    Valuable collectible antique glass comes in all shapes sizes and colors

     

    Occasionally you hear stories about a person who bought a small glass jar at a garage sale for a nickel, took it home, cleaned it up and found someone to buy it for hundreds of dollars. While that is not an everyday occurrence, it does happen when you stumble onto a piece of collectible antique glass. To know collectible antique glass you must understand how glass was made in the days from which your collectors clamor. Blown glass was made by molten glass placed on the end of a glass tube and blown up like you blow up a balloon. As it was being blown, it was shaped by various tools and when complete it was allowed to cool. During the making of collectible antique glass bottles, a handle may be applied by pressing the molten glass shaped like the handle onto the jar once it started to cool. Occasionally this process resulted in a crack in the bottle, which does little to detract from the current value of a collectible antique glass. Some Defects Aid in an Aging Piece During the fashioning of blown glass, a tool called a pontil rod was used to hold the glass while it was fashioned into the desired shape. In the end it was simply snapped off and may be polished clear, but the evidence of the pontil mark should still be visible and gives a general idea of age and value of collectible antique glass. In later years glass objects were made of molded glass and many of those were counterfeits of original blown glass. To find modern molded glass masquerading as collectible antique glass there are a couple things to look for like the wear factor. Look at the bottom of the piece first to see if you can find the pontil rod scar and then look for wear marks. If there are marks where there shouldn’t be, it’s probably a fake. Another hint is small irregularities in the top of the piece, indicating spill over as if too much molten glass had been poured into the mold. This would be a sign of shoddy workmanship, as would too many bubbles in the glass. Although, even in quality blown glass a few bubbles may appear, but in the cheaper reproductions it won’t take long to find them. Perhaps your first step in buying collectible antique glass should be the purchase of a collectible antique glass magazine or book. It will usually identify the collection trends and help lead you on the right collectible path.

    Venus in aries march 12 april 5 2007

     

    Venus is the planet of beauty, love and compromise. This makes Venus the main planet of relationships. Most of our relationship desires revolve around things ruled by Venus. In many ways you can say simply that Venus is the planet of our desires. What do we really desire? Actually, we all desire the same thing ultimately, to be happy. Venus is the planet of worldly happiness. It is what makes the senses feel good -- what makes love feel good -- it is what makes God alive in us. Our first experiences with God are usually through beautiful experiences in nature or with other people, or some other uplifting and powerfully enjoyable experience. Of course there is also the connection to God that comes through difficulty. Yet while our mind is tormented with difficulty, we are not seeing God. Difficulties are often the catalyst that leads us to truth, and that which is beyond our smaller ego. Yet the moment of a God experience comes as a moment of deep surrender and love. This is the magic alchemy of Venus -- turning personal pleasure into divine love. In Vedic astrology the planets rule two signs. Usually one of those signs is what's called the mulatrikona sign. It is through this sign that the planet derives its worldly power. For Venus, the mulatrikona, is Libra -- the sign of compromise and choice. Through the sign of Libra we learn to value the desires and wishes of others equal to our own. This is exactly opposite the sign of Aries, where our own inspirations and individual drives take precedent. Ultimately, the more of our own individual desires we are willing to let go of, the more happiness we will have, in the less drained we will be in pursuit of it. This is simply because most of our suffering is due to our ego and our limited self projected onto our infinite nature. In Libra there is indecision about how everyone's needs can be met. This indecision is more intellectual in nature as Libra is an air sign. Air is related to discrimination and thinking -- not feeling (water), not action (fire), or form (Earth). The mulatrikona sign shows the origin of earthly power a planet expresses. Yet there is an even higher expression, an otherworldly one, shown by the exaltation sign. Venus is exalted in Pisces, the sign of mysticism and the cosmic mind. Venus had been exalted in Pisces for a month until today. This exalted Venus had given the promise of many renewed spiritual insights as well as increased love, devotion, art and appreciation for our self and others. Now that Venus has left Pisces, and entered Aries, we may expect a more selfish direction toward our desires. Also, we will tend to dissipate our vitality and energy in pursuit of those passions. Generally, when Venus is in fire signs passions are very high. The passionate nature of Venus is not one so given to her highest goal of compromise and fairness. Fire is the element of action -- it's direction is forward -- it's motivation is personal -- it leads to anger when frustrated. Air is the element of thinking -- it's direction is side to side -- it's motivation is social -- it leads to indecision when frustrated. Not only does the nature of fire signs disrupt Venus, but Venus disrupts the nature of Aries as well. Aries is ruled by Mars and shows the nature of personally inspired actions moving us forward in life. As was mentioned, Venus is not the planet of personal inspirations, is the planet of personal gratification -- they are different. Our fiery inspirations are oriented towards a long-term goal, aligned with our principles. Hopefully there is disciplined sacrifice and clarity involved. None of those things are important to Venus. She is not disciplined; she tends to be lazy. Venus is not interested in personal long-term motivations, she's interested in the present moment and other people primarily. Venus is not interested in our individual principles and sacrificing worldly happiness for them; she's interested in worldly happiness and adapting to the principles of others and creating harmony out of chaos if possible. Thus, for the next month we must be careful with our individual desires disrupting our personal, long-term goals -- and also we must watch our self willed motivated nature disrupting our relationships. This would be a good month to become disciplined about your relationship and implement practical strategies to improve things and courageously face some issues in your relationship. Especially for spiritual couples, doing Yoga or other types of sadhana together could be very powerful. As for your long-term goals, with Venus in Aries you can bring more of a personal element to them. Connect your personally inspired vision to the inspirations of others and see where you can compromise and be more inclusive. Become motivated and focused toward compromise and being inclusive.

