Stained Glass

Good Morning

I am so glad I didn't have to work this morning and so need to get in the studio and straighten up some things.
I got these leaded  stained glass small windows out of the storage room and really want to clean them up some how?

I had wanted to attach a chain to the top and hang them in a window in the studio and haven't got this done yet

I purchased these once at an antique shop in Lexington Missouri years ago maybe 5-7  years ago , they were having a going out of business sale and I got them very reasonable. I always see idea in my head of what to do with something  and want to re make them and then never can get my ideas into works


I have one in my office window setting between the storm window and the inside window, I don't have curtains in this room because I like looking out into my back yard. There is no houses out back of me and it blocks the neighbors to my side yard  looking in if they are in their back yard

Any ideas of something easy to do with them ?

Oh Did I mention I am moving to Italy ? 

April;s Fool LOL xoxo

Linky parties for this week

Sally's Blue Monday


  1. You got me with the move to Italy. I actually gasped!

    Sorry the photo link gave you trouble. I'll fix it as soon as I leave this comment.

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful stained glass window with a bit of blue.

    Happy Blue Monday, Janice.

  2. I like the idea of hanging them with chains -- I think I'd just brush off the paint that's badly peeling and then leave them all chippy! It's a beautiful stained glass.
    Oh, and for a minute I thought you were moving to Italy too!

  3. oh, if only italy were true! and what a gorgeous window.

  4. Hanging them in the window is perfect.How wonderful to get to live in Italy. We are visiting there in the fall. Visiting from Blue Monday. Blessings, Debbie

  5. You almost got me with that Italy comment and then I remembered it is April Fools Day! Good try, though! 8+)
    I think it was pretty creative to put one in between the storm window and the regular window. If you don't want to put this one in a window then how about putting a hinged piece on each side so you can stand it up and then putting a small lamp behind it.

  6. I think most all stained glass is very pretty. I just do not own any.

  7. They would make great doors on an old cabinet. Just add hinges. No matter what you do they are lovely. Just leaning one on a mantle would be beautiful.

  8. You almost had me with the Italy statement. lol I love the window. It's beautiful just as a piece of art.

  9. Oh Janice, you silly girl! Love the stain glass but don't have any ideas for you. Sorry...

  10. I have been searching for hours and I haven’t found such awesome work.

  11. The stained glass is gorgeous! Italy you lucky girl...oh I see it is a April's fool joke :) Thank you for linking up.

  12. The window is beautiful! I have wanted to purchase two to hang from the upper windows in our family room, but have not come across exactly what I wanted. I am visiting from Coastal Charm and am your newest follower. Please come and visit me at Still Woods Farmhouse when you get a chance!

  13. Your stained glass window is lovely. I just love stained glass and found a pretty antique one a few years ago. It has a red tulip that's sort of shaped like a heart. I just propped it in my kitchen window, but they look lovely hanging on a porch or carport. I would love for you to share with my readers at Transformed Tuesday.

    Hope you can stop by!
    Have a great week,

  15. I was startled with the Italy comment, too!! The window is would be pretty hung in the light somewhere! Thanks so much for stopping by...your sale sounds like one I'd have fun at!

  16. Ciao Bella! Wow that is exciting news. This is beautiful. My husband is crazy about stained glass. xo

  17. Your windows are beautiful. I like to hang them on the inside of windows.

  18. So beautiful!

    Catching up with Blue Monday.

    Would love for you to link up to my Color Connection meme, it is every Friday. You can post any color that you like.


  19. The windows are beautiful! Congratulations on your move to Italy -- that's pretty awesome!

  20. They are gorgeous -- simply beautiful!! Have you thought of hanging one over a high window? I mean, over the glass/window, from fishing line.

  21. This is such a nice piece! I have one of these with the same size and turned it into my medicine cabinet door; it just fits perfectly! You have lots of ideas and whatever you choose it will look lovely. Hope we see the end-result! :)
