Stained Glass

I love stained glass windows and have been fortunate enough to find some at reasonable prices.    Three of my favorites are hanging on my sun porch.     They are so beautiful when the sun shines through them.    However, the sun is not shining through them in these pictures because Tropical Depression # 5 is hovering over my house.   They are still lovely, though, even without the light behind them.    The pictures don’t really do them justice.

This is my most recent purchase.    I found it at an antique shop in Pearland, TX for $20.00.     It is the smallest piece I own at 12 x 18.  The frame is white although it doesn’t look like it in the picture.    The bottom two side pieces are a rippled green color and the stained glass in the center of the flower is purple.

I can’t remember where I found this piece.    I have had it for about 10 years.    In case you are wondering, I have this piece hanging behind my bakers rack and the metal leafy looking things are the top of my bakers rack and the pinkish looking flower is my orchid which is looking sickly.

This is probably my favorite stained glass piece.    I love that little pop of red in it.    I have often wondered about the history of my pieces, what the houses looked like that they were in, what room they were in, etc.    Ah, the stories they could tell!

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my stained glass.     Have a good weekend.


I am linking to Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.    Check it out.     There is some great stuff on there.

Oh, I love them! I have been looking for an old one to hang under my gazebo outside. Doesn't have to be in too good of shape, since it will be outside. But, I haven't found one yet. But, I love your prices. What a great find girl. Enjoyed ahhhhhing!

Those are so lovely. The last one is my favorite too, it looks like perhaps it once hung over a doorway. I love that heart in the middle.

Beautiful pieces. I took a class in this and it is hard work!
