Most everything I loved I moved without the slightest idea where it would fit... but it all is fitting and sometimes prettier here than at the farm. This piece of antique stained glass is a case in point.. I bought it at a building auction over 30 years ago. . I went looking for old used windows for the barn and fell in love with this piece . It was without a frame and in pretty sad shape. I cleaned and repaired it and had a window made for it at the farm on the landing on the stairs and it was gorgeous but only seen by family.
Here it is the focal point of the house and just smashing... I made a new frame with 2 by 2s but hired a man to install the board on the ceiling that it is hung from. Since I fell off the ladder last fall I try to avoid anything too high.
I had collected a lot of stained glass over the years and my initial plan was to use it all to make a divider here. But like many of my plans that one was scrapped in favor of using most of the glass on the veranda....and what I don't use on the veranda I will find a place for in the garden... I left four pieces at the farm sale that were in need of repair, the panels from a railroad dining car and the chicken panels of glass in the kitchen. now I wish I would have brought them all as they probably ended up in the dumpster...
Morris will be glad when all the glass is out from under my bed. That is his "safe" place during storms.
