100 Things I love

I had a wonderful weekend. It started off with free tickets to a Brazilian music festival and then a trip to Fairchild Tropical Gardens. Now you know how I love gardens and this one currently has three of my favorite things - flowers, butterflies and Chihuly Glass. Hubbie and I went down there specifically to see the Dale Chihuly Glass Exhibit before it left at the end of the month. The flowers and butterflies were just a bonus. I realized that I had not posted Chihuly glass on my favorite 100 things so I get to do another thing on that challenge and share my day. I'll start out with the glass pieces today and get to the other things during the week. If you are not into glass-blown art you can pass on by. I'll put most of them under the cut to save space.

Aren't they? I have loved his work ever since I first saw it in Columbus, Ohio a number of years back and then of course in Seattle two summers ago.

I know how hard it is to make stuff like this. It's amazing!

Those ball things, are there lights in them or did they just float on the water?

Loved it!
thanks for sharing!

It is amazing. I go see his work every chance I get. I've been wanting to do a workshop on glass blowing that is in my area.

The balls and other objects just float on the surface. No lights. He does do some neon projects and this exhibit is open for a night time showing too but except for spot lights aimed at or surrounding them there are no internal lights.

Every object was beautiful.
I have a thing for orbs and egg-forms.

Wouldn't they be even more amazing if there were lights in them? :)

I plan to see the Chihuly exhibition in OKlahoma City next month.

I can't wait!
