It's an exciting time - I've finally got the okay from the boss to build a greenhouse - out of all the old windows we've accumulated since our move.

May 15 2024

In case you haven't seen this type of greenhouse, generally they have a frame made of wood, then a customized framework to hold all the different sized windows. You can use almost anything, jigsawed together to fit. I like to keep things simple, so that the end result has some kind of cohesion to it. I've built cold frames from recycled windows, but this old window greenhouse kicks it up a notch. You can use all kinds of other trim to make it look antique and old, or even sleek and modern if that's your jam.

You know me, vintage wins, so my greenhouse will be charming and have a lot of whimsical touches to give it that magical appeal.

Other things on the horizon are ways to display little bits of driftwood, shells, sea glass and more - all the type of stuff you can pick up off the beach while meandering at the tide line. Driftwood crafts are some favorite ways to make natural materials into decor, for your dwelling, for sale, or for your cottage.

I like to collect this kind of thing long in advance of using it, so it can stay out in the rain to wash off the salt.
