I cannot even believe this is our house!
As we near the end of our "planned" renovation
I walked through the house this morning as I often do
for getting to live
in such a wonderful home
do you agree that windows are the soul of the home?
I would imagine that these storm windows were the bombdiggity at the time they were installed
can we say
as we set about to renovate 822 we replaced
EVERY SINGLE WINDOW
big expense? not really...we didn't replace the windows with windows but with
glass...windows are expensive but glass is cheap!
We splurged in a few areas
like the beveled diamond panes
in the front and in the turret
for a grand illusion!
inside the turret
inside the living room
and I just love stain glass...so it was a for sure
but you know? I bought these both for
there were 2 strange doors but rather than take out the cool wedding cake porches
we just put windows in..they are really my favorite!
these came from Ebay
my intentions were to take a stain glass class and make them
...but this works for now
what I love about old houses? the cute stuff that no one thinks about anymore
speaking of garage sales
I adore old windows
these will be the little windows that go in the new addition of our
"fancy lawnmower shed"
they will be put between glass and built in to protect them
seriously...I'm not exaggerating...I do have the exact figures stored away somewhere,
but I think $150 covered this window
it's no wonder I love to do the supper dishes in the morning!
This looks out into the backyard
we've come a looooong way!
it's a wonder I get any work done on my newspapers looking out this window!
do you have a favorite window in your house?
it's hard for me to choose, but I love this one in our guest bathroom
it's surrounded by ivy
and has the most pleasant view!
the glass block was here
we just built a shower around it!
this little window was here too...we just made it better
there are lots more windows in this old house
but that's kind of the tour...you're probably bored right now
me? I will never get bored with the windows at 822
they are probably the one thing that make me still say
