I like to have special touches in my bathroom. I have this mint green glass tumbler I found at a thrift shop. (I also have disposable cups available) This just looks so pretty. The picture is in the guest room, on a bed table, but I really need red or pink for that room. My bathroom is green and so it sits in there. I am the only one who uses it. I really like colored and antique glass ware. This one is very heavy and sturdy. I like to see pictures of glass and collectibles from other places as well.

A very pretty piece, probably green depression glass. Lovely.

No, it is not depression glass, it is heavier. I think it is more contemporary. I have a sugar bowl or pitcher that is green depression glass. It is just a pretty thing that caught my eye.

@GardenGerty It is not a pattern I am familiar with but there are so many, at any rate it is pretty.

@BelleStarr And the fact that is pretty is all that counts for me at this time. I am enjoying it and liked being able to share a picture.

That is a very pretty tumbler. I have all my grandmother's pink depression glass. It really is lovely.

I love how the pink depression glass looks. In fact I love how all glass sparkles and gives color to a room.

@GardenGerty I use the pink depression glass when my girlfriends come for lunch. Guys would not appreciate the pink.

I am not positive it is antique. It is quite heavy, though. I love old glass for sure. Here they are coming out with some pretty modern colored glass in places like Wal Mart.

It is really cool. I never knew much about Thrift Shops until I worked in one. I found things I could not find anywhere else that I needed and bought a beautiful down coat. I love Thrift Shops.

Glow in the dark or when? It does not glow in the dark because it would be easier to find in the dark if it did.

@GardenGerty i think you have to use a "black light" on it..but if it's uranium glass it "glows" a bit

I bet the entire set of that would be handsome to have up on the shelf.
