a lover of spiders, but I sure like these. And love that first butterfly.

Filip and Kristel said...

They are also a bit too big for me.

Greetings,
Filip

Ann Thompson said...

quite clever. I doubt that I would ever buy something like that but if I had to choose I would rather have the butterfly than the spider

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Intricate work, but I'm with you- I sure wouldn't be decorating with something that makes my skin crawl, even if it is beautiful artwork. Just the idea!

photowannabe said...

Quite artistic but I'm not into spiders either. Hope you had a nice birthday.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Well, if I had to have a spider, this seems like a good one to have.

CatTales said...

I'm with you....I prefer the butterfly over the spider! Hope you will have a restful evening, Ginny.
