Nicholson Blown Glass - Pumpkins

We recently attended the Pumpkins and Brew Pumpkin Event at Nicholson Blown Glass.
We bought a couple of pumpkins.  One for our friends, an orange one and a cream and gold one to add to our collection.

Rick and Janet’s dedication to glass blowing is evident in the excellent quality of their work. The emphasis in their small studio is on creativity and innovation. Each piece is a free-hand expression of the excitement and risk-taking found in an experimental glassblowing studio.

Rick  and Janet have ventured out into making lighting, sinks, statues, beautiful bowls, goblets and more. Their figurative sculptures, lighting sculptures and multiple piece ceiling installations are commissioned in many hotels and private residences all over the world.

Lots of pumpkins to choose from.  Different shape, sizes  and colors, even  leaves.

Gorgeous Point Break Wave bowls

Goblets, vases and more.
Their latest adventures is Shorebirds, Quail, and Equine. Go check them out!  They have some amazing pieces. Nicolson Blown Glass

Sorry once again, I did not have time to write any posts. or visit  blogs. I was completely wrapped up with helping my girlfriend with her annual Tea event.  The theme was  Give My Regards To Broadway.  This past week was crazy busy. I designed the invitations, created the centerpieces, tweaked the program, and then my girlfriend and I dressed the tables, chairs and decorated the room. The tea was yesterday.  It was a great success!   Here's a look at the invitation.  The colors were red, black and gold.

My brother came by for a couple of days this week, while on a layover.  My Mother joined us for one of the days to see my brother who lives in Southern California. I gave my Mother a perm and  fixed lunch for all of us.

On top of that, our friends had a dinner party last night and I baked a 4 layer  carrot cake for dessert Saturday morning before the tea. I am exhausted!  Enjoy the coming week!
