Lookie what I got!

From this. . .





to this!




Can you believe it?
I picked up my yard conservatory from Linda yesterday. Isn't it wonderful? I took those old windows to her and she worked her magic on them. When we replaced the old wood windows in our house several years ago I saved a few of them, not having any idea what I would do with them - now I wish I had save them all! (there had to have been at least 50 pieces!) And to think every time hubby cleaned out the garage he wanted to get rid of them but I just knew the right project would eventually come along. When I saw these cute little houses that Linda builds I knew that was it. She was so kind to use my old windows for my little house. She looked around my picturetrail site at pictures of my house to see what colors I like and she could not have done a better job if I had been standing over her watching each and every piece she put in. I just love it! And - with it on this corner of the porch, I can see it from my stitching chair! How perfect is that?
I haven't decided what plants will go in there so for now I re-located an ivy from the living room - I hope it doesn't decided to all of a sudden take a cold spell around here!
My friend, Sherry, went to Linda's site to look at pictures of my little house and found one for herself while she was there. She got the yellow one with the rooster on it. She picked hers up at the same time I did but she hasn't sent me a picture yet. Sherry doesn't have a blog yet, but I'm working on her!
Off to stitch and look at my little house!

It is just so beautiful, Tina. She is so talented. What a great piece and what makes it better is that the windows were from YOUR house.

That is so cool - it came out really nice, and what a great way to recycle old windows!
