My Triple Vase

My Triple Vase

Photo: Kristi Palma

This is one of many windows that I've done. It is a recycled window that I got from the side of the road, some scraps of glass from a Church window company and lots of shards of glass, glass, glass!

It's my way of lightening load in the landfills! Plus, it's pretty to look at! More to come hopefully.  Thanks for looking!

I love pouring over all of the posts that have popped up over the past week, great way to kick off a Sunday. I'm always amazed and delighted at the talent and creativity that lives in all of you and grateful that you are all so willing to share your gifts with the junk family here on JMS. This week our featured member (new to the site) is New2nc69 and her beautiful triple vase. Lovely, huh?! This piece is truly a work of art. All of your efforts paid off big time, New2nc69. Congrats!

Again, a BIG thanks to all members, old and new for sharing yourselves and your talented junking ways. Cheers!

I don't have the measurements with me.... they are small, 1 is plain and 2 have six panes. I was thinking of picture frames.... any other ideas? And I would love to see more pictures. :)
Thanks!

Speaking of which, I'm a member of a green social network and they're running some cool artsy contests...one is called "Choose To Reuse" -- you should definitely enter this piece!!
