“All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.” This quote by Walt Disney somehow inspires all of us and surely has a great influence over Neile Cooper’s life. She’s a jewelry designer and longtime stained-glass artist from Mohawk, New Jersey who has made a beautiful miniature house in the backyard of her home. Her beautiful fairytale-inspired glass abode is made from used home materials.
She shared her views with Creators regarding this home;
The glass cabin is my dream project, it is made almost entirely of reclaimed materials. Rafter beams from some fallen trees, lumber from a neighbor’s storm-damaged porch, and many, many old window frames.
Cooper loves to draw nature and fairy tale designs that are apparent in her art. The whole glass cabin is covered with giant stained-glass paintings of butterfly wings, owls, eagles, birds, leaves and flowers. Her choice of colors is implacable, which makes every glass painting so natural and alive.
She loves to spend her quality time in this cabin house with her cat and books. Neile also used beautiful lightning bulbs and her jewelry pieces for home’s interior decoration. Her glass cabin looks adorable and fascinating from inside out.
One more amazing thing about her glass cabin is that it looks magnificent in every season, and changing shades from sunrise to sunset can mesmerize anyone to fall in love with it, over and over again.
Gloomy out here today, but I’m thinking of sunny summer days, and contemplating inviting visitors to the cabin for overnight stays on Airbnb. Would anybody by interested? It would be pretty bare bones, more like a camping experience with no heat, no running water… I would love to hear your thoughts!!? #airbnb? #cabinlife #campout #newjersey #foggyday #tinyhouse #glamping #sussexcounty #sheshed #artistretreat
Beautiful day?. This is the same section of the cabin as in my photo last night, looking different with the sun shining in. ☀️ I love stained glass for the way it constantly changes as the light changes through the day. #stainedglasswindows #cabinlove #handmadehome #glasswall #reclaimedwindows #oldwindowframes #reuse #creativereuse #artofig #handcraft #madetocreate #beautifullight #glassart #glassdesigner #homesweethome #cabinporn #abmlifeiscolorful #cabinlove #artfulliving
“I sing the Equalities, modern or old, I sing the endless finales of things, I say Nature continues-Glory continues; I praise with electric voice; For I do not see one imperfection in the universe; And I do not see one cause or result lamentable at last in the Universe. O setting sun! Though the time has come, I still warble under you, if none else does, unmitigated adoration.” -Walt Whitman
