New Windows! Yay!

Our new windows were installed last week. What a job! We were really pleased at how fast the old windows were taken out (100 year old windows) and the new ones installed. The guys from Richmond Window Corp (plug plug) were terrific, fast, efficient, neat, and nice, and they're right in my neighborhood. What a great combination. It was painless for us. They set up shop on the sidewalk in front of the house, did the trim to order. We got black trim and love the way it looks. What's really nice is that we can see out of the windows. My studio is all back in order, well, not exactly, because I haven't put away the supplies that I brought back from the Mail Art workshop I did yesterday. I just plopped everything on the table and floor. BUT the new windows, ah, what a sight. C saved 3 of the windows to use the old glass in his art work. Antique glass will definitely have some interesting quality when fired. Our house is 100 years old this year. We're thinking it needs a birthday party before the year is over. What do you think?

Speaking of recycled glass.... can Hubby use that sea-frosted glass found on the beach?

Sea glass, I love sea glass. I'll have to ask about how that's work in C's glass constructions and let you know. Check out: www.chuckscalin.com to see images of glass assemblages.

Wow, hundred-year old windows? That’s quite a lot of history there! I’m sure they looked great in C’s artwork. It’s a good thing that you changed your windows though. Time isn’t always kind to windows. I also hope your new windows have been holding up against the harsh weather we’re having these past few years!
