G/Alphabe-Thursday

 Stained GLASS - St. George's Anglican Church, Jackson's Point

G is for GLASS

St. George is slaying a dragon. If you're interested, you can learn a bit more about the historic church here.  It's a lovely church open from April to October, and it is located in Georgina on Lake Simcoe just north of where I live in East Gwillimbury.

 Glass marbles in glass vase and glass stars on glass mirror

My sister- and brother-in-law treated us royally at their home over Christmas. This was at the centre of the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day table.

Collector glass insulators (from old power poles)

Some people collect these...really.  You might be one of them. My husband is too.

Beautiful photos of glass. It seems to sparkle at Christmas in the candlelight doesn't it? I love the blue insulators. I have 3 clear glass ones I bought at a garage sale. That's it. Small collection. :)

That window is just amazing! I have a couple of those insulators lying around somewhere. Guess I'm not that big of a collector, but they are interesting.

I took my kids and grand kids to Yellowstone this summer and rented a house for us all to stay in. There was a big collection of those glass insulators in the house - I understand the appeal, they are quite beautiful....

lovely shots...

Beautiful glass. I don't collect insulators but do admit to owing two or three. Use mine for paperweights.
