A gift from Venice

This litle glass heart was a gift from Chrisartist (my sister)

Chris and her husband just love Venice and whenever they visit family in the U.K. they grab a cheap airfare to Venice and explore the history and culture of this amazing city. Glass blowing in Venice is a huge part of the experience and most tourists get a water bus and head out to Murano to see the glass and take a look at how things are made.

I collect the murano glass and have a few more pieces (see photographs) and the gold pendant actually came from Venice too from Chrisartist's son (my nephew) when he visited there a few years ago. The other pieces I now buy at a local jewellers here in our town and I just love them all.

    I've been to Murano once before. It was so beautiful and quaint there.
