Aglow

I didn't even know that Manila had a shop dedicated exclusively to Murano glass until I saw this in the lower ground floor of Sofitel Philippine Plaza. I didn't go inside for fear of breaking something, but even through the windows, the glass was breathtaking.

I can imagine I'd cause a breakage too!

Next time, have your husband hold your purse or handbag outside the store so you don't break something inside, least of all your credit card!

Only one reason why I do prefer glass and not diamonds.

A wonderful bright weekend for you.

I enlarged the photo and you're right -- the glass is breathtaking. And I would be afraid to go in there as well!!

I love the reflection shot! Me too, I would not dare go in, you break it you bought it!

Jacob said...

I would not think you capable of breaking anything! Murano glass is gorgeous...methinks next time you should gather up your courage and make a break for it...wait, that's not a good metaphor...

Oh, well...

I'm afraid of these shops, just the fear to break something. This looks very nice...