         
    Video game consoles you are dying to have

     

    Do you love video games? Then don’t waste another minute—start saving up to purchase your favorite video game console. Video games can be a lot of fun for children and adults alike, and once your purchase a console for playing these videos games, you will find that it provides hours of entertainment. One of the most popular ways to play video games is on a PC, or personal computer. Actually, with this method of playing video games, you don’t need to purchase a typical video game console; you just need a PC, which many people have anyway. However, you will need to make sure that your PC is ready to play video games. You’ll need the appropriate amount of memory, bandwidth, access to the Internet, and graphics card. If you aren’t sure if your PC is ready for playing video games, check the back of the game’s package to see the recommended conditions or talk to a computer representative. If you don’t want to use your computer for playing video games, there are a number of consoles on the market. One of the oldest and largest video gaming companies is Nintendo. Nintendo started many years ago and has since evolved. They released the GameCube a few years ago to update their video gaming system in order to compete with the other two major names on the market, Xbox and PlayStation. However, the GameCube was not as popular as they would have liked, so more recently, they released the Wii, which uses blu ray technology, nunchuck controllers, and a Wii remote. Many people consider this to be a very advanced gaming system. PlayStation is another large video gaming company. Their major consoles are the PlayStation 2 (PS2) and PlayStation 3 (PS3). Some video games are only available for the PlayStation, so if you want a particular game, make sure you have purchased the correct console. Of course, your other major option is the Xbox. Xbox has a number of great video games, but the most major one that people play is Halo, which is a first person shooter game. Many people believe Halo to be superior to the first person shoot games available for PlayStation, although this subject is highly debatable. Whatever gaming system you choose to purchase, realize that video games themselves are not cheap if you choose to purchase new video games. However, many stores sell used games for less than half the price, so you can better spend your money on accessories for you gaming system, like wireless controllers and microphones. Remember that a video gaming system is an investment. It may be expensive at first, but it can provide hours of entertainment.

         
    Video game voices give life to the game

     

    Video games have evolved a lot since the first one climbed out of the primordial goo in 1958. The first was actually played on an oscilloscope. Years later, there was Pong and Asteroids. No characters, no talking. These days, however, players demand realism, and you can't have realism without video game voices, no matter what anyone tells you. When a character is hit, you can't expect him to just take it silently. Where's the fun in that? Whether you are the one being hit or doing the hitting, hearing that “Oomph!” right afterwards is satisfying. It makes you think that something's at stake. That's where video game voices come in. Then, of course, you have to have narrators as well. Between the fight scenes on a lot of games, you have a storyline, and someone has to explain it. Video game voices are about a lot more than just talking crap, although that is a fun part of the whole thing. Can you imagine Muhammad Ali without his famous lines? He would make a great video game character, because he is the kind of person that goes great with video game voices. Besides, video game voices add a touch of reality to the game. They do this by allowing the player to use more of his senses. We're not as in tune with the smells around us as we are to sights and sounds, which is why no one has yet invented a viable way to add smell to the experience, though it's probably coming. But there is something weird and unnatural about people who never say anything. You don't want people to think that about your characters, so give them video game voices. It will have a dramatic effect on them. If you use the right video game voices, they will add a lot of personality to your characters. Movie producers have understood the power of the voice for a long time, which is why we no longer watch silent films. It's much more natural to listen to speech than to read text. Voices stay with you a lot longer than text does. And if text does stay with someone, it's because it made them hear a voice. The right video game voices will work a lot like commercial jingles in your players' minds. This will give them a truly memorable experience and call them back to the game again and again.

