A New View

Remember the birthday package I received from my
Dear Friend Genie
This lovely silk rose was laid on top of all the
tissue wrapped treasures
when I opened the box.
I wanted to show everyone
what fun thing I found to do with it.
While Hubby is on vacation this week and next,
we have lots & lots to do around this
Old House.
A couple of days ago
Sweet Hubby
Wonderful Son~In~Law
tore down an old shed in the backyard
in preparation for a new fence.
They left up the back wall until the fence panels arrive tomorrow.
We have to keep our precious doggies in the yard.
I really should have taken a picture of the whole shed.
It was adorable in its day.
When my daughters were little they used it as a playhouse.
Although Scott {Sweet Hubby}
grew up in the house next door,
he was uncertain when the shed was built.
When they tore up a piece of carpeting someone laid on the concrete
the date surfaced.
July 7, 1962
was scratched into the concrete.
Scott was born in September of 1960.
He has no memory of the shed not being there.
Since it is a part of his childhood history
 both of my daughter's childhood history
I just had to salvage a window.
It found it's new home in my upstairs office
{where I sit and blog with all of you}.
While rummaging in a closet a few days ago,
I found some strips of fabric I had sewn together years ago.
Who knows what I was originally going to do with it!
I was tickled
when I discovered the strip fit perfectly
across the top window pane.
I know the pictures of the window are not ideal
due to the glare on the glass
as I am sure you have all noticed
I am not the world's best photographer!
Hope this gives you an idea of how cute it is.
I just love the new view from this old window :~}

P.S.~ July 7th is a special date to me.
It is my Dear Mother's Birthday.
Happy Day to All of You,


  1. That is the cutest thing Danette! How sweet to save something that is a part of Scott's childhood. Sweet memories. :)

    1. Thank you Kar!
      I am into childhood memories :)))
      I love old better than new usually.

  2. wow this looks really nice, thank you for sharing :))

    1. Thanks Tammy!
      I had no idea what I would do with it and Scott wasn't sure why on earth I would want it but he liked it in the end as well. I can easily do something different eventually if I choose. But I kind of like it for now :)
      So glad to visit with you again!

  3. I love how you rescued the window, such a great idea. It looks perfect in your space. How fun that your husband grew up next door.
    Hugs to you Danette,

    1. Thanks Meredith! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow! Am I right ~ is your birthday on the 3rd?
      My Mother in Law, who just turned 87 in June still lives next door. My youngest daughter, Chelsea lives 2 doors over the other way, and my daughter Hilary moved in across the street on Saturday. Life is GOOD :)))
      Hugs Back at Ya,

  4. Good idea to save the window. So many things you can do with them. Yours looks great in its new space and whats better is that it has a story to go with it. Enjoy your weekend!
