funny that you posted this link.. I placed a order with them last Thursday !
( You must have sent me the vibes)
Bookmarked this site, CALAM. I, too, was surprised at the sizes the teacher had. 'course, she's been to Murano several times, and buys like there's no tomorrow. I use it to fill holes now and then, but am too stingy to buy tons of it - like smalti. CALAM - Sam put a few of the larger pieces into the kiln. I put a cluster in and made a little flower for the center of the yellow flower in the PV piece.
I just checked out the tutorial about tinting white thinset and using it as the adhesive and grout...ooohhhh..aaahhhh!!!! LOVE the colors!!!
This site is a regular for me. They are great to work with. Their tints are wonderful.
Oh yeah, I can do serious damage to my budget there!! Love them and you don't have to sort through,just buy the color you want
Meadel, have you got your order yet???Got Pics???!!!! Klinger and I ordered some goodies...it may take a while to get all the way to us up/over here!lol!
I love there site. I order and got mine. Now to play with it in something.
Thanks for the link, Jane... especially about the tutorial! I've been using the "spread and smush" method on some stepping stones and was interested to see it used on a picture frame. Love the colors they used!
Waiting to see what Lori got, too! :)
Do show us a pic Gretch!!! We does like our drooly eye candies!!!(said with a Gollum voice)
Calamity thanks so much for the link. I can't believe they are in ORLANDO!! I feel a trip coming on.. oh me oh my... i'm going back to drool, LOL
I'll take some pics tomorrow in the light.
I took the plunge and ordered a couple of the mixed sets. Received them Wed and am pleased. Not sure what they will be used for, but have them to use when I have a need for em.
youall are making me smile. Fair warning. once you get started buying from MM, it'll be an ounce here, an ounce there, and you'll end up with a drawer full like me!!! They send out emails when they get new stuff. Don't miss their little butterflies.
I've been looking at Murrine or murrini also, and there are quite a few people making it themselves, so that is an extra fun thing to use I think. I haven't bought any yet. I found one that has numbers, but I don't need so many. I'd love to put the date in my backsplash --- whatever year I actually finish that is.
I put one of Murano Millefiori's stars in my backsplash to mark the day my stepdaughter finished police academy, and her partner said, well how about a teacher apple for me? so I started looking for an apple and a month of googling later, found this site! I think they may actually be pumpkins, but if I put green behind them it should bring out the red.

OMG.. Betty~ I cringe when I get those emails.. I have no restraint for the stuff. Do you think they drug it? I am addicted.. I love to just play with it. It's a sickness .. Now I just went to that Bridgetown site.. I am having palpitations.. ( I think you're a pusher) : )
Sorry, I keep meaning to take photos.. Hopefully there will be some sun tomorrow. I want to use some good light while I play with my " preccioouusssssssss"
Did you say butterflies..
( I am not going to look.. I am not going to look)
Ok,Betty- where are the butterflies??/ I can't find them, but I did see some really cool looking starfishes, at least they look like them. oohh soo pretty.
THANK YOU LADIES!!! For showing me I'm not the only one!!!lol! Klinger and I are awaiting our order....
Meadel, Cindy and I just got our shipment and here is a sample of the Motherload I got!!! I put a quarter in among these babies, to show how dang big they are, I see you got some bigguns too!!!