         
    Video games

     

    Back when video games first came out, there was Atari, and it came with games like Pac Man, Galaga, Millipede, and more. These games weren’t very expensive, and many households, despite their income, bought them for their kids. Nowadays, there are numerous types of video games for several game systems. These modern game systems are a lot more expensive, making it difficult for every household to purchase them for their children. There is even a game system, the Nintendo Wii, which makes playing games feel like you’re actually on screen playing. If you are playing a bowling game on the brand-new Nintendo Wii, you actually roll a real bowling ball, and at the same time, you see yourself on the screen, actually playing. It’s a real technological advance! And it’s very fun and exciting for children as well as adults. There are many different games for these various game consoles, such as football, basketball, baseball, and a real favorite for many people, Nascar. In the Nascar game, you can setup your own car, by choosing different tracks, just like you’re actually on a real race track. You can adjust the track bar on the car and change tires, and then it’s like you’re actually racing for the Nextel Cup, in real life. The graphics on these games are unreal, and it’s just like watching a game or TV. You choose the team that you want, and play someone else. Also, you can customize your game, and that is fun, too, especially when you’re beating your opponent. There are also tournaments on these video games, especially the football and basketball ones. They will have up to a hundred people or more involved in these tournaments, and whoever wins first, second and third place wins prize money. There is also a show on ESPN that has actual tournaments, with the first prize being $100, 000. That certainly is a lot of money just to play a game on television. But there are so many people who practice frequently, just to be able to be part of such a tournament. They must figure out different defenses for their players, and the same for the offense. So, as you can say, video game playing is a billion dollar industry. And it’s obvious that they’re not just for kids, because what kid is going to be on ESPN? Not many, because most parents wouldn’t allow it.

         
    Video games and deals

     

    There are many ways that people have fun. They may go out to movies, comedy clubs, amusement parks, etc. Many people just want to stay home sometimes, or either they don’t have a babysitter, and have not choice, but either way, they still want to have some fun. One way to accomplish this is to possibly have some friends over for pizza and board games, cards, or something similar. The person looking to have a good time at home could also rent movies to watch with their family and friends, or buy a pay-per-view movie off cable. Some people rely on video games to keep themselves occupied, though. It allows the person to stay warm on a cold night, and have fun simultaneously. They can play video games with their kids, spouse, friends, or even by themselves. It doesn’t matter, as long as they have their favorite games and a comfortable seat, they are all set. There are many types of games available, which makes it difficult for some people to choose. There are several versions of XBOX, Play Station, Nintendo, among others. So how is a video game buff to choose? He is usually able to choose depending on which system is in his price range, as well which system offers all of his or her favorite games. If a person is a big Nascar fan and Nascar games are only available for XBOX or Play Station, then a person probably wouldn’t want to purchase a Nintendo. Some people aren’t picky about the type of game system that they have. All they want to do is play various games and they’re satisfied. This type of person is not hard to please, and would probably not require any of the most expensive systems, and would be just as happy with a Game Cube or Play Station 2. these no-so-picky people need to realize that they are settling for a cheaper system and it won’t provide them with all the cool, up-to-date graphics that the latest systems do. It doesn’t matter what types of games or system a person likes. As long as he or she is able to enjoy playing them, it will provide hours of entertainment for a person to do with their family and friends, and sometimes alone. There will be no need for them to go outside their home, looking for entertainment. The entertainment is right in the comfort of their home.

