La Casa del Vidrio

Blue & Green
Manolo, the boys & I went on a little road trip
to San Miguel de Allende this morning and visited La Casa del Vidrio.
It is a beautiful shop on Correo #11 that sells Mexican hand blown glass.
Manolo was looking for a glass vase to turn into a pendant lamp
for our house and he found a perfect chartreuse one!
I brought home one of those HUGE turquoise glass hearts :-)

I cherish my glass heart more than you could think. I look at it each day, specially before I turn off the light for the night.
Very happy M found the right vase, and that you found a gorgeous heart too. What an amazing place indeed. Thank you so much for sharing these photos & moment with us. oxoxo

I am "green glass" with envy! I adore handmade glass and can't wait to see the chartreuse pendant light. So glad you got a turquoise heart, it's definitely your color...I probably would not have been able to satisfy myself with just one item.

Dear Geninne, your pictures make us feel like buying a plane ticket and fly to Mexico right away. San Miguel seems such an amazing place. Since I started visiting your blog, I put it on my "places to visit one day" list. Thank you for sharing! Abraços

What is it about glass that captures our hearts? Just got back from a trip to Prague where I'd fallen in love with Bohemian glass. Gorgeous.

I love "glass lamps" too! I live near Venice and love "muran" glass and murrine! :) I hope you will show us the vase turned into a lamp! :D

I think that my favorite thing about glass is how it reflects when the light is shining through it.

Gennine, I wanted to add that I subscribe to your blog. Your blog always inspires and refreshes me. When I feel as though I might be pulled in too many directions, and e-mail from Gennine's always makes me smile. Then I pop over here and you remind me to be myself.

I LOVE the glass hearts. I would have bought one too. I just purchased recently 3 large blown glass wall vases in aqua, yellow and royal blue. They remind me of the hearts. All that glass is really fun to see. Thanks.
