The Window



Dear Ladies,

I so appreciate your visit and in hope it is worthwhile.  I got the above picture from Pinterest, because it reminds me of the simple window scenes of long ago. All we needed was the flour-sack fabric and an old tea cup with a plant in it, to adorn the window area.

A friend in Pensylvania sent me this picture of a a bouquet sitting at her window.  I also like the kind of stained glass thing in the middle.  Those little hanging pictures used to be so prevalent, even in dollar stores, and now, nary a one can be found. Some had rose designs, and others, birds, even tea cups.


Just to make a window pretty is an uplifting thing, and to create a little view outside with a bird feeder or birdbath or a small arbour, adds something more.

A stained glass hanger for a window.

There is a technique for making stained glass with vellum paper and WAC crayons, and there is a tiny coring book made of vellum from Dover.

I like those stained glass hangers. They add beauty to any window. I saw recently that there are coloring books for sale of intricate beautiful designs like flowers for adults to color...what a relaxing way to be creative. I loved coloring as a child and didn't realize it is coming back in adult form. One could frame it also.
