Details, Details

A fun display idea from Barbara Cosgrove's home. Vintage marbles. You could do that. Yes, you could!


Also, don't miss one of Barbara's lamps featured in the new issue of House Beautiful. Just one of the "I spy"s as there are several blogger mentions in this terrific issue.

I love this idea. I am bringing out my age again, but marbles dredge up sweet memories of my childhood. How simple were those games, but we had such fun. Glad you pointed out the lamp in the HB Dec./Jan. issue.I totally missed that. I need to revisit my issue & pay better attention Mrs. B! Happy evening to you ~

Ooooh I do love the marble idea! I actually met Barbara Cosgrove here in Atlanta at her showroom at the Mart...she sold me a lovely Fleur de Lis lamp! I adore her lamps!

Love the marble lamp. And, frame piece.
Can't wait to see House Beautiful and her
work.

How delightful that I could finally find all my "marbles" and in a gilt frame, no less! I think Roger Pye-Banks is smiling at this art.

The framed marbles are really fun and so interesting!

I remember when you first posted about intaglios, and I said that I should have my Halcyon Days boxes mounted and made into a display. I thought of this again when I saw the marbles in this post. I am still thinking about doing this....

Anyone for a Moon Marbles visit? Great retro toys like the Bozo the Clown pop up punching bag and hand-made marbles plus big candy bowls of marbles sorted by color scheme all lined up in a sunny window.
If that isn't enough, a train runs right behind the store.
