PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES!
I have always wanted a glass garden room or a glass greenhouse. When I saw the one in the movie "Practical Magic" I wanted one even more. They are very popular in England , because of so much rain it is nice to have a place to sit and feel like you are outside.
I adore the old Victorian Greenhouses. They were used of course, for growing the flowers and produce for the large households. It must have been wonderful in the middle of winter standing in those sunny glass houses smelling the earth and watching the seedlings pop their heads out of the soil.
Although I am sure there are still many glass houses used for gardening they are becoming much more popular as actual rooms on homes. A place to sit and dream of warmer days.
One day I will have one, not to sit in, but to grow some lovely flowers and start my vegetables for the spring. I have been stock piling old windows and when I have enough I will have my glass house.
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
