Handmade Stained Glass Window

I haven't participated in a while with Sue at It's A Cherry World for Rednesday. I love the color RED.

My husband has a 1962 Chevy Corvette in his car collection and I made him a stained glass window with his RED 62 Vet. I was so proud of it because I did not use a pattern, I actually drew the picture myself and cut out all the glass.

He installed it above a door to his Speed Shop store front inside his car garage.
It's not a real Speed Shop store, its a fake front so that he can display some of his collectibles inside the windows. We have actually built fake store fronts all along the walls of the inside of this building. It looks like a town inside a garage. Each building displays one of our collections. I will be doing a separate post on each collection in each building. Here is a peek at my Barbie and Friends store. Be sure to come back for Pink Saturday this Saturday, February 26th and see what's inside this store! It's my years of collecting every Barbie and friend and clothes from 1959 through 1970. If you ever played with Barbie when you were a little girl, you don't want to miss seeing this fabulous collection!

A Corvette in stained glass? Wow!


PAINT MY DAY RED!

A seeker of scarlet, they say,
Is likely to savor the day
If painted in red
Or ruby—instead
Of shades of monotonous grey!

Good Morning Ann Sweetie...
Oh my gosh, is there ever fantastic. I want to come and play in this little town. What beautiful fronts and collections inside. It must have taken you all forever to get this accomplished. Such detail.

Speaking of detail sweetie, what an awesome job you did on that corvette stained glass for your sweet hubby. It is beautiful, and looks so gorgeous in its place of beauty. A treasure to have for many years to come.

I can't wait for Pink Saturday. Look our Barbie here we come. I'm a Barbie Girl.

Many hugs andmuch love, Sherry

Hi Anne,
I moved to New Orleans 5 years ago and I was wondering, what part of Calif are you in? I used to live in Granada Hills and I was wondering if you live near there...if so, it is a "small world!"

That stained glass window with the red Corvette is a real beauty. It deserved the place of honor above the front door of your husband's Speed Shop. Your creativity is very inspiring. Continue crafting!
