What the postman put through our letterbox today!

A couple of weeks ago I began a dialogue with someone I had met through one of the groups I belong to (BBEST) whose shop is called Clingingimages.  Here you are able to purchase designer window clings with stained glass effects.  This seller has many in her shop but also enjoys custom designing.  This is exactly what I wanted.

We have a window half way up our stairsWindow from top of landing in which the previous occupants of the house had placed some clings.  These over the years had faded and, although still attractive, I wanted something more akin to our own taste with a design with our stamp on, so to speak.  After several communications to describe what I wanted, giving the dimensions etc I received an email with a selection of clings from which I could choose.  How cool was that?

My husband and I decided which one was our favourite and placed the order.  Without further ado the clings were produced to exactly the size I wanted and followed the description beautifully.  So, when they arrived today I just couldn’t wait to open up the envelope.looking up

There, beautifully packaged with full instructions on how to apply, remove and care for the clings, were our new clings!  Straightaway, I cleaned the window panes so that they would be squeaky clean and allow me to place the clings carefully where I wanted them.Close up 

I so enjoyed working on the ideas for these clings and this was made all the more enjoyable an experience with the great communications prior to settling on the final version.

Now to stand back and admire!

What a wonderful way to beautify your house. You will enjoy that window for many moons and for a fraction of the cost and labor of a real stained glass window.
Just beautiful!!
