Did you ever see a space and just knew automatically what should go there?
That is how I felt when we first looked at this house.
I knew right away if we purchased the place what I would hang in this opening between the living room and hallway.
A very treasured piece that had been part of my life for years!
My grandmothers stained glass window!
This window was directly at the bottom of her stairs that led to the second floor.
The stairway had one of those great banisters for sliding down!
Many times I was warned to quit sliding down that railing or I would woosh right out the window!
(The warning didn't stop me!)
The window faced to the east.
Every morning the sun light poured through the colored glass.
It filled the stairway with all kinds of bright colors!
When my grandmother passed, my aunt and uncle removed the window while cleaning out her house.
I know it was a sore spot between my parents and them for years.
My uncle had it framed.
It hung in there patio window for years and years.
My aunt and uncle has since passed.
While cleaning out their house, my cousin gave it back to my dad.
Sadly my parents never really had the proper place to hang it.
It has sat in their attic for a few years.
After we bought the house,I showed them the space where I thought it would look perfect.
They couldn't have agreed more!
I brought it home.
The pipeliner hung it for me.
It sure brought tears to my eyes!
It has found its home once again!
Grandma would be so happy!