         
    Video games don t contribute to violence in real life they may actually reduce it

     

    Video games serve many purposes. They can be used as a form of entertainment. They can be used as a stress reducer or as a safer outlet for underlying aggression. Also, they can be used to increase hand and eye coordination. Video games are good for the brain. They are much better than sitting in front of a TV watching a sit Video games are good for young people because it gives them a sense of significance in the world. In the real world they have peer pressure, adult authority figures telling them what to do, and parents dictating their lives at home. Video games give kids a chance to take on the world, to solve a seeming serious problem, or to create something that would be unfeasible in real life. Video games does not affect the rate of violence in the real world. Video games, television shows, books, radio programs, movies, and magazines are a reflection of society. Video game companies are in the money making business. If people did not buy their violent games the video game companies would produce more family friendly titles. Video games serve as a pressure release on pent up frustration. This is not only the case for teens but for adult video game players as well. Perhaps if a disgruntled employee takes out his angst on characters on the TV screen instead of his real life colleagues then things could be improved. If instead of a teen joining a gang for a feeling of self respect, that teen could instead join in on a role player game where he can feel a sense of significance without having to resort to violence outside his house. When I play games it is more so for entertainment and exercising my cognitive realm. Most of the day I work in front of a computer, I have pictures on the wall and interaction with people but sometimes I want to get my senses really going through highly intense gaming experiences. With the new systems it is akin to being involved in a movie you are watching, with realism increasing in games each year. Recent video game systems are allowing people to exercise more often. The Nintendo Wii has a motion sensor controller which allows people to swing their arms as they are swinging a golf club or to punch and jab as in the Wii sports game. Exercise is a stress reducer. Video games are largely a stress reducer. Not adding violent games to the pack may only make the violence situation worse in the real world. Violence is a human issue, not a technological issue. Before there were video games there were comic books. Would a rational person say that comic books were a great contributer to violence in society? I would think not. Consider that if a disgruntled adult played a shooter game at home instead of taking a real gun out into the workforce. Imagine elderly adults playing video games, maintaining or enhancing their cognitive skills. Video games aren't just for kids any more. They are a universal form of entertainment.

         
    Vincent van gogh

     

    The Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh has produced some of the world’s most popular, most beloved and most expensive paintings. Despite his great success, he was also known as a tortured, lonely artist who many felt was mad or at least on the verge of insanity. It is a testament to his immense talent that today, a century after he has died, the world still remembers Vincent Van Gogh. Of course, we have to acknowledge the fact that not everyone who remembers Van Gogh does so entirely because of his art. People also remember Van Gogh because of the story that has been immortalized in songs about how he cut off his ear and committed suicide because his genius was not recognized during his time. But the history books reveal that this may not exactly be the case. While it is true that Van Gogh had bouts of madness, it is also true that he his work was greatly praised by his fellow artists and radical art critics just before his death. It seems that the story has intertwined both myth and reality. As an artist, Van Gogh was actually a late bloomer and he only spent about 10 years on his craft. Before becoming an artist, he was primarily an art dealer and a teacher in England as well as a preacher in Holland. At the outset, most of his work consisted of somber colors until he was influenced by Impressionism in Paris and his style quickly developed. In his 10 years as a painter, Van Gogh produced around 900 paintings and 1100 drawings. His most famous works were actually created during the last two years of his life. Records show that he was prolific during the last two months of his life, producing 90 paintings during that time. Contrary to popular belief, Van Gogh did not become an overnight sensation immediately following his death. In fact, his post-mortem fame was gradual, but was spurred tirelessly by his widowed sister-in-law who was devoted to promoting his artworks. Eventually, memorial exhibitions were mounted in Van Gogh’s honor in Brussels, Paris, The Hague and Antwerp. This was soon followed by hugely successful retrospectives in Paris (1901 and 1905), Amsterdam (1905), Cologne (1912), New York City (1913) and Berlin (1914).

         
    Vintage posters vs. contemporary art

     

    Every great work of art has two faces, one toward its own time and one toward the future, toward eternity ~Daniel Barenboim~ Any work of art is priceless. However, art, too, has many varieties and each variety has its own fascinating past and a hopeful present. Take for instance vintage poster and contemporary art. Both are varied form of art and have their own niche appreciators. However, both are quite unlike each other. Vintage poster as an art form has its roots in Paris, France. Jules Cheret is credited to have created the first color poster back in 1869. Later, other French artists too started creating posters and soon this art spread beyond Europe. But what are vintage posters. The International Vintage Poster Dealers Association defines vintage poster as “A vintage poster is an original poster created for a commercial client, to be placed in the public view to promote a product or service; sporting or entertainment events; political or social issues, travel & transportation, etc. A vintage poster has been produced in the time limited to the original project.” Thus, posters were originally created as a means of carrying promotional message to the common man. However, with the passage of time these posters became rare and ultimately are now referred as vintage posters. Contemporary art, on the other hand has been in existence for a very short time. Contemporary art began to take shape in the late 20th century and the early 21st century, at a time when abstract expressionism had started fading. Artists took to new style of art such as Dadaism, wherein the artists tried to capture absurdity and unpredictability in their creations. The other styles included pop art wherein the artists used common images to depict abstract relationships; op art wherein the artists created visual effects such as afterimages and trompe-l'oeil using colors and the hugely popular minimalism wherein they tried to project an object as itself and strip its expressive content by using flat colors etc. If we compare both vintage posters and contemporary art, then the latter definitely presents itself with more variety. However, the subjects covered by vintage posters are more common, in the sense, they relate to our every day life. For instance, you can get vintage poster on topics such as war and military, liquor and beverages, entertainment and travel. Most of the images displayed in the vintage poster are such that a common man can easily relate to them. However, those who do not have a sound understanding may find contemporary art a little difficult to understand. Thus, vintage posters and contemporary art are two very different forms of art. But as the saying goes ‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’ and so your preference is likely to be governed by your likes and dislikes.

