Glass City

Posting a little late today. We just got back from a two week trip. A little business, showing the collection on the East Coast, and a little friend and family time in NYC and Ohio. Lots of fun, but nice to be back home with our dog Max. Anyway, while we were home, my parents took us to new Glass Museum in Toledo. If you ever find yourself in Toledo, you should check it out. the building is quite nice and the collection is pretty sweet as well. We especially liked the ancient pieces. Here are a few pictures we snapped.
