I love this little piece of leadlight glass I found. It was really grubby so I washed,sanded and polished the glass. Each pane is  beautifully bevelled and sparkles when in light


Before sanding

An old mini laundry basket which I am going to use for my growing stash of faded fabrics

Lined it

I look forward to going outside each morning  and checking out what is starting to welcome Spring

  2. Great find its stunning I love old chunky wood. Love your photo's it looks so peaceful and tranquil. I could sit by that bonfire and read Emma quite happily :-) dee x

  3. The glass was a real delight, what a great find.

  4. That frame has come up a treat. I saw something similar today at a garden nursery. They had put mirrors behind the frame and put it up on a nice old rustic wall in the conservatory.

  5. How exciting to see the garden come alive!!! And your glass piece is gorgeous!!! I would use it in so many places! You enjoy all the sweet treats that the new season is bringing to your garden! Loved the lined basket by the way! Happy weekend! Nicole xoxo

  6. Your leaded glass cabinet door is fabulous! Visiting from Thoughts from Alice.

  7. What great finds.. love the little basket and how you lined it. I can so relate to your pics. I just cut some wattle the other day to put in a vase.. I also took pics of my daffodils and hubby lit the bonfire to get rid of old branches etc last Sunday. I'm so glad spring is upon us and I too have so much cleaning to do in the garden I'm sure it will take me a week. take care, Maryann

  8. I love love the window. It looks amazing after you have done it up. Yay for spring!!

  9. Beautiful leaded glass. Your collection of faded fabric look nice in the old basket.

  10. Oh I love the old window frame . I would show it off also.
    and the old basket to hold your faded fabric is so cottage chic, I never thought about keeping my old fabric to fade out in the sun.
    so glad I found your blog

  11. Love the leaded glass and you faded fabric collection looks nice in the basket, and maybe I need to hold some of mine in a basket too.

  12. Oh, that leaded glass is gorgeous! And displaying your vintage fabric is such a fabulous idea. Mine is all tucked away. I may have to re-think that!

  13. Great finds! That leaded glass is absolutely stunning. It inspires me to get out of the house today, and look for a few items for myself. :)

  14. Lovely! What will you do with that precious leaded glass?! Love the basket too! Oh, Fall is on it's way here and it is my favorite season, but so sad to see summer go. Happy Spring!

  15. Awesome finds as always, Meg. Thank you for sharing them at Revisionary Life!
