Friday My Town Shoot Out: Windows & Doors

Topic this week for Friday My Town Shoot Out is Doors & Windows. I admit to taking a few shortcuts and using file photos this week. I just didn't take the time to get out, but I did enjoy having my daughter and grandchildren here for the week.

This window hangs at the top of the picture window in my living room. My husband bought it at an auction. It had some broken panels and started life at the top of a window in an old house. He deconstructed it, put it back together and framed it just for me. I've always liked stained glass. I'd love to be able to custom build a home and use it wherever I wanted.



Here is the door on the fire box of a steam tractor,



this is what's behind the door when the engine is ready to work,



and this is what could be behind the door when the engine is being safety checked.



I think the windows and doors on my pink 1962 Thunderbird are pretty classy.



Here is what I saw one day when walking up to my daughter's front door (before she moved to Oklahoma). You just have to take the picture before it's gone, thus the quality. Still in my book, it's a keeper.

You take your shots when you find them!

Who is the handsome man fixing your engine?

You certainly have a very good and helpful husband to fix that stain glass window for you.

Am I jealous??? LOL

Wow, I had never seen a fire box and an old steam engine. That was exciting. Loved the stain glass windows and of course that little face pressed against the glass.

The babies always press their faces against the glass and make the funniest spectacle don't they? It's too funny! And who is that "hot stuff" in your fire box? Unique pictures and a terrific shoot out, pink t-bird lady! =D

Beautiful stained glass window! Who else would have thought about the door to a steam engine?? Or the safety check guy crawling out of it - fabulous indeed!

Gordon said...

That guy in the firebox can't be getting healthy from that. Nice take on the door theme.

Zaroga said...

Great pictures... each and every one. I love the last one. I took some pictures of our dog through a window screen one time while she was having a good ole time rolling in the grass. I'm glad I did.

Carrie said...

What a great shoot-out! You have some humorous shots here. I love the stained glass window and the gift your husband gave by fixing it for you!
