I enjoyed viewing all those murano glasses, wine stoppers, earrings and everyting when we were in Venice... I love everything you have here!!!

Robin said...

Those are just beautiful Mary, I adore Murano glass. In fact, just yesterday I took a photo that I absolutely love of my Murano glass vase, it's just waiting for the right occasion to share it. (No red, so I think it will end up as next week's WW - I've got something else lined up for this week.)

Sanni said...

Oooooh... I adore the Murano glass photos, but I'd LOVE to have some chocolate (diet started today *g*)

My RT photo was taken durig our short trip to Majorca, Spain last week. :-D

Mojo said...

Some pretty impressive bling ya got going on there Mary. But you know nothing says love like a cold nose in the... morning.

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
Wonderful, tempting gifts.
I'll have to introduce Valentine's gift to my husband!!
I doubt that he would go for any of the gifts you have presented here.
I bought some Murano glass jewelry in Venice. Hear; bought, not got.

I love the Murano works. There was a lamp I would sacrifice much to get.
Then it was the flights back home..

Valentine's gift must go both ways or what??

Some people really go out for Valentine's Day, eh? Good way to get the economy moving, I guess. ;-)

I love the murano bottle stoppers. they look very fragile though. i don't think i'd be able to keep a complete set for long. heehee.

here's my ruby tuesday post: http://mysorefeet.webs.com/apps/blog/entries/show/407517-the-bird-s-nest-and-beyond-

the reds are in the 3rd, 4th and 5th photos. :)

Gorgeous glass and yummy sweets. I love those too ... a special treat for a special day!

Carletta said...

Love the glass and jewelry Mary; but - bring on the CHOCOLATE!!! :)

Dora said...

Lovely wine stoppers! Happy Valentine's Day.

Lois Grebowski said...

I ♥♥ Costco!

We went there today. Got bread (that Miltons bread - love it!), eggs, milk, salad stuff and Pluots (this really good fruit).

Oh, and had "date lunch" -- the $1.50 hot dog and drink. Doesn't get more gooder or more affordable than this!

;-D)

Ralph said...

All reds for Valentine's Day are special, either highbrow (as you have shown) or lowbrow, what counts is that it is from the heart!

Arlene said...

beautiful valentines stuff! for sure the chocolate is such a sweet and very affordable gift for someone.

Happy Red Tuesday from my end!

koala said...

Hi, it's my first Ruby Tuesday post. Not really valentine thou.
PS. Love the Murano glasss.

napaboaniya said...

The wine stoppers are looking good.

I bet my man will simple give me the sheepish grin this Saturday for not getting me anything...LOL!

Happy St Valentine's Day Mary!

Paz said...

Nice reds, nice gifts. I'll take one of each (for myself). ;-)

My mom loves Lindor truffles, but she REALLY loves chocolate covered cherry cordials! I'm not so crazy about the glass stoppers, but I do like that bowl with the ruffled opening right below the stoppers - something about those colors that I really like.

Leora said...

I had a busy day today, but given that today would be the day everyone is posting hearts, I stayed up to put up a heart, too.

You did find some pretty gifts!

Pagan Sphinx said...

The glass wine stoppers are really pretty.

Happy, happy!

EastCoastLife said...

People are encouraged to spend to get the economy going. :)

I hope my hubby is going to do his part. haha....

I'm giving linky love to my commentators this V-Day!

Terri said...

Sorry, no valentines from me this week. Couldn't bear to look at another red heart. I hitched my wagon to a star instead.

innergybeauty said...

Pretty. Happy Ruby Tues and Happy Valentines. Check out my entry "how colorful is the morning"

ces said...

oh i just had my share of those Lindt chocolates! the dark variant though:) yum! lovely photos again!:) happy Rt to all!

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

Hi Mary,

I don't know why, but I just adore the V-day jewelry photo, and a woman wearing red in the background is a bonus! Red, shiny, heart-shaped = wonderful.

Gattina said...

Beautiful, I love Murano glass things, did you buy some ?

Amber Star said...

All that was on sale last Sunday at Costco! Oh man..I missed out on that one. Beautiful glass and would have made a very nice Christmas gift for my daughter next year. haha ;)

I put my entry up just now, but it is set to post in a couple of hours when it is actually Tuesday and not some weird hour wherever Blogger is located that is a couple of hours earlier than where I live. And we live in Central time, so who knows where they are located. Probably Grand Cayman or something....or Bermuda.

It is way past time for me to go to bed now. :)

Kay said...

i love the necklaces... think if I steal your photos and leave it lying around the house the Maifan-San will get me something red for V-Day?

Hmmmmm

Anyway, my RT is up.

JoyD said...

Oww they're all nice,, Love the Murano glass!!! Love the Lindt too!!!!!

Becky said...

I love the necklaces! And the Murano glass.

My RT is up. here, if you get a chance to stop by.

Catherine said...

Bonjour Mary,
Murano art works are so colorful, each object is synonymous of Joy.
I've visited a fabric overthere.

Do you share your chocolate with Ruby Tuesday participants ?

Eaton Bennett said...

Mary, the Murano glass is amazing, particularly the wine stoppers. But the Ruby colored necklaces are my pick.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday. :)

Jim said...

Mary, you are pretty red romantic this week! You have some pretty things here. I like the necklaces the best.

Of course red is your thing, you almost invented that color, did you invent Valentines Day (remember when Al Gore invented the Internet)?

Oh boy!
What a beautiful display of ruby red Mary T.
I do declare I get later and later every week with my post but so far since I started, I have missed only one so that isn't too bad for a procrastinator like me!
I guess it is better late than never,eh Teach?
Hope you and Vinny have a great Valentines day on Saturday!!!

Looks like a wonderful Valentine's Day for YOU ;--)

Hugs and blessings,

Julie said...

Oh Mary! My heart skipped a beat thinking about my trip to Venice a little over a year ago. I have a precious necklace to mark the event and my mom (who took me there) ordered me a lovely Murano embellished watch for this past Christmas. It's beautiful glass!

Thanks for making me think about that trip!
