Stained Glass at Glencairn Museum in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania

Glencairn is now a museum,
but once served as the home of
Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn.

It is hard to imagine that at one time this place was a residence
with such intricate stained glass. 

Perhaps the Glencairns had the future in mind
when they built their home. 

Because today,
while also serving as a museum,
there are other events of interest here. 

I posted about the Medieval Festival held at Glencairn here
or you can view photos here.

Oh, to live in a house with a window like this -I think I would be (already:) ) in heaven (smile). Love this stark blues in it.

You certainly captured the color and light of the stained glass in an exquisite way.

These are very pretty windows, Rebecca. Good pictures too! The blues are soooooo vivid in the bottom one.
Happy MidWeek Blues!
BTW, you are missing a label for MidWeek Blues. I had been getting last weeks all evening so finally I decided to visit your blog without using the label search.

I love stained art glass too. They make for gorgeous pictures, especially close ups!! We have plenty of them here in the churches in Germany, each window narrating the stories from the Bible.
