Bonjour from Campagne Maison
I previously had six of these glass window panes but somehow during our move, four of them "mysteriously" disappeared. I think they are floating around in outer space somewhere with all the other things of mine that have "mysteriously" disappeared over time.
Please tell me that I am not the only blogger whose husband isn't really "into" all their wonderful junk finds. Mine sees only what he is looking at with his own two eyes and NOT what my two eyes are seeing thru my imagination. And, when I say: "YOU can make me a frame to mount these and I will hang them in the window and the sun will shine thru them and fill the rooms with beautiful rainbows of color"...etc..., he backs up and walks in the opposite direction. I don't let him get too much over on me however, because at our former home, his shed/shop was almost as big as our entire house. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary for him to have at least two junk automobiles sitting inside there waiting to be "restored". Anyway, ladies...I think you get my drift.
I spotted these glass art pieces at a church auction. The owner, who was also the pastor of the church, owned rental property and was into "flipping" houses. These windows were on an addition to a home that he was remodeling to "flip". The artist had gone to great lengths to replicate the existing original stained glass windows in other areas of the house and he said he hated to see them destroyed. They have aged and the plastic paint is cracking in areas. I have the supplies to repaint them BUT I love them just like they are!
And, this past week I was finally successful in getting the DH to make me frames for the two remaining pieces of glass and I got them hung up in the windows and the sun shines thru them filling the room with beautiful rainbows of color" ...........ahhhhhhhh....I love it when a plan comes together!
Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.