         
    Vinyl record collecting alive and well

     

    According to a recent report from eBay, the online auction giant, they sell more than three million vinyl records each year. It is also reported that eBay users buy and sell six vinyl records every minute (or an average of one every ten seconds). It seems the vinyl record, just a few years ago an afterthought as an audio format, is alive and well. So what is all the fuss about? First and foremost, if you ask any record collector, it is the sound quality they love the most about vinyl. The music isn’t compressed into ones and zeros or “binary sound.” Then of course, there is the element of “collectibility,” people may buy vinyl as an investment, in hope that, over time, the records will appreciate in value. Furthermore, people collect vinyl because they may want a piece of their past, so nostalgia is also an important element for the record collector. People are also drawn to actually owning a physical product and may enjoy the ritual that is involved in listening to the records. And a new generation has discovered the special allure that vinyl records have, the limited editions, colored vinyl, picture discs, “audiophile” records (a 180-220 gram), the album cover artwork and the sound have all lured youngsters in the hobby of collecting vinyl records. But, there are more reasons people collect vinyl. Besides the aforementioned elements, it is also big business. The old vinyl records on the auction sites, as well as the hundreds of other vinyl related web sites, are not selling their collectible vinyl for rummage sale prices. In fact, at any given moment, there may be more than six thousand collectible Beatles’ albums for sale on eBay. Some have sold for thousands of dollars and it is reported that the album that is bought and sold the most in vinyl format is the Beatles’ “White Album.” But it is not only the Beatles that sell well and are highly collectible. Artists such as the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Madonna, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley and even newer artists like Nirvana, Radiohead and many more are all highly sought after. There is also a keen interest in “Northern Soul,” Motown records, old blues recordings as well as jazz, punk and indie vinyl records. Furthermore, recording artists themselves are reported to own vast and eclectic record collections. Just as creating music is their passion, finding rare and collectible vinyl is sometimes just as important. It is reported that John Lennon was an avid collector of all the Beatles’ bootlegs he could find. Peter Buck, of the rock band R. E.M. is an avid collector as well and there is a long list of musicians who get the same thrill as all collectors get when they find a specific vinyl record at an estate sale that may have eluded them for years. However, it is not just the garage sales, rummage sales, estate sales, record conventions that carry collectible vinyl. The online community has responded as well, and besides the auction sites, there are literally hundreds of web sites that sell vinyl exclusively, in any musical genre that a person may have an interest in. People also collect vinyl for the album cover art or the 45-rpm record sleeve and some may be more valuable than the vinyl record that they hold. There are many businesses that frame these marvelous pieces of art and audio history for display and preservation. So just as there has been a resurgence in the sale and visibility of vinyl records, along with this is an increase in the hobby of vinyl record collecting and album cover art. This hobby is as old as the format itself, and a wonderful hobby that will continue to thrill its participants for decades to come.

         
    Vinyl records a different perspective

     

