Old Stained Glass Windows

Saturday, May 10, 2014

I have always loved old homes with stained glass windows. There is just something special about them. They are not common in my part of the country, here in rural East Texas, and I can't stand the thought of someone tearing one of those lovely old houses down. Last week my Mark surprised me with windows for my birthday. Yeah! Total surprise! Couldn't believe it! Never even crossed my mind! Wouldn't have guessed it in a million years! Surprise! Like a little kid on Christmas morning! In total shock! Not that he isn't usually thoughtful and sweet, but that I got windows!
He found three exactly alike and they fit my kitchen windows perfectly. I wish I knew where they came from and what the house looked like that they were in and who built the house and lived there.
I really like the simple design and color. I think it fits my little farmhouse and style perfectly. 
We used eye hooks in the window frame and attached cup hooks to the windows themselves to hang them.
The way the old windows hang in front creates the illusion that the windows are open. I didn't expect that but I like the way it feels.
Here is how it looks from across the room. I can't believe what a perfect fit they are.
Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1,14

Wishing you God's best,
Elaine
