People are so wonderfully creative.
Artistry shows up in lots of unexpected places--
Friday when out with a friend,
I came across the most charming stained glass "sun catcher."
It is exactly like the one in the photo above.
Three oak leaves and an acorn.
I usually don't put these kinds of things in my windows
since I prefer a clear view of the outdoors;
but I was so delighted with this one I had to put it in my kitchen window
for the duration of the season.
I wondered if there were other examples of autumn-themed stained glass,
and I found quite a few in Google images. Here's a sampling:
This first one is a delight:
This one from Schuster Glass is beautiful,
but I would think you'd really have to love autumn
if you were to display this in your house all year:
On the other hand, here's one by Anne Ryan Miller, Hoosier Artist,
that I would leave up all year.
I love it's graceful lines and earthy tones:
This last one, which is by Brenda Valentine,
is exceptional in its detail, but I don't think I would want to display it year round.
Now Thanksgiving, that's a different story.
I wonder if it's for rent?
