What is it about old windows?

A friend asked me the other day, "Are people buying old windows?"

I haven't been able to keep them in the store!

Today, I just got some really cute vintage green windows in and wanted to give some ideas on how to use them in decorating. Abigail's is all about upcycling furniture and architectural salvage into beautiful and usable home decor. After all, "Green is the new Black!"

There are so many ways to use old windows. Here are some of our favorites:

A divider or garden wall

Framing in a porch. I love this idea!

A cozy cottage table
This greenhouse/conservatory is to die for!

Window frames used as garden trellises- would be so cute with sweet peas or climbing roses.

This greenhouse project is way beyond my technical/carpentry skills, but so cute!
This old window makes a great display for a vintage purse collection.

Another greenhouse type project.

Classic window box with flowers

Cute mixed media collage.

I'm sure you all have good ideas too. If you have a picture, send one to us!

Country Living Inspiration

These pictures (featured in Country Living this month) are so inspiring to me right now.

I am working on a few pillows from some sweet vintage fabric I found, look for them in the shop soon!

We have several old distressed mirrors like this in the shop now.

I have never seen nubby chenille look so inviting. I have two of these in the store now and may take them home to give my own bed that look.

Abigail's is officially BACK!!

There are so many fun items in the store right now! I also have so many in the back to be put out when I get a spare minute. I have priced a BUNCH today.

Our wonderful, loyal customers have found us! People are glad we are back. A few new customers have been in, but mostly our old favorite ones. It has been so nice to see familiar faces.

I am posting some pictures I took inside and outside the shop today. We have been selling fast so if you see something you can't live without, stop in soon!
