Dad was going to throw away this old window from my childhood home but thanks to the Junk Market gals, I snatched it quickly, repainted it, distressed it, added the knobs and use it to display my grandmothers silver and my moms famous cookie recipe, as well as a picture of them, in my kitchen. The window provides good memories while eating dinner. 
Its an opportunity to change out with the seasons and holidays too!

Your window is such a great memory idea. The fact that you can change it over, is very cool. Thanks for posting! Posted: 7:24 am on September 19th

I like the stencil(?) that you have above the window...or is it one of the rub-on sayings that you can buy on line? I think it really adds a nice touch to the wall. Talk soon, Georgia Posted: 7:16 pm on September 18th
Countryinthecity writes: junkinhart - I added a close up photo. The wire from the beads is extended and swirled at the top so I used thread and thumb tacked it to the back of the window. The thread is barely noticeable. Thanks for asking! Posted: 10:54 pm on September 17th

This is so beautiful! I'm glad you snatched the window from Dad. I adore being surrounded by memories and this is certainly a wonderful way of doing it. Now if only I could read that cookie recipe. Hmmm....

Be well,
