My name is Anna, and I work as a primary school teacher in greater London. I love eating pizza and watching TV with my husband. I also love painting glass, and any other crafty pursuits that give me a chance to make a mess! I am on a bit of a mission to learn how to cook, bake, sew and generally make things before I have children. I'm trying to learn something new each day. I really value your support, so thank you for following me xx

Handmade Monday

Hello everyone, hope you've had a great week.

Thought I'd share a few recent bits and bobs, would love your opinions:

After some good advice, I decided to buy some better quality cocktail glasses. The one on the left is the old style, new on the right. It's slightly smaller, but has a more 'martini' shape I think. Which do you prefer?

I was very excited when these glasses arrived, but now have no idea what to put on them! Here's the first experiment. 

You may remember my devilish red wine glass a few blogs back, well I finally finished the set:

Lastly, I'm really pleased with this one. Here is my rainbow hurricane glass

Looking forward to hearing what you think!

    The butterflies on the Hurricane Lamp are stunning.

  14. Love the look of the new smaller style glass and the decoration on the last glass is awesome.
    Hugs Mrs A.

  15. The rainbow colour one is very pretty. I prefer the smaller glass on the right definitely. It seems more Girly.
