Travel theme: Glass

This week’s Travel theme is Glass. I love glass, I visited lots of glass factories and Czech Glass – Crystal, metallurgic, blown – is really beautiful. You can read about one type of Czech Christmas Glass ornaments in one of my previous posts here. Today I am going to write about my other loves. First, I love bottles, mainly old colorful bottles (emtpy ones :-)) with embossement. Second, I love Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania – read my post about it here) and one place I really enjoyed to be was Estonian National Park Lahemaa at the North coastline of the country.

My glass shots will take you to maritime museum in a small village called Käsmu. During summer there are really really long days in Estonia, and as there is still the light at the late evening, you are not going to sleep, because why to go to sleep during the day? Therefore, I was wandering around the village at about 11pm when I found a big house, Sea Museum, that was opened and I went in. I was taken by all the beautiful glass bottles in windows, and now I share them with you.

    I have a collection of old bottles myself. I was going to use them for this challenge but then i realized I would have to dust them off. 😉

    I love these glass photos! I love old glass/bottles too. I’ve heard there is some beautiful glasswork in that part of the world.

    Colored glasses captures the sun’s reflection and adds a unique, beautiful design to any household section. My sister started collecting a few many years ago. Some were already antique which made them even more valuable.
