I love, love, love old windows.
I collect old windows.
I have quite a few old windows displayed in my home in various and assorted ways.
I have even more old windows living in the barn.
Last year, I found this calendar by Cavallini & Co.
I thought it would be fun to frame the pictures and put them in the greenhouse. It quickly became apparent that the high humidity level would not be kind to any sort of paper product, so the calendar found it's way to a shelf and spent the winter out of sight and out of mind.
Many months ago, while strolling through the archives of one of my very favorite blogging friends, I came upon this post featuring the very clever and fun idea of using an old window as a multi-picture frame. For quite some time, I've had my eye on the frame idea in this picture, but loved the old window idea even better. I filed it away in the fine mesh sieve that is my brain, otherwise known as the great idea graveyard.
About a month ago I came across one of my favorite barn exiled windows, and all of a sudden the stars aligned, the light bulb went on, and a project was born.
I have to say, the majority of my projects never make it to completion, but this one was quick and fun, my favorite kind of project, and I love how it turned out.
I love this combo too, so I'll be on the lookout for another triple window that will fit the bill.
Now, the fact that I don't have a specific spot to hang my new creation is a minor detail that I suppose will have to make for Part Five of this story. And it goes without saying that I am totally ignoring the fact that I spent the winter getting rid of absolutely everything that doesn't have a place in my home.
Totally ignoring that fact.
