so easy, lelly can do it...

do you know beth? if you don't, you should! she is a Southern girl (which i am NOT. well, i've been posing as one for the past 17 years. and, i've even learned to love grits. but, i digress...)

beth is the inspiration for the latest project in my house which brings me absurd amounts of giddiness...



this photo, sadly, doesn't do it justice...


i have had this collection of old windows hanging around in my garage (in great peril, i might add, since my husband and my son are like the ubiquitous bulls in a china shop.) i've really wanted to turn them into something, but there they have sat, for over a year.

i saw a very cool idea on beth's blog, where she mounted photos in an old window. i loved the look! and she was kind enough to share her secret with me (clear photo corner mounts, people. did you know they even existed?)

one window up, several more to go. i'm open to suggestions. just remember my crafting motto: so easy, you know, lelly could do it!!

What a great idea! I always like the window hangings, but never knew what you did with them. They look a little weird just hanging on your wall, but not like that. That looks beautiful!

Oh, I love old windows and this is a beautiful way to use them. I may have to copy you two...

How cool! That is a great idea. I wish I had some old windows laying around...

Clever Beth! I didn't know about clear photo corners either - I'd have been at a loss to figure out how to do something like that. I'm thrilled that you've found a way to use something like your window frames. They look so unique. I can imagine something like that being hung up in some hyper trendy coffee bar!

I LOVE this. I don't think you can antique on the east coast and NOT fall in love with old windows. What a fantastic project!

I did this a few years ago with one of our family vacations....I will try to post it tomorrow so you can see.....
Fun to do, isn't it?!
Great job, btw!

Clear photo corners? Who knew? (I guess Beth did)
So cute Lelly. I can't wait to see the rest of your giddiness!
