Summer Lovin’ …

DH surprised me tonight by suggesting a vit pull.  Aww … Thanks, babe!  So – we did.  It’s Bullseye aqua, teal, steel blue, emerald green, powder blue, warm white and clear.  I’m happy with the results!

Leaving with a quick photo of our Victor, who took a minute to pose as he soaked up some rays while eyeing his domain … Handsome Boy!  Cute puppy pics to come, and I’m hoping for a bit of pool time soon!


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at
