Glass on Glass Vintage Window Project #2

The winner is … 😉 an oldie but a goodie 5 years later. onward!

tilegypsy.com

I found this 10-panel vintage window in Orange, California. It survived the drive back to the Midwest – on top of the truck – and measures 5′ x 2′ feet. The window has a sturdy frame and the glass is in great shape plus … it has really cool hinges that I’ll leave as is. Considering how long this took to create I may have to keep this piece and find a place for it in the cabin.  It’s a favorite!

This window was probably hung the wide way over an old store front somewhere.

Cleaned the entire window with vinegar & water and let it dry. Started to cut the glass pieces and create the design. Made the decision to not glue it down during the design.

You don't find inspiration. It finds you.

Next time … I’m going to trust myself and glue the glass as I’m laying out the design.

Perfect first pass and not a single piece glued. Perfect first pass and not a single piece glued.

Peace of Santa

The Santa head sat in a jar, with other doll heads, until he went on to become a part of this beloved Mosaic Tile Holiday Sign created during a mosaic tile class of the past.

This peace was created with a bit of vintage china, glass gems, glass hearts, pennies and a little peace of Santa all glued and grouted on to a vintage wood sign with a hanger.

Peace of Santa is an older chap who has led a gently loved life – with some minor bumps but not bruises –  and the finished peace measures approximately 8″ inches long x 4″ wide x 1″ deep with a built-in wire hanger and black painted back. On Sale Now! 

Proceeds from this peace will be donated to a local food shelf in the North Country. Thank you.

Survivors and Casualties

The mosaic tile mirrors are still wrapped and since there is nowhere to hang them I’m going to pretend that they look exactly as they did when I packed them a year ago.  It is, what it is – at least I took photos. 😉

Unfortunately, a mosaic tile pitcher didn’t survive the move but the photos of it did so there’s that.
