A Bit of Stained Glass in the Dining Room.......

 I want to Thank Jody and Stan over at Rooted in Thyme for featuring my post, Fall and Halloween Wreaths, from last week's Simple and Sweet Fridays!
Thanks so much Jody and Stan!!

I am working hard trying to finish decorating my Living Room for Fall.........

But I wanted to share one of my new finds and one of the changes that I have made to our Dining Room......

Recently, I showed you my "new" Curios that I "inherited" from a dear neighbor.

Notice that I hung curtains over the pass through into the Kitchen.........
I have had this look for many years as I wanted to block the view of the Kitchen from the Dining Room and vice versa......

At a church Flea market several weeks ago, I found this beauty for $20!!
A stunning piece of Stained Glass.......

I knew just where I wanted to put it.......
I wanted to make it look like a window ...........
So I hung the drapes around it , just open enough to see the Stained Glass piece......
I think it makes the perfect statement in my very Victorian looking Dining Room!!
It has beautiful colors in it.......
But wait.......
Let me show you it with the lights on in the Kitchen .......
And photos taken in Candle Light Mode......
Much better........
 Honestly, These photos do not do it justice......
Now you can see the colors better!!
So that is how it looks from the Dining Room side......
You may be wondering how this looks from the Kitchen side......
I did not want the rose colored curtains showing on the Kitchen side so I kept the white lace curtains that I had hanging there before the stained glass piece but just moved them to each side to hide the rose curtains that you see in the Dining Room!!
This way you only see the white lace curtains from the Kitchen Side......
Again, let me show you how it looks lit up using the candle light mode on my camera.....
I LOVE it!!
I think it was the best $20 that I ever spent!!!
I am really enjoying decorating for Fall which is my FAVORITE Season of the year!!

Last year, I did not decorate for Fall or Halloween because of a major Remodel that involved most of our downstairs.......

So I have been planning this Fall Tree for 2 years now!!!!!
 Buying ornaments on Clearance after Christmas and at Thrift Stores.......
 Also buying pretty glittery Florals on Clearance after the Season was over......
 And now, I finally was able to create this Elegant Fall Tree in my Living Room for my most favorite Season of the year......

I used my 7 foot Tree that I use for Christmas and Valentine's Day!!

I hope you liked your Sneak Peak!!  LOL!!!
