Enchanting Windows Party

This is the Window in our Victorian Cottage in Eufaula AL. I find it enchanting and can't wait to show you it from the inside out. Hopefully I will have the room decorated by the holidays.

Please come back to see me. I have posted about this window before and asked if you could see something wrong with the stained glass. Let me know if you do?

Highland View


An Outside window view of this wonderful patio.

This is how you got to this patio from the inside. The window goes up.

The windows you are looking at are in a house called Highland View. It was on the tour of homes during the annual pilgrimage in Eufaula held in April each year.

This home was for sale when we first discovered the town. It had been completely renovated and had a large pool with roses surrounding it. It was breathtaking. It also had a special window. I can't remember what they called it but I guess it was used like our patios are but minus the sliding door.


Ceilo at http://www.houseinroses.blogspot.com/ is hosting this wonderful window party. I do hope that you will join us today. It should be fun.

I am participating in the Tea Party as well. Come join me won't you at laceandlures.blogspot.com.

Hi Becky and it's so nice to meet you! What a beautiful stained glass window! Okay, to me it looks like the ribbon on the right hand side is off, is that it?
Thanks for stopping by my tea party.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a beautiful window!

The only thing I see that's a little different is that one side has a couple pieces to the right by the laurel/bow that's leaded, where it's not on the other side... I think the window's beautiful. If that's what's wrong or not - the window is a real piece of art ;) How fortunate to have such a window in your home.

I happened on to another one of your blogs that was simply breathtaking too (outside), so I'm off to look there again. Glad to have found you through sweet Cielo!

Seems as tho it might be upside down, but also "inside-out" as well... from the looks of the lead and texture of the glass this looks like the "front" of the glass which should be inside?

It's gorgeous tho and no one would know anything was wrong.

Hi!
That is amazing that you know Chip Roberson. I don't know him personally but I know of him. Have you ever visited here?

Sharon~heartsongs said...

You probably already have this but just in case you don't.

I read on the profile that his church is just down the street from me!

Thanks for the visit! I was "Becky" all my growing-up years, then switched to "Rebecca", then "Becca" for online.
My brother had a nickname for me too, he still calls me "Bec". I never liked it as a teenager until my boyfriend began calling me that, then I suddenly thought it was CUTE. :)
I am having a giveaway on my blog, if you get a chance to stop by!

The window is beautiful inside and out. I love it. I think the whole house is enchanting.
Is the tendrils on the ribbon not right? The right side is different from the left.
BTW thanks for coming by today and visiting. I will have my Show and Tell up later today.
Have a Blessed Day,
Sherry

What a breathtaking home!! My dream home for sure. About painting, I learned the donna dewberry way, then quickly went my way by lots of practice and looking intently at roses and shadows. The best thing I ever did though is take oil painting lessons, I learned how to mix oil paint colors and to begin my palet. I cant tell you how that changed my life! Of couse I had an unusually wonderful art instructor who didnt belong at michaels crafts! She was a college grad with Art as major. If it's your passion then you will master it, just get the paints out and start!! Hugs, Kim

Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. In the Highland View home, those are windows inside the house which raise up for entry into the patio room? Similar to pocket doors that slide into the to the side, but instead it's a window that raises up? Am I understanding that right or am I completely off base here? I've just never heard of anything like that before. It's a truly fascinating idea...or am I off my rocker? lol
