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.
