Glass Spider

I don’t really like spiders. I’m actually terrified of them. For that reason I really like collecting them. Not real ones mind you, but figurines, pictures etc. Spiders are very beautiful creatures, I’m just not a fan of their ability to bite and possibly poison me. Figurines can’t hurt you unless you break them and then you can get a nasty cut. I know that part from experience. I got this picture of a Glass Spider sent to me by a reader and I became obsessed with finding it. I eventually found it at CoolBugStuff.com and I was very excited to see that it was only $29.99. I was terrified that it would be super expensive. They are hand blown by a guy in St. Petersburg, Russia. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I decided that I must own it, so I went to order it and found their system is not working “at this time” and to check back. What?! That sucks! Maybe I’ll try and call them. Either way I can’t wait to add her to my collection. I have seen many different and pretty glass spiders, but none as beautiful as this one. This one looks really creepy and like it’s about to attack at any moment. Kind of describes me!

*Thanks JennieOh for the picture! 🙂

    HAHA you feel the same way I do about them. I get jumpy around them but I find spiders very interesting and beautiful. But I just get this image of them crawling on me and it freaks me out. But I love glass animals and the first one I got is a spider. I find that glass spiders look so beautiful. Looking at the glass work makes me want to try it out when I get in college or if I could find a glass blower around where I live. But one of my favorite people who make glass- is this guy-http://www.etsy.com/listing/104097852/basement-creeper-spider-lampworked-glass – he has his own site as well and all of his work is amazing.
