Horsetail in the home

In what seems to be a glorious moment of serendipity, I've discovered Livinglass, laminated architectural glass that can be used in furniture, doors, partitions, floors, countertops and more. Described as "inspired by the colors and textures of nature," Livinglass "captures organic materials within luminous sheets of clear glass." Perfect for gardeners, n'est pas?

I mentioned serendipity because Ben and I were discussing the fact that, except for the fireplace, the back wall of our new living room is floor-to-ceiling window.

"But fireplaces are supposed to have art above them, not windows," I whined uncreatively. "Although, the extra light will be nice."

Livinglass's Sutra collection, one of five, would provide the perfect solution.

Although it's a menace in the garden, I love horsetail when it's enclosed in glass!

Livinglass--just the name is interesting. It is very lovely. Extra light is always nice!
