Blue Glass on Sale at West Elm

My sister collects orange glass. If we collected, we'd go for blue. And we might get our start affordably at West Elm, where we've spotted a few eye-catching blue glass pieces lately...

One is that glass ball lantern pictured up top. Made of hand-blown swirling blue glass, it's on sale for only $20 right now. Hang the lantern outdoors with a tealight inside for a little garden dining charm.

The Artisanal Vase Collection would get us started on a blue glass collection. It includes a large clear blue vase, an opaque blue glass pot, and a small swirled glass apothecary-style vase. The set of three is only $53 right now.
