Friday Finds :: Glass Insulators

15 Apr

Who knew glass insulators would make their way into 21st century design?

Dating back to 1840′s, glass insulators were created to carry the current between telegraph lines.

Free History 101…

Now glass insulators can be found in design magazines if you look closely.  They range in color…clear, blue, green, and purple…and in price.

I found my blue glass covers in Round Top a few weeks ago…for $2.

We shopped alittle more and found some for $125.

I think I got the better deal.

And the year before, I bought clear covers for $1.

Ahh…sweet victory.

They’ll make their way in my home in the very near future after they get a warm, bubbly bath.

I am working on a new design for our living room and I think I’ve found the perfect home them.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

And…come by tomorrow…Angie and I are being featured on a fabulous blog…you’ll get a peek into our homes!
