The eagle has landed.

.

Our neighbor, she of the new stained glass hobby, invited us down to her house to take a look at her work. Not being one to arrive empty handed I brought this….

.

A bottle of wine from one of our trips. I planned to ply her with alcohol and drive the price of the eagle I had my eye on down.

.

.

The picture she’d sent me made the piece look quite large… and though in reality it wasn’t, it still turned out to be a nice addition to the man cave.

Below the WWII propaganda posters.

Proudly guarding our bar. (And yes, I got the 20% friends and family discount.)

.

Neighbors be crafty.

It started innocently enough with me texting our neighbor this picture.

.

She’s a retired psychiatrist who’s taken up stained glass as a hobby. While I appreciate the work that goes into such things, I’ve never been a fan of those run of the mill sun catchers… and the few pieces of her work that I’d seen left a lot to be desired.

So when I saw that fun pot of glass agave leaves, I passed it along because she’s always looking for ideas. Next thing I knew she was texting me pictures of some of her latest projects…

.

.

And I have to say….

.

.

Her work has come a long way. (That frog!❣️)

I was so impressed with this owl I offered to buy it, but sadly she had already given him away. But then she sent me this…

.

.

And the husband fell in love, immediately pondering its placement the man cave. While I’m thinking this eagle might be a little large, our neighbor now wants us to visit her studio and browse. She even offered us a custom made piece. How great is that!
