No, I really didn't dive into a dumpster!
Silly -- that would mess up my already-frizzy hair, wouldn't it!?
On the way home from a run [What? You didn't know I've taken up running?? More walking than running really, but it still counts!], I saw this great window with lovely leaded glass, some broken, of course, and the frame is kind of wonky, but it just called out to me.
Since it was in the trash lane, I figured it needed a new home, and if I didn't nab it, someone else would. Mr. Tennis was only slightly surprised to see me carting home this big honking broken-up window, but even he appreciated its beauty!
Now, I'm not sure what to do with it . . . well, except to fix the glass, re-caulk it, sturdy up the frame a bit somehow and paint it. Please feel free to offer any and all advice. After it magically becomes a treasure, it may take up residence on our screened-in porch. Stay tuned!
What do you think? Trash? Or Treasure?
