Spotted: DIY Vintage Rug Runner

During my searches this week I found this awesome DIY Vintage runner tutorial over at Wit & Delight.  Sadly I haven't got beautiful wooden floorboards to surround such a runner but I will be keeping this in my Pinterest 'future home' folder for further reference...

I just love the colours in these rugs, looks so good with the crisp white walls and wooden floors.... swoon!!

The stained Glass cabin of... Neile Cooper

This fabulous stained glass cabin is the work space of super talented stained glass artist Neile Cooper from New Jersey.  Neile sells her hand made stained glass item on etsy.... which she makes is her beautiful stained glass workshop in the woods behind her house in Sparta New Jersey.

Neile became a stained glass window maker but when the recession hit and the work dried up Neile instead decided to make jewellery

 “Part of the inspiration for doing this cabin was that I missed doing large scale work," she says. "I wanted a big project that I could really immerse myself in. If no one was going to hire me to make windows, I would just make them for myself.”

The windows were salvaged by Neile and her mother from craigslist and car boot sales and her partners dad helped put the construction together....

Neile spends her first hour and a half of the day in the cabin doing yoga and drinking coffee..... Perfect!!!!
