So much to look at! Your mother is very talented.

I'm especially taken with the fairy candle holder. It looks like she's looking into a little camp fire or some kind of spirit light. It just looks like it all fits so well.

I esp love the fairy bottles and the butterfly jars.  Make sure you tell your mother that some random woman from craftster thinks she is very talented!  Smiley

Your mom is very talented and seems to have a knack for glass. The candy dishes and the champagne flutes with the "G" are my favorites. Rocked! Smiley

I forgot to ask in my last post, but what does she use as far as paint goes?

Actually kind of inspired by this for a swap I'm in.

she also explained to me the way she did the feary bottle, after insisting it was "top secret"
".Lrg clear beer bottle,decoupage image to back-(glue on to face of image & aplly outside back-like a backward lable)Stiffle paint all around except "window Area",make "bubble" edging around Window using q-tip dipped in frosty white paint"
