Recent Blog Discoveries

recent blog discoveries -

Design Decoration Craft, formerly The Textile blog. As the name suggests there are many posts on textiles, but a search for stained glass does yield some interesting results and not necessarily in the posts directly having to do with stained glass. I found the post of tapestry designs by stained glass designers like Johan Thorn Prikker and Edward Burne-Jones especially interesting, as well as the various posts on A.W.N. Pugin, including one on wallpaper designs by A.W.N. Pugin.

I heard about the textile blog from stumbling upon another blog -
Rome of the West, a blog by a photographer named Mark S. Abeln, out of St. Louis, who mainly blogs about visits to local Catholic churches. The most interesting posts at first glance - 2 separate posts featuring decorative work by Rodney Winfield. One on Photos of Chapels at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, in Belleville, Illinois, and another on Photos of the Pere Marquette Gallery, at Saint Louis University. Both these sites are fairly close to me and I've never seen them. They are now officially on the list.
