Snowflake Window

Begin doing what you want to do now.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand
and melting like a snowflake.
- Sir Francis Bacon Snowflake Window - Part 5 of 5

This window was salvaged from a house in Wileville (just outside of Bridgewater, NS) that was being renovated. The window was repaired and repainted white. I added snowflakes in white, pink, and pale mauve. I etched the inspirational words by hand using a dremel. The words are courtesy of Sir Francis Bacon...from over 400 years ago!

$150 Window measures 25 5/8 inches wide x 39 5/8 inches high. (sorry...can't be shipped!)
