"Beautiful Bling From Tiffany's..."

...didn't always fit into that signature
turquoise blue box. :)
Some of the best treasures to me are the legendary
Tiffany windows
so meticulously designed
in gemlike colors of stained glass.
So...in light of that fact...
I present here
a Louis Comfort Tiffany inspired piece
made as a precursor for a multiple card ATC
"Tiffany Window Panels" swap
What an artistic family!
Louis Comfort Tiffany was the son of
Charles Lewis Tiffany (1812–1902),
known as the "King of Diamonds" and
founder of Tiffany & Company,
the fancy goods store
that became the renowned jewelry and silver firm
with the most spectacular diamonds
and
the famous blue boxes.
Happy Blooming Tuesday! :)

This is a beautiful atc Peg. I can't wait to see the rest of the series. I love the Tiffany lamps too. When a young friend of ours turned 21 we bought her a necklace from Tiffanys so that she would remember her special birthday. That blue box says so much to people that care about those things.
