Time to see something pretty
back window
I knew before my daydream ever came true that I would be making the windows beautiful and full of color.

However, my goal was to to design and create the stained glass
  without blocking the natural light because my tiny house has no electricity.
And I never wanted it.
I have this dreamy notion of candlelight gatherings .
Can't you just imagine that?

 When the daydream became mine and after I had one window sash repaired so I would have the exact size, I started my stained glass project here in my studio.

Of course, The Garden Palace would have a garden theme.

The 'L' shaped middle room has a morning glory theme.

The theme in the tiny room is pansies.
This room is the only single window.
I presume it may have been a dressing room.
And may have even had a chamber pot.

Roses adorn the parlor.
Of course.

 Stupid kitty goes over with me now and seems quiet comfortable.

The parlor has three windows and I don't seem to have a photo of the other front window.
I spent untold hours during every spare moment cutting glass for five double windows, one single window and the last one for above the front door.

All the while, going to the office from 8 to 5 and working in the garage on the window sashes.
some windows installed 
When there was daylight I was at the little house prepping walls for paint, painting and stenciling and building steps and stairs. 

more about walls and building coming 

ps...did no notice the view looking out each window?

(laughing more) through a couple tears.
