Kicking it Old School

May 9, 2007


Such blucky weather we've been having around here. Where is the sun? We've gone a bit stir crazy so I tried rearranging the living room with Keely's "help". It looks awful now and is a giant mess. While scooting the couch around the room, I found our beloved piece of stained glass. See, I haven't made anything in awhile so I'm going to show you something made 7 years ago! Old School arty projects.
It's pretty isn't it? The shadow on the right is from the wall it's leaning against. It's the first and last piece we ever made. When I graduated from college, Ryan and I were homeless and jobless. While job hunting we spent a chunk of time making this stained glass thing. When it was complete, we made a headboard and put the stained glass inside of it. Sounds weird, I know, but it was pretty groovy and we got tons of compliments on it. I don't have a nice photo of that to show you though. Anyway, years later when we became a co-sleeping family of three and were blessed with a king-sized bed- we booted our old queen sized headboard to the curb sooo fast.  We did keep the stained glass (of course) and it has sadly resided under our couch since then. Pity. 
Keely and I had a lovely round of dress-up today.


Don't ya love the glasses? Very old school.

    That’s some nice stained glass! We have an old leaded glass window that was in my great-grandparents’ house, and we hung it from the ceiling right in front of another window. It gets the light shining through it that way. Just an idea! It’s a shame to have it under the couch!

    And what are you doing moving furniture??? Stop right now, and SIT on the furniture. :)

    Would you like some tea, Mrs. Nesbit? (that’s what Keely’s new look imediately brought to mind.)

    Lovely stained glass. Yes, hang it in front of a window. It doesn’t want to hide under tha couch anymore.

    Knock a big hole in your wall and put that glass in the place of honor it deserves!!! Serious. Man, I love that!


    I. Love. Keely.

    I feel like she’s either going to pinch my cheeks and give me a piece of candy or send me to bed with no supper!

    On a bed — wow. How unique. Definitely need to find a spot for that other than collecting dust. Well – one of these days…
