  1. Thanks for the links! I really like the video of cutting glass – just enough potential danger to make it interesting. Cutting up bottles for various purposes was all the rage in the 1970’s, but none of the projects were nearly as sophisticated as the cut glass bottle chandelier illustrated on the website. How gorgeous! I think I many need to rifle through our recyclable bin . . .

    I chuckled at the photo of Trout watching your computer screen. Our six-month-old Charlotte is absolutely fascinated by ours. She can’t get enough of the cursor moving around and new pages opening. It’s one of the few times she sits still, at least when she’s not asleep.

  2. Thanks for sharing these links. I have checked on the link for glass cutting and oh my god! It is soo amazing! I didn’t know it that easy to cut a glass! and its very fast too. You just need to have those materials needed and then your set. 🙂

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
