Readers from Folksy may already know that Susan from Diomo Glass made a beautiful small glass window panel for a giveaway on her Facebook page. I loved it so much I said that if I didn't win it I would have to commission one.
I didn't win, so true to my word I asked her to make one for me. The original had a lovely deep red rose which I loved. However I am decorating my house (I think I may have mentioned that before once or thrice) and the living room is going to be white with one dark wall painted 'dusted damson'. I got the inspiration from a lovely purple fleece throw a friend gave me for my birthday. I've bought a rug that matches and the curtains are white with pink and purple poppies.
So my panel has a purple rose. Susan did a rose and a poppy for me to choose from and though I liked the poppy I just loved the petal arrangement on the rose so much that I chose that one.
Here it is hanging in my window. The light shines through it perfectly and the colour goes perfectly with the poppies on the curtains.
