An Old Window = A Great Picture Frame

Another great find at an antique mall in Amish country. Are you getting tired of hearing about Amish country yet or seeing all of my great finds? Well, I bought this old window for $5.00 and it still has the glass in it too. I decided to keep the prim look, but use it as a place for all of my pictures of my little miracle baby Cameron. So, I took some construction paper.....yep, it was the same color of my walls and added the pictures and then into the window they went. I thought it turned out pretty cute. I know that some people just decorate their windows with some rusty star garland or some greenery, but I thought it was a neat idea to use it for some of my many pictures that I have of my son. He is a very special little boy. After years and years of trying, a loss of a child in 2004 and years of infertility treatments, we conceived Cameron through IVF. He is the light of my life and my whole world. I indeed wouldn't know what to do without him. You can check out my other blog which is totally dedicated to living my life with my husband and our sweet little 2 year old boy.

That is so cute and a really neat idea! I too love old windows. They seem to be pretty popular for country/primitive decorating. Thanks for the idea ~ I'll have to get busy on one. :)

Love and hugs,
