Old Window

Remember I showed you this old window at the end of my post yesterday? Still disregard the date stamp on my photos...

The two crowns I painted, the sheet of paper with french royal crowns is glued on and the other stuff I stenciled.

What do you think? I'm linking up with http://frenchcountrycottage.blogspot.com/ for Feathered Nest Friday. Some serious home and garden inspiration going on over there!


Today I am Thankful to continue to find awesome blogs!

I love what you did to this window. That color is so pretty. This is my first time visiting, you have a wonderful blog. I'm in zone 5ish and what I can plant is somewhat limited, well if I want it to come back the following year. I'm your latest follower. When you have a moment I would love it if you stopped by my family's site for a visit. Have a great weekend!

Skeeter said...

I picked up 3 wooden windows when in TN about two years ago. I have yet to do anything with them. I have a plan but must talk hubby into it first. Sometimes, I must slowly work him into agreeing, hee hee....

A great pic of grandpa and the kids! What fun....

Beautiful amount flowering in your garden. Half way thru the season prune back petunias to bring on fresh growth, seems to help.
