So I had an encounter with the King of Junk . Yes…Yes I did! It was a very prosperous day here for this Toots. I was one lucky girl this time…A full load arrived. Yes…DELIVERED right to my door!!! Now there is nothing better than having Junk Delivered!!! I had to contain myself as I was so very excited...I just wanted to dig right in! But alas...I held my composure, and used my manners...until I was alone...then it was ON!
AHHHHHH...sometimes it's good to be of direct decent to the King of Junk and Silliness (and his teeny Queen) ...VERY GOOD INDEED.
Wanna see??? I know you do!
I am in LOVE with old windows.
CHECK out the patina on the wood!!! I love the character…
What’s that? Pardon me?
You want to know what I have hanging from the pane?
It is a resin scroll of the Lord’s Prayer. I love that piece.
I know what you are thinking….”ya cudda washed the windows Toots”
I love the 'dirt' on them! I did hose them down…outside with a sharp blast of water…I also used a scraper to remove some of the ‘ick’ (okay lets just be honest here…Pigeon Poop) from them. But, for the most part, I like them a bit dirty. (funny thing for a clean freak to say isn't it? lol)
I do plan to hang some greenery from the windows too...I think it needs a little something...will update when I get just the right idea!
Did I mention that there are THREE of these beauties???? Yes there are! I love them. I hung the one behind the piano and one of the ones in the front entryway. The third is propped against the wall on an angle.
I had to laugh (okay maybe not laugh but I did say a word that made my kids giggle) at the mess I made of my house just trying to decide where to display my windows. What a disaster area this place became. Every little thing about the front entry changed…I added a lamp…light colored accessories…lol…all for a dirty window. haha!
I love the old storm windows. I think they tell a story as they stand. The weather they have endured…the sights they have shared with those who peer through them…
I have several smaller versions of these old storm windows outside that used to be built into my old greenhouse. I may need to make use of them too…!
Isn't a total home make over fun? I have been having a blast re-doing my entire home...just the way I like it. Thrifted, hand made, and unique!
Thanks for tuning in today!!! I have loads of photos to share with you guys. I have been working my little Tootsie fingers to the bone…making new things from old…improving on my own ideas, writing, painting, upholstering, planning and playing in the dirt! I will be a busy girl, posting and sharing this week!
Until next time!
