Thank you all.

In time will have pictures of all jobs completed, at the moment we work around the weather and health, so we kinda jump from one job to the next. :P

Like i said each door will have something different, and each design has some meaning to us.

stained glass
 
Hi Tuddlytops, these glass panels are truly stunning. I love how you have used celtic designs but made them your own with the dolphins and sea-horses. There is definitely a future career here!! Well done, Eibhlin.

LOL, we love celtic designs, but we wanted to add something that had meaning to us, can be something from our childhood, or to remind us of someone, it doesn't matter.

For instances the one we doing for the living room, has a drawing i used to draw all the time, of a little cottage, done that for years, it was my dream, so we are adding that drawing to the glass, as my dream come true. :P

Well done on all the work you have carried out so far, it looks great and it must be lovely to stamp your own print on the house. I don't know if this offer will be of any use to you but I travel between Limerick and Kildare on a regular basis and if there is anything you need collected in that area let me know, I'm not too far from you (you met my husband while collecting tiles) so just give me a shout if I can be any help.

How are you keeping?

Its been hard work and for the last 3 days we've been trying to make up insulation for the pipes as it is really cold up here.

Thank you so much for the offer, will keep it in mind :P

In limerick,in a arts and crafts shops, don't know the name, its a big corner shop, with a huge ruler on the outside wall, near an hotel i think.

We got 2 small tubes of it, they last forever, so far used about half of one.

Can remember how much it was, but it wasn't that expensive, if you want can check the price and post you one.

cloughcorr 07-12-2010 01:18 PM

Thanks Tudlytops what is the name of it and I will ask the art and hobby shop in greystones if they can order it for me or know of where I can get it in Co Wicklow....failing that I will come back to you if no joy.

Wow Tudlytop - another stunning creation. I found the paint liner you use at the local art shop and have the black and sliver. Have been playing around and practicing the glass painting and even managed to do some reverse glass painting for a picture for a friends Christmas present - must try get a photo to put up and show you - and now I want to do the stained glass. Not so sure it will be as good as yours but it will be fun doing and it will be mine :-)

i would love to do a course in stained glass, we have really enjoyed it, its full of imperfections, but like you say, its ours and it means something to us.

The one in the pictures has a child like drawing of a cottage that i used to scribble all the time and funny enough stopped when we bought this house, because having a small cottage was always my dream we felt it was important to put it somewhere and that's where the idea of the stain glass come from.:P

Old fireplace

The fire place was covered up, we opened it up again and fitted the cooker in it.

We found an old egg timer, nothing especial, but it turned out its been here for many years, so we've placed it in between the tiles.

Hi Tuddlytops, I love the fireplace and the mosaic work--your ideas are all so original and artistic. It is so interesting when everything in the house has a story or history attached to it. Loved your stained glass doors too-beautiful. Eibhlin.

We've been so busy with boring stuff, roots growing the drains, insulation, etc, hardly stuff for a before and after.:)

But we have a small before and after.
