Window Shelter

We all love old windows.
There are so many fabulous craft projects and uses!
I made a victorian style window "house" for my garden.
These windows are out of Richard Dean Anderson's
cabin in northern Minnesota.
Yes, I'm talking about Macgyver.
Photo: Did you know that MacGyver's Swiss Army Knife changed a few times? A Victorinox was used in the show, but a Wenger in the opening credits.  
Get a MAC attack at Amazon!
Only a certain age group will remember him &
his exciting show with great ingenuity!
  His historic log home was being updated by
the new owner and I found the windows for
sale on craigslist. I purchased a good stack too!


The ridge cap is rusty old decorative tin.
It came out of a junk pile,
and I was thrilled to find a use for it!

Back in victorian days, these window houses
would protect their most precious plants.
In my mind, they were meant to keep
 the dogs from digging them
 up or laying on them! ha!

Linking up to:



  1. What an adorable home to protect your lovely plants, as well as making quite the design statement! Thanks so much for sharing it and finding such a cool way to re-purpose the windows.
    Happy 4th of July!

  2. Oh I remember Macgyver! How lucky to get his old windows!
