Because they're not just for Valentine's Day

I'm still doing the solo parenting thing this week (and trying to squeeze in enough work hours in the midst of a shortened holiday week) so blogging time (and longer posts) remain a bit hard to come by. I couldn't miss Ruby Tuesday though - not with a whole batch of ruby red shots like this one just crying out for their 15 minutes in the sun.
.
Hope you're all having a great week, I'll be by to visit as soon as I can.
.
And on a not completely unrelated note, since several of you mentioned that you'd hang a shot like this one on your wall I've decided to list it for sale in my etsy shop where I hope it will live happily ever after providing inspiration on the wall of someone's sewing room. We'll call it bolts this time though ;).

Brilliantly colorful, Robin! You are so lucky to be going to Dublin over the Passover/Easter weekend! I've never been to the land of my ancestors... :'( Happy Ruby Tuesday though! :)

Jim said...

Robin, those are soooooooo pretty! The colors mix and match perfectly.
Besides I like stain glass.
A friend made me a wall mirror with a stained glass frame years ago. I still have it although now I cannot remember the occasion for the gift. She might still.

Happy RT!

Jim's Little Blog posts mentioning his trip to Ireland in case you have a minute to look.

We loved our B&B at Kilarney if you are staying there any.

Thanks. Unfortunately we don't have time to get out of Dublin this trip - but I'll definitely bear it in mind for next time, since we definitely want to see the rest of the country sometime.

1st time I've been to your blog. What a cute header you have! Love that red mixer too! :)

Ralph said...

The glass in colors is nice, especially the heart. The opaque and translucent rubies seem to show the loving character of this shape. Neat art and lovely sun catchers!

kaye said...

you are right they are beautiful

Titanium said...

The stained glass catches the light so neatly, so intrinsically.

Mine is here.

Patti said...

Very pretty stained glass. I love all the bright colors and certainly agree that hearts are not just for Valentine's Day!

It's gorgeous. Who's the artist? My Ruby Tuesday isn't artistic at all.

What a wonderful capture of color, contrasts, and light. I also like all the varied geometrics in this lovely photo.

Those stained glass hearts are really spectacular.

Good luck with the rest of the week of solo parenting. I'm guessing you are doing a stellar job. :)
