~Pink Rose Stained Glass~

Gary and I found this pretty little rose stained glass window on a clearance table at a flower shop that we had stoped into to purchase some fresh flowers. We just couldn't resist it so we made the purchase . The frame was stained a hunter green and I knew it would look so much better painted white and was perfect for the tea room. Gary hung the stained glass window for me, we didn't have a chain so we used some pink ribbon I had left over from a craft project.
Oh my, look what just happened to sneak into this post. I just had to show you all, our orchid plant bloomed for us just in time for Easter!

This is the after and before picture of the stained glass. I had already taped and covered the glass and was ready to start painting and then I remembered I hadn't taken a picture of the before , but you get the jest, see the green frame not really pretty. I like the white much better.
