What is it???? and a surprise!

Yesterday was our local
Trade Days,
and although the crowd was
not as large as in the past,
I had a great time.
My friend Karen had her
wonderful creations there too.
Here we are before the crowd arrives.
I suggested to Karen to do something
to draw attention to our booth.
I told her I was going to bring my blue bottle tree.
She wore her Pink hair!  LOL
Great idea Karen! Too cute!
We had unique, one of a kind, fun items
for the person who has everything.
Karens creations are
"repurposd art made from unloved things found at the
thrift store, garage sales, or
left by the road".

This is one of her decorative bottles she creates.
It not only looks great on the outside,
but inside there is sand, shells,
and a message....
message in a bottle!
Note the little bottle hanging by wire off the side.
That's cool!

Here's a great soap dish,
( it could be used for anything...candy dish etc.),
and on top of the dish is some of Karen's homemade soap,
wrapped up very pretty.
I just recently taught her how to make homemade soap,
and her cinnamon, coffee soap is wonderful
(seen below)
Looks so pretty and smells sooo good!

 Here is another one of my favorite creations she made.

I think it's great that she put vintage buttons
in the margarita glass.
(you can click on each photo to enlarge)
Very fun and very creative.


OK, I guess you are wondering about my post title....
What is it????
These are four of many that were the big attraction at our booth.
Can anyone tell me what they are?
All I know is they are glass.

Now for the surprise...

when I hold them up to the light,
they look like this...

and this...
and this...

They are gorgeous!
Each one different.
If you know what they are,
Karen and I would sure love to know.

Thanks for stopping by!

Savor the Day!

I'm no help in identifying the glass objects, but they sure are beautiful when you see the light through them. Perhaps some sort of paperweight? I wonder if you could wrap wire around them and make them into a suncatcher in a window??

I think these a prayer stones to carry with you to lessen a heavy burden on your heart. What a wonderful day!!! Peace, Mary Helen

Wow, those stones are gorgeous, love the fire ones! I would definetely wear them if they weren't too heavy. I would also have been buying the soap, really nice display---I want the soap dish too :) Looks like a lot of fun and so nice to have it outside! We had snow Saturday---that's what I get for living way up North :)
My friend is in the States for the Thanksgiving holiday and when she comes back, I'll ask her if she knows what the stones are--she's very knowledgeable when it comes to stones.
Thanks for coming to say hi on my blog :)

Could they be glass healing beads...I hope they have a center hole so one could string them onto a special necklace! Lovely glass works! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Thanks for this link, Yvonne, loved the entire post and photos. What an imagination your friend has, her work is awesome! Now, for my question, after reading the comments, I still don't know what these little glass orbs are. I think I see them in a glass jar at your booth, on top of the cinder block, is that right? Did you sell them all, for how much (if you don't mind sharing)? They are gorgeous!!!!!!!
