Remember awhile back…

…when I presented this Prairie Style house?

Well, I was walking up Sherwin Avenue yesterday (to get to the grocer’s) and happened to be on that side of the street…and the lighting (it was ‘noonish’) happened to be spectacular…and I happened to stop in my tracks!

The front windows under that ‘Prairie Style Overhang’ happened to jump out and cry, “Oh…take our picture, please…pretty, pleeeease!”…so I did…and happened to find some of the most fantastic ‘original’ early 20th century glass I have ever seen!  Take a look:

Have a closer peek at the rightmost window from a more ‘head-on’ angle:

Prairie Style-1 Window

Aren’t the distortions caused by the hand-laid glass fascinating?  I don’t know the exact age of this house, but would estimate it was built before 1920, and designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, if not Mr. Wright himself.  I’ll need to do some more research…introduce myself to the owners…perhaps they know some nice tidbits!

I WAS out and about today…

…shooting along the lake.

But, as this is when I begin my semi-annual cleaning (tearing EVERYTHING apart, washing paintings, woodwork, closets, floors, windows, blinds,cupboards…and taking every photo out of its frame and washing the glass on both sides), I will post sporadically, as I find it possible.

My favorite for the paintings, cupboards, woodwork and floors?  Murphy’s Oils Soap.

Lots of Windex for the glass.

True, a lot of work for this particular ‘growing-older’ disabled lady, BUT…it is a good habit, and one I’ve kept for most of my almost-66 years. (P.S.:  Thank you, Mother, for showing me how to clean properly!).

I’ll be here when I can, and thank you, all my followers and readers and ‘likers’…I appreciate you so very much…and love YOUR spaces, too!
