Trash To Treasure

Our church is replacing our old windows with new ones, because the old ones weren’t energy efficient. The old ones were swirly stained glass, kind of dark, actually. So we had all these old panes of glass, some broken, needing to be gotten rid of.

So we gave some to Zimmerman Art Glass Factory in Corydon, and they came up with these items for us. They’ll keep the glass in storage, and anybody who wants something made from that glass can order it done.

We gave most of the rest to White Cloud Window. Artist/owner Roni Cravens said thank you by making this for us, now hanging in the entrance to the church:

I love my town.

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today with Charlie’s squash recipe.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A gift brings a better gift in return.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hi Marian,

    Beautiful products from trash! It is very pleasant to see all these beautiful products that are from trash and are supposed to be thrown already.

      Hi, Sarah! The congregation is very pleased that the windows live on in so many beautiful ways, and that we’re creating art instead of landfill. šŸ™‚