    As we continue to see the sales of CDs fall, it is obvious that the distribution channels of music are changing. But there is no disputing that digital downloads are the new “norm” for many people to acquire their music, be it one ninety-nine cent download or an entire album. As I ponder these changes, I still think that the vinyl record, as prehistoric as it is, is gaining popularity as well as making new fans and believers that this is the best audio format that can be heard. As a vinyl lover, I am pretty set in my ways; no one has to convince me of the staying power and musical greatness of the vinyl record. So I was thrilled when I had a chance to interview a young man who shares the same views as I do. I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with a nineteen-year old vinyl lover from Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada named Steve Robertson; who was gracious enough to share his thoughts and views about this old, yet treasured format. What follows is a short discussion with Steve as he shared his passion and love for vinyl records. I asked Steve what drew him to vinyl, why does he prefer this audio format? “Vinyl just sounds so much better; it has a unique sound that can’t be duplicated. There is a feeling of satisfaction when actually holding a physical product. And the cover art, not only from the past, but from new artists, is another reason I prefer vinyl records over any other format. I also get a sense of satisfaction in knowing that when I buy an artist’s work on vinyl, that I am supporting the musicians who release it, it just isn’t another free download,” explained Steve. I asked Steve how long he has listened to vinyl and about what format his friends prefer. “I have been into vinyl for several years now and vinyl is huge in British Columbia and most of my friends prefer it as well. We both like the clear sound and experience you get when playing a record. And we are interested in DJ-ing, so it fits right in. Last year I purchased a pair of Stanton turntables that have certainly helped me in my DJ-ing efforts and I plan on upgrading very soon to take it to the next level. I love the control that I have playing the music that people want to hear. The goal of a DJ is to take two different songs and blend them together in a smooth seamless way without the crowd knowing. Taking elements of one record and blending them into the other, you can then skillfully mix out the first song until it is just the new track playing. It’s like creating a new song and new music in a way. You make sure to keep up a steady stream, a continuous flow of ups and downs, it’s like telling a story, you want to keep people intrigued and interested in the music,” said Steve. “I really think that vinyl is coming back, it sure is in our area. If my friends and I had to pick, records would be our choice and the best option to hear our music. But, they are harder to acquire, our nearest vinyl shop is an hour and a half away, so we buy most of our vinyl online.” I asked Steve about his vinyl record collection and wanted to hear more details about his passion for D J-ing. “To the first part of your question, I would say that I have over three hundred records, mostly classic rock like Zeppelin or Heart. But I have about seventy-five records that would fall into the electronic dance genre. That is mostly what I play when I DJ because that is what the crowd I play for wants to hear. When you’re mixing records, the control you have over the sound and the way you can manipulate the music is just like playing an instrument. You can blend and put effects on the music using your mixer or you can do some hands on scratching and add your own unique sound to it. As far as scratching goes, it’s a whole new level of DJ’ing because, in a way you are creating a sound that has never been heard before, it’s almost like live production,” explained Steve. It was certainly refreshing to listen to Steve speak about his love for vinyl records. His enthusiasm for the format was clearly evident and especially welcome to me, a vinyl purist. And we both agreed that whatever musical genre it is that you enjoy, it certainly sounds the best emanating from a vinyl record. And that is a perspective that will help the vinyl record survive, if not thrive. I want to personally thank Steve for his cooperation and candor in regards to our discussion about vinyl records. It is nice to hear someone from a different generation, not only passionate about the music that he listens to, but about the audio format that he chooses to listen to his music.

    Visiting a glassware studio

     

    We’ve all heard of going to an art studio where artists display their pieces and offer them for sale. A glassware studio operates in much the same way – but on a larger scale; rows and rows of glassware – different designs, different years, and different countries of origin – on display for your consideration. It can be a dizzying experience; wandering around amidst glass of all colors, as the light reflects off their beauty. It can be an overwhelming experience to decide between all the pieces. But depending on your reason for visiting, there are ways in which to conduct your search. First and foremost, some of the most popular visitors to a glassware studio are a newly engaged couple. For many couples who are planning their weddings, registering for gifts is part of the process as they make a myriad of choices for their home. Guests to the wedding – and wedding related events such as bridal showers – can access your gift registry and purchase you something that you have chosen to be in accordance with your taste. A glassware studio offers the opportunity to choose drinking glasses of all varieties – wine glasses (both red and white), champagne flutes, water glasses, even cordial or martini glasses. The list is endless – from your everyday juice glasses to your fine dining glassware; a glassware studio is a comprehensive source for all your glassware needs. For those shopping for the bride and groom, the glassware studio where they are registered will provide you with a list of all the items they have chosen. But feel free to wander past the parameters. Beautiful glassware that they may not have necessarily chosen – serving bowls, vases, and decorative pieces – can be a unique and welcome surprise. Look for a glassware studio right in your nearest department store; the choices will be varied and distinctive and you’ll often find the employees to be vastly knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Glassware can be a lasting and sentimental gift that any couple will be happy to display in their home and will bring a lifetime of joy to be passed down from generation to generation.
