Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Night Lights

A week or so ago, I went outside to snap a picture of our new neighbor's house decked out for the holidays.  I wasn't really pleased with the image as it doesn't really convey how nice their place looks.



Oh well, I was outside with a tripod so decided to take a few pictures of other night lights.  It's interesting how different stained glass looks lit from inside at night vs. being viewed from inside during the day. 





Have a wonderful weekend all!

  1. I am very fond of that curved window of stained glass. What a treasure! Mark did lots of grid and checkerboard paintings in his early days so that window is the kind of treatment that will always catch my eye.

  2. Nothing that refined in our 'hood -- lots of inflatable snowmen and santas still bobbing on the lawns. But at night, the lights somehow even make that stuff look magical. Our problem is not wanting to take the simple strands we put up on the porch down! In fact we did leave a strand of white lights outlining the porch up all last year....

    1. Once the festive season is over, lights become garden illumination. Why take them down if you enjoy them?

  3. Nighttime photos are difficult at best but I think you did a great job at capturing the beauty of the scenes in each case.

  4. I wonder if someone in your neighborhood featured Your house on their blog! Gorgeous stained glass everywhere. Clever way to hang the framed glass panel in front of the light fixture. Love that one.

    1. Hanging that one in front of the light fixture was an accident. I also love that panel.

  5. Stained glass windows and doors are just gorgeous, aren't they?
    Wonderful photos despite the difficult lighting conditions.
    Happy New Year!

  6. I didn't realize you had so many stained glass windows, it's almost like you live in a Gothic cathedral. I like your neighbor's house too, nicely understated and cozy.

    1. The last one is from the next door neighbor's house but the rest are at our place. There are more sitting around all over the house. Every time I teach a class, I make a demonstration window.

  7. All Beautiful. You have so much lovely glass in your house. I suspect you made all of those windows?

    1. I made some of them but the others were made by my stained glass guru, Florence.

  9. Glorious windows, your talent knows no bounds. The zipper cut bevels are simply amazing; each window is a marvel. :-)

    1. Well, Florence made some of the windows but she taught me how to make the zipper bevels. They're actually thick glass that I chipped around the edges with a special tool & used them in making that panel.

    1. You are too kind but I can't take credit for all of the windows as some are the work of my pal and glass mentor, Florence.

  11. It's fun to see things in different lighting and from different angles. Beautiful stained glass, and knowing that you helped make them - I am impressed!

  12. Oh wow, yes, your stained glass is stunning in that type of light! Well, it's stunning anytime, but very dramatic when back-lit at night. Your neighbors' display is awesome, too!

  13. The stained glass is really beautiful. You made these yourself??
