~shhh, don't tell~


well peeps, look at this cache of old windows I found




pretty sweet huh!

lots of groans and moans about spiders and such from kids in the van

{same kids who refused to get out and help mom haul more junk!}


some of them still have glass, like this cute little door




others are just the wood, like this 3 pane




~lots of chippy paint~




~especially like this one~




love the curve along the top corner




hauled them round the side of the house till i can show them some love
~but shhh, don't tell~

 Mr Keeper doesn't know they're there yet!!

So the paint chips ratted you out...giggle. Your windows are perfect and I am sure you will embellish them and create something completely charming out of them.
I am still interested in your lovely pillows, and would love to meet and select a few. Email me with a time that is convenient for you and I to get together.
Have a perfect week girlfriend...xox...Rosie

Oh, you lucky girl! If Mr. Keeper puts up too much of a stink, I'll take the tall one off of your hands. I'm sure shipping from Canada would be next to nothing. Hehe!

Happy Wednesday!

Hey Tracey! I would be happy to answer questions about your new camera...if I can, I'm pretty pitiful at it so far! lol
I LOVE chippy windows too...have LOTS of them in my house! One is hanging above my fireplace right now, with apothecary jars on each side filled with seashells. :)
What cha' gonna do with yours?
