Don't throw out that old window!

I thought I'd share a really fun alternative to the everyday photo frame. I first saw this done at a cherry orchard and winery we visit every summer a couple of years ago. I put mine next to my entryway so i added coat hooks and its been so practical. I created this project before i had the digi bug or pse otherwise you may find scrapbook pages here lol.

This is such an easy project. I used my window as is curtain hooks and all. Simply add something to the back so it can hang. Print your photos and adhere them using your favorite adhesive. I used tape...then switched to glue dots. Also i guesstimated the size of the glass...hence the photos are slightly smaller. Actually at the time the program i used probably only gave me the printing option of 4x6, 5x7 etc. but it would be really easy fix in the program i have now. I'll have to do that as soon as i get my new printer.

See what been blooming in my garden? I had to bring some fresh flowers inside to enjoy! This time of year is so exciting. I always have something new blooming! And oh is my poor garden a mess....When i started my gardens i only had one child and was not into scrapping so it was much easier to keep up with. Now i have 3, one more on the way and can't seem to pull myself away from the pc for more than a few minutes at a time lol. Oh well weeds deserve a chance to live too right?

Thanks for stopping by!
