Ebay wins: sunrise windows & violin chairs

This week we got some more stained glass... I've been holding back on bidding for glass in recent months as we've already got quite a lot, and prices seem to have gone up since the early heydays of Ebay UK. But when I saw these I couldn't resist as it reminded me of the sun ray wooden motifs in Tallin, plus the colours go well with the set of 18 we've already got (see here at bottom).

sunrise windows

From the description:
"Two 1930's art deco mountain sunrise stained glass windows in pine wood frame. Each measures approx 19" x 20". Beautiful shiney textured stained glass colours are emerald green, orange, blue, yellow and pale green. All glass is in good condition"

A few weeks before this we also got two more chairs. Not that we needed more chairs, but these were really cheap and they reminded me of my old violin. I envisage them painted in some muted blue/green/purple colour, on the verandah. Functional yet beautiful, except for the legs but they can be easily replaced.

violin like chairs

From the description:
"Beautiful carved hall/kitchen chairs, two matching. They look to be in light oak. The back has a heart shape carved and an ornate shape which makes them very pleasing to the eye. They'd look fantastic in any environment and are very comfortable to sit on"
