So let me tell you where I got those old windows. It all began when I happened upon the Jackson Resale Factory one innocent day. These windows totally caught my eye, but they wanted much more than I was willing to hand over. (Probably $20 each or so). I kept going back to the store every couple of months to check things out and those windows were always there. I couldn't believe it. Finally they said I could have them for just $5 each! Good things really do come to those who wait! Now fast forward to yesterday. The same place, a place I've come to know and love *sniffle, sniffle* shut it's doors. Everything on Saturday was FREE FOR THE TAKING. Doors opened at noon. I called my junkin' buddy Marie, but she was knee-deep in a kitchen makeover for her daughter-in-law. Hmmmm... I'll see if my "neighbor grandpa" wants to come with me! He's fun to have around and probably needs to get out of the house. I called and asked if he could be over in 10 minutes.
Not sure he'll ever agree to such a thing again...
|Pretty sure I also picked this ladder up at the same place for $5.|
Neighbor Grandpa had my back then too, and "sturdied" it up for me.
|I never really intended to bring it in to my home, it was part of my display at a craft show originally.|
|When I finally brought them home last fall.... yes there is paneling in one of the panes. Who cares?|
|The old farmhouse painting is one of my mom's originals from way back. I wish there was a date on it, but there's not. I'm sure I could sell it for big money to an antique dealer. Okay, maybe not.|
Since I'm not sure my neighbor Grandpa will ever want to join me again for such an adventure, can I call YOU next time the junk stores are calling my name??
On second thought, I don't think he's had that much fun since I smuggled him cookies into the hospital after his gall bladder surgery... I just might finally have myself a junkin' buddy.
If you haven't entered the
yet, head over there now! Two days left!
