  1. I love Stain Glass.. this is GORGEOUS! I feel like a slug today. I laughed a little because stain glass always reminds me of Seattle where I grew up, and slugs are HUGE in Seattle!

    Thanks for stopping by, do you know where I Left my gumption? LOL

  2. Lovely, just lovely! It's understated but yet oh, so elegant. Wonderful job.

  3. They're all beautiful!

    Nice to meet you on the A to Z.

  4. What an incredible collection. The rainbow version is my favorite, but my heart did somersaults for the pink ribbon...

  5. hope is a wonderful word, especially when the object of the hope is Jesus.

    the works in where you have done some of the large background pieces and m. woman has done some of the smaller are the ones that have a special quality, with the exception of the first one, where the background is the best part of the expression, to me.

  6. These are great! So glad to see another visual AtoZer!
