The Botanical Window Returns

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that we started going through some of the many boxes we have in storage marked "PRINTS". We only made it through about half of the boxes before we called it an afternoon. We grabbed several prints that I thought I could use and brought the rest out of our storage space and into the main area of the lower level family room area. They're still wrapped in bubble and shrink wrap, waiting for me to figure out where they might go.

Poor Hubbs, he's the one that had the brunt of wrapping and boxing them all up. He did a great job, so good,  that it's hard to see through all that green cellophane to tell exactly what you're looking at. But one box that I knew I wanted to get into was extra long, and I was pretty sure this was inside!

My old window had been wrapped and padded, and just a little of the chippy white paint was more loose than before. Some of the individual botanicals had pulled away from the glass, but all in all, it was pretty well intact.

This pic is from my post from several years ago;
If you haven't read that post,
 be sure and click back to see how I found them.

So now it's in the Dining Room here at the new house. I'm not sure it will stay right here. Eventually I'd like to have some draperies on either side of this big window, but for now there's room.

I really love these high ceilings, but they make everything look so small!

I'm really glad to have this back.
 I've missed so many of my vintage things;
it just didn't seem like "home" without them.

Be sure and head back over here at 6 PM Central, Wednesday Evening
for the very first Share Your Style Party!

...and just when we've been teased by 70 degree weather,
we now have 6 inches of snow with more on the way,
and, with sub zero temps.
But I won't complain, we've had an easy winter. 
To all our friends in Boston and the NE.
I'm wishing you an early Spring!
