Dog Days in the Leap Day Storm

This isn't exactly glass or jewelry related but a new puppy has arrived in our household and I just had to share photos of playtime in the snow. It seems Winter decided to descend afterall and we had 18" of snow overnight. We now have 30" on the ground, so things were suspended for the day, my husband couldn't get to the Clinic, he barely made it out of the garage before getting stuck. Many local businesses closed and the DOT warned everyone to remain at home due to the amount of snow, until they could get things plowed. But in the meantime these little guys had their fun in the snow. Meet our new addition, Emmet

 Come on Mick let's play!

Love those flying ears!

Oh and this gives you a bit of an idea of how much snow we got!

More Oak Leaves

I thought since I had the cabinet doors from the kitchen of my friend Jean, I should probably put up the 5 foot window that graces her entry on one side and provides some extra light in a hallway on the other side. IT has the same Oak leaves  only in a seedy amber glass and the wonderful swirly Baroque glass. Once you start in on a sheet of Baroque for a window like this , you can't make a mistake or you have to start over. You need to keep that continuous swirl pattern intact. Lucky for me , the glass gods were smiling that day!

Oak Leaf Cabinet Doors

A few photos of some cabinet doors I did for my friend Jean. The first two are backlit and the bottom photos are in regular light to show off the swirls of the beautiful Baroque clear glass.
