Things I’ve Stopped to Glue

Part 1 – Glass on Glass Window Gallery

Well Done

Reflecting on 2018 and found myself thinking about all of the things that I said I was gonna get done and didn’t. But …  since I don’t make resolutions the woulda, coulda, shoulda side of the whole guilt trip thing is pretty much mute.

Besides, I made thousands of great decisions, sorta kept to one list, sold a ton of stuff,  stayed fairly organized, learned something new everyday and I can still button my old jeans. Well done!

Cheers to a Healthy and Happy New Year!

Letting Go

If you’re a plant person, you’ll understand that letting go of a plant isn’t easy – especially an old one – so after my 16-year-old Ficus was sold I visualized it thriving on the beautiful farm where a couple of childhood dogs supposedly lived. 😉 it’s all good, she’s a plant lady❣️

Glass on Glass Vintage Window Project #2

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

gathered and glued

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.
