For the Love of Old Windows

You know what I’ve been crushing on lately… yep, old windows.  I’ve got a collection of gorgeous projects done with them, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be lovin’ them too.

    I had so many windows on the farm and when we moved away and were trying to sell off things, apparently someone decided they could sneak out there one day and took a stack of windows about 3 feet high that would make some wonderful decorating. In the meantime, living near a dumpster, whenever i see someone hauling these beautiful things away, I ask for them. I am currently decorating my bedroom with old windows above my bed for a headboard, painted light grey and old shutters on either side above my old end tables {mismatched of course] So many wonderful things to do with old leftovers and such a pity people throw away. Have a wonderful fun day.

      I couldn’t agree with more! I found this amazing old wooden and glass door that had been left when an old (very OLD) home near me had been torn down.
      Now, mind you, in order to get to this door I had to climb over much rubble, most of it brick and cement! All this … while in heels and a business suit … I was on my way home from the office…
      It was Soooo worth it!! I struggled it get it into my car then stored it safely away in the barn….
      Two weeks later, when I finally had time to give my project my full attention, I went out to get it, and to my horror … IT WAS NOT THERE!!!! I could feel that foreboding feeling… you know the one … your heart drops to your stomach … of course you just stand there, your mouth agape, eyes huge as a silver dollar, are glazed and simply staring at an empty space … the space where THE BEAUTIFUL OLD (VERY OLD) DOOR WITH WINDOWS should have been!
      I must have been standing there like that for a few seconds because the next thing I know my husband is at my side talking to me in this strange language … or so I thought! I just wasn’t thinking clearly at that particular moment…So when I was finally able to think somewhat rationally, I asked if he had any knowledge of that “empty space”….
      “Well of course I do” , there was an old funky door there so I took it with me to work last week and threw it in the dumpster! …… errrrr…. OH NO HE IS NOT FINISHED YET! Please read on… it gets worse .. “.. And can you believe it? HE ASKS ME! “Some woman pulled up and grabbed it faster than I had put it in!”…
      I was …. I cannot begin to explain what I was!
      I just gave him a big hug, kissed him and told him I loved him and how very grateful I was to be married to him!
      He just looked at me sort of confused, smiled , and walked away shaking his head.
      MEN! Ya just gotta love ‘em!
