The Little Glass House

Mr T and I have been working on a fun project his week…fun and hard!   …hard, because I had to scrape paint off of the paned-glass windows.

I got this idea from a post over at Joyworks.   I just knew that I Mr T had to make one and I even had the not so perfect windows to work with…4 matching 6-paned windows (that were covered with that nice, hard layer of beige{y} yellow paint).

Lovely (I hope you can hear the drippy sarcasm)!

After completing the nice coat of red, the finished project really turned out quite charming.  We made it with hinges so we could remove the pins and completely break down each piece…now that is lovely ~ and, speaking of lovely, I covered a lamp frame with some twinkly lights and this wonderfully, ruffly slip and hung it in the tip-top of the little glass house ~

twinkly, ruffly fun!

double Lovely!

We had alllllll day to set up (9-5) our booths and business began at 5:00 pm.  There really wasn’t much business last tonight but I’m feeling hopeful for today.
