Recently Sug, who lives in Glade Cottage, determined that a stained glass window would look nice in the small window near the kitchen sink that overlooks the woods.
The color scheme in The Cottage is generally aqua blue and ruby red with heavy doses of white.
For no particular reason I had started getting hummingbird items for Sug because we have both become fascinated by them. When I saw this stained glass window at Plow and Hearth on sale I texted it to Sug.
Sug ordered it and it came in a few days very well-packed in styrofoam.
When she unpacked it we were both excited to see that the window (18″ by 24″) was in the colors of The Cottage.
And it fit the window almost perfectly.
Ultimately the plan is to hang the stained glass in the top of the window.
I like to think of Advent as the Adventure that leads up to Christmas.
This year I’ve foregone my regular Bible study class to sing in a choir whose program is this Saturday. It’s a whole different situation being part of the choir instead of leader. I used to start thinking about Christmas in August listening to music and creating a theme for a program. This year I am accommodating someone else’s planning.
Since I’m not in my regular study I’m taking another one on a different night with an entirely different group of people. Just part of the adventure.
I love having time and opportunity to be creative this Christmas and work in some events I was never available for. This weekend I’ll be attending the very special craft fair that Charlie and I went to for the first time last year.
Christmas becomes more and more special to me every year. It’s almost my favorite time of year, second only to Easter week.
Have you ever purchased a favorite or unusual craft items?
