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.

Thank you, yes we are trying to really make it a home, where everything means something.

Going too work on the worktops next :)
