That wall over yonder is my favorite part. Denise saw these old, rusty window panes at this antique shop and told me I needed them. She has vision. I do not. (I love her.)

But I LOVE how they turned out.
Denise had the idea to put a bunch of dining stuff in each frame, but I could never find enough stuff, so I got foam core board cut to fit in each frame, covered each one with white coarse linen, and stuck in pictures of places we've been (you know how I salivate over traveling the world). We like to talk about those places over Sunday dinner.
And it means something to all of us.
