I have an obsession with old windows.
As I cause a traffic jamb on the side of the road, shoving them in the back of my jeep, I feel giddy with the possibilities. Even though most of them collect in my shed, much to my husbands dismay, I do eventually use them when I feel inspired. Here is proof that it's totally worth the honks and evil stares from those cranky drivers.

In the Summer, I did a u-turn for this beauty! What to do with this one?!? I have a vision to put it above my fireplace once I get sick of my botanical prints. Not sure when that will be though.

So as this amazing window sits in the shed for the winter, I decided to get my hands on a smaller window that is just too cute for words. No picture of that because my shed is too embarrassing to show you all, but this is what I hope to create with my next 'trash to treasure'.
Now, mine will be a bit different. I hope to remove the glass panes and put mesh or screen on the entire back for my ever growing collection of earrings. I haven't decided if I will do a shelf of not, we will see how ambitious I get. Look for photos of this project soon, but not too soon :)
Do any of my fantastic readers have other creative ideas for old windows?
I would love to hear!
