For a real treat, stop by Cielo's blog, The House in the Roses, today, to see all the enchanted windows other bloggers have submitted. The entries are truly enchanting. Every woman should have one place in her home she can look out, and be enchanted. Not only in her house, but in her soul. The window in my living room is my favorite. When we built this house, we had the builder box-out a double window to hold the cobalt, fenton art glass, and amber depression glass I've collected over 38 years of marriage. This is just a small part of it. I rotate the glass between windows and rooms all over the house. Mixed in are a few Royal Copenhagen and Hummel pieces. You can see that the sofa print echoes the colors of the glass.
The framed piece in the center, was a housewarming gift from my sister. She picked flowers from the perennial gardens in our previous home, preserved them and framed them under glass. It is something I treasure.
This window overlooks a beautiful room that holds several cherished antique tables, a secretary desk with all the little cubby-holes, and a baby grand piano that is played by me and both our sons....and now Ella. There are french doors separating this room from the family room. It's my favorite room here....a perfect place to curl up with a cup of coffee or tea, and a favorite book.
May you each see some kind of 'enchantment' through the window of your soul today.
