Vintage window given new life

Isn’t it wonderful that vintage windows are no longer being relegated to the dump?

In fact, they are much sought after by artisans, handicrafters and DIYer’s. Besides reducing the amount of “garbage” that ends up as land fill, re-purposing vintage windows is a terrific way to add something unique and hand-crafted to your home.

This window, with its bright red cardinal and pretty blue bird, is now displayed in the window beside my back door. I planning to do the window in the door, too, so I can take down the dreary curtain. (See last photo) Here are some close-ups.

This was the first one I created on my own and it was a learning experience. (I took a one-day workshop and fell in love with this art). Next time I create a scene with evergreen branches, I’m going to use white or pale gray grout so the individual needs will be easily definable.

Here’s the little blue bird. And below the bluebird is a photo of the whole back entrance.

I hope this inspires you to try glass-on-glass mosaics or, perhaps, some other new craft. Check out your local stained glass shops for classes and workshops.

Thanks, so much, for dropping by. I hope you’ll stop in again, soon.
