Picture Window

I had found some old barn windows down in the barn [imagine that] and immediately knew I wanted to hang them from tree branches for the wedding.  In the end, I could only hang one [well, my Uncle Don and Mike did all the hanging] because the tree branches were higher than I thought and impossible to reach even with our ladder.

We removed the few panes left in the window [they looked pretty cool, but were loose and I didn’t want to risk someone slicing themselves on broken glass at the wedding], inserted a couple of eye hooks in the top of the frame, strung it with some clothesline and wrapped that around the branch.  I also hung a few vintage pieces I found in thrift shops on the tree along with an iron candle holder left by the original house owners in the basement.

I was quite pleased with the outcome and everyone [namely myself] had a lot of fun taking snapshots in the window panes.  Simple and pretty.
