Ok, Sue.  Do you remember this lead window from about 2002 from Junk Market?  I spotted it for my friend, Laura, and she snatched it up.  They were in the middle of a remodel. Her dh custom built the sash to float the lead window in the large window.  This window is above their fireplace mantel also built by her dh.
The entire view of the leaded window built into the sash with the custom built fireplace below.  Her dh was in the remodeling business, therefore the perfection that this displays.

From time to time the team at JMS will highlight a member for posting a fabulous idea. This time around we send a big shout out to RenewLaura for her junked up fireplace creation. Thanks so much! We also want to congratulate every junker on this site for producing and sharing so many wonderful projects. You are A-MA-ZING! You should all give yourselves a big pat on the back. The JMS team is sending cyber pats your way as we speak. It gives me great pleasure to see that all here have truly embraced the recycle, reuse element of junking. I know all of your projects were born of junk, but there is nothing junky about the final result. Way to go! Until next time, I'll see you on the junk pile.

Be well,
Sue

RenewLaura writes: Hi Sue and everyone! It's so exciting to see photos of my house online. The urns in the picture also came from JunkMarket. After losing 6 expensive ivy topiaries, I had to go with fake. I ripped off most of the real (and sadly dead) leaves, and wound fake ivy into the form. Leaving a few dead leaves, and the pretty stems, makes them look more real. Those real ones can be a money pit and they require constant baby-sitting. Just ask Jamie.

You can't see the white glittered ball too well, but my dh calls it the Orb of Knowledge. It's a styrofoam ball from WalMart, covered with old pages ripped from an antique college poetry book. I Mod-Podged over the entire ball, then pressed old German mica into areas between the poems. It looks pretty good for less than $10, and can be rotated for seasonal poems.

My friend, Laura and I were talking via phone this a.m. and she mentioned how fussy she is with what she purchases, and that when she does make a purchase it has been something that has been timeless. Just what you said. Laura has great taste, and with a dh like that so talented, she's added some great things into her home. I just visited her yesterday, and started snapping to share.
Must be fun for you to see some of these beautiful things you've sold in your past with great homes!

Funny, but I do remember this window. The JM sales were filled with things I loved so I don't forget them. The best part for me is to see pieces from the sales employed in such loving,wonderful, and creative ways. I'd say this window sure found a good owner and a good home! Thanks for posting this.

Take care,

RenewLaura writes: It is beautiful! No need to be jealous Lani. Your house is fabulous, but she does have dh that was a builder, so that is the key! You can have a husband make your hair beautiful or your furniture. You can't have it all.
