Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This has become such a fun party every week!  This week I'm sharing my Cambridge glass collection!

Most of my pieces are in the "Portia" pattern.
Some were gifts and others were bought on eBay.
I love how dainty and feminine they are!!!

Those are beautiful. Do you worry about using them and not being able to replace a broken one or are they used on a regular basis.
