Soak Up The Sun

I know this has taken forever and I have been teasing ya'll with bits of photos here and there but the time has come. I finally installed the stained glass window. I was going to wait until it was completely trimmed out and everything to show it but I'm having some issues with a little moisture between it and the exterior piece of glass, so I may end up having to take the window back out and seal things a little better, then reinstall the stained glass.
However, if I have to do that I believe I will wait until we have a warmer spell come along because there is such a discrepancy between the inside/outside temps right now I think it would just make things more difficult. As it is, a tiny bit of moisture between them is much better than the one piece of glass that was sweating profusely by itself.
So, here it is. I am quite pleased.

It does add a beautiful feel to the bath. A lot of people have questioned me as to why I insist on adding such touches to the house, because it takes so much time. Hell, I've questioned myself as to why I insist on such stuff! But once it's there it adds so much. It's just a nice touch.

Beautiful! I say- how can you build your own house with your own two hands and NOT add special personal touches? Well done! SO worth it!

Ed said...

If I had your talent, I would have done the same. Beautiful work Annie!

Wendy said...

I wish I had your talent. If I did, I'd have little touches like that all over my house. I think most people view their homes as temporary shelters and not "where they live", which is a huge shame. I think if more people thought of their home as home community building wouldn't be so hard. You know?

Anyway, keep adding those gorgeous little touches, because it's your house, and when you look at it, it should make you happy.

How beautiful! Must be beautiful with light streaming through it!

" A lot of people have questioned me as to why I insist on adding such touches to the house, because it takes so much time"

Huh. Because you are LIVING your life? as opposed to just going through the motions, and keeping up with the Joneses?

Annie, this is a complete delight to my eyes - just gorgeous. Envy is a sin, isn't it? Guilty I am!

Duh! Haven't they been paying attention?
You are an artist.

It is beautiful.

I figured you were teasing us when you mentioned mounting it with a spacer between the other glass ;-)

it was 38 degrees here this morning and I wish I had double insulated windows!

Absolutely stunning ER, nothing like a little beauty here and there to feed ones soul!

Island Rider said...

Oh, it is beautiful. As for the lunkheads who want to know why you would want something special, you're an artist and there is no explaining art to someone who doesn't get it!

Maya said...

Absolutely gorgeous Annie! Well worth waiting for...

Hey Shannon! well, that's the way i look at it too!

Hey Ed! thanks! you could build something like this tho!

Hey Wendy! i think you're right about how people view their 'homes'. Stained glass is fairly easy; i'm sure you could pick it up fine.

Hey Bonnie! thanks; yes, it is!

Hey Jenn! well, some people have some odd ideas! lol!

Hey Sis! thanks!

Hey FC! i think that's it; most people don't pay attention to much of anything. Don't notice what around them.

Hey Mya! thank you! yeah, the double-insulated windows help a lot.

Hey Molly! thanks! that's right!

Hey IR! thanks! yeah, some people you can't explain some stuff to.

Hey Maya! thank you!

Richard said...

Beautiful window Annie. I knew you would get it done.

Woody said...

Count your blessings that you're talented enough to provide beautiful, functional art for your home. Some folks limit of artistic talent is picking an off-white flat paint for their home and hanging an old landscape print second hand from a motel circa 1970.

I would imagine that the sunlight flowing through that panel will really throw some color across the room...wonderful work!

edifice rex said...

Hey Richard! thanks!!

Hey Woody! oh, I am very thankful that I can do such work and I enjoy it so that's what counts.
It does throw some color but not a lot; the glass is pale enough that the color is subtle. It's a nice warm glow basically!

It is lovely! Makes me want to break out in a hymn tune or two.

Beau said...

edifice rex said...

Hey Philip! thanks! me too!

Hey Beau! thank you!

It looks pretty nice Annie. It shows the artistic side of you.
