Happy Sunday!  It's a great day to catch up on house chores we neglected through the week, especially with two shows :)  I hope your Sunday is relaxing, as it's a nicer day out here than it was all week.  Well, today I wanted to share with you three of our latest glass art pieces to be listed, especially this first lovely implosion flower:
