G is for....

I am sitting at my computer to type this (obviously), and to my side is a window.  Through this I can see our garden, with all the beautiful shades of summer flowers intermingled with green.  I love summer, especially being able to see the wide variety of colours that paint the view.  Thankfully the glass is clear or my view would be obstructed.  However, the artisans and artists of the Bbest team use glass in a variety of ways to colour our world.

Once I had started on my quest it didn't take me long to find the sorts of things I wanted to use to illustrate my point, and this first example shows perfectly the benefits of clear glass.  Made by Mike of gimmebeads this pendant is such fun.

`
If you like mushrooms you'll find this one listed here, but take a look at the other items in the shop, they are beautiful.
More glass/garden ideas from GlitznGlass.  If you look through her shop you will find several, but I rather like these tulip wine glasses.
`

 
`
Imagine sitting in your garden or yard sipping a delicious glass of wine.  In fact, I'll come and join you.....
For a touch of the real thing take a look at these coasters.  

 
`
Nonnie60 has sandwiched real wild flowers between layers of beautiful stained glass and antique window glass.  Perfect for your wine glass.
This attractive donut is from LaughingOtterJewelry.  More glass jewelry can be found in the shop, but I particularly like this one, and it reminds me of a tiny garden.

Take a closer look at the Glass Donut here

Are there fairies at the bottom of your garden?  I think there must be some in that of Chris1!  She has created this beautiful glass ACEO entitled Summer Fairy.  
`
 
Chris also notes that it could be used as a sun catcher.
Lastly, maybe you are looking for some inspiration for your garden.  How about a walk in the park?  StuStuSudion took one, and this is the result!
`

 
`
You can find it here, but don't forget to visit the shop too...
Have a lovely summer in your garden, even if you have to look at in through glass.....!
