Recycled glass countertops glowing green: These have a tapelight at the counter's back edge that turns the glass from transparent to glowing at night. Pretty, and useful for late night snacks! #smartcommunity

Instead of tossing away those old glass bottles, save them to make these spectacular crafts. And with the holiday season quickly approaching, you'll have a few great gift ideas to keep in mind!

layered smashed bottle glass in kiln to tree shape and tacked fused.  A further tack fuse to join them together and then a slump onto a wave mould.  They are very delicate to touch and I’m not sure how long they would last.  I have some more on the way using bigger pieces of glass which should be more robust but I like the detail in these created by using so many small pieces. http://abundantglass.co.uk/2010/09/08/recycled-glass-trees/
