i just love this stained glass ebtrance with the metalic
wall paper and chandilier....

work perfectly!

very cool alternative christmas trees...



this is the worlds largest glass
christmas tree...
this tree was made by a group of glass blowers
and is 25 feet tall


Fiber Optic Christmas tree...
usually these are extremely tacky
but this one is done right!
what a cool tree...


this tree is made from glass water bottles
and took two days to assemble...
by the design firm Paprika.
