After I posted the French window earlier this week, my dear friend, Shirley from Paper and Threads (http://www.paperandthreads.com/) wrote and generously offered to share some of her INCREDIBLE windows and doors from her trips to Italy. I was so overwhelmed with joy --- !! Not only do I love windows, arches, and doors -- but from ITALY!!! Home of my dreams! I was honored and so so very grateful -- THANK YOU SHIRLEY!!
This is painted from one of Shirley's windows .... I hope I've done it justice. The 'grillwork' was actually a light gray color from leaded glass -- but I couldn't get the window to 'read' as such, and so I changed it a bit to read as grillwork -- also very much part of those incredible Italian windows.
