Colorful tinted drinking glasses are one of those everyday luxuries that has a surprising amount of smile power. I recently inherited a set of whisper-pink tinted tumblers from my great aunt, and I can't help but grin every time I grab one from the cupboard. Elsie Larson from A Beautiful Mess, whose stunning collection is pictured above, says her purple starred goblet (middle shelf) is a smile-sparker. Something about glass, plus color, plus light happens to have this effect. To get it, search flea markets for vintage styles (Depression glass is the expensive stuff), or browse the 10 fresh picks that follow.
