One of my readers asked if I grew up with a stained glass window like Prissie’s. While I had nothing as fine as Miss Priss’s treasure, this old farmhouse does have a pane of colored glass set above the door leading out onto the screen porch. (I’ve always loved this shade of greenish blue!) The first picture gives you a peek at the old woodwork found throughout the house, which was built in 1880.
However, there used to be a beautiful stained glass section in the big picture window. I don’t remember it because the window had to be replaced when I was tiny, but it matched this stained glass light fixture, which hangs over the base of a beautiful wood staircase.
And since I mentioned the staircase, here’s a look at the newel post at its base. Some of you may understand: growing up with all this woodwork, the smells of Murphy’s Oil Soap and lemon oil are very nostalgic for me. : )
What about you? Does a pane of stained glass color your view in some way?
