going "old school"



wow.....it's been over a month since i have been on here. yikes!!!

ok so a few weeks a ago super, wonderful friend of mine said "i have something for you!" and i of course got super excited!!!!!! well this isn't my normal flip job but it's just as wonderful if you ask me! :) also you know what a hard time i have parting with my projects....uhhmmm... yes you've got it.... this one is staying right here in my house! my friend got her hands on some old windows that were taken out of the school house where she teaches. (isn't she wonderful to think of me?!?!) i think YES!!! these windows are estimated to be from the 1940's .....the building they were taken from was an old army barrack! pretty cool huh??? well anyway they are the perfect accent for my game room :) i cleaned them up a bit....by clean i mean i dusted them...and that's it. my daughter asked "mom aren't you going to paint them?" my reply "are you kidding me...that would ruin them!" lol...so now they hang nicely above my bars on either side of the sink and i have placed pictures in them and i plan to put some patterned scrapbook paper in a few of the open spaces.. i just have to decide what colors. hope you love them as much as i do! oh and thanks again to my wonderful friend...you know who you are ;)
