One of the places I hold most dear to me is our family cottage in eastern Ontario.  We have had this cottage since I was little and have spent every summer there; both relaxing and enjoying the wonderful outdoors.  I fully credit my time at our cottage with my love of the outdoors 🙂

When I was little I remember having to take afternoon naps when we were at the cottage.  It was during these “naps” that I fell in love with the windows!  I fondly remember laying there watching the patterns and pictures the sun would make on the glass.  It seemed truly magical to me.  I would watch the movement of the wind and how it swayed the trees and their leaves through the magical windows for hours.  What made everything seem even more beautiful was that windows that adorn each wall, in every room, are all goldeny yellow!

What I love and appreciate now, as an adult, is that they are actually recreated and recycled windows!  The windows are made of wavy glass that was taken from an old church in Ontario and salvaged to make new windows for our cottage.  Now, with my passion for recreating things, the windows seem even more special to me.  What a wonderful thing to do with the wavy golden glass.  Not only did all of the people who attended the church for years enjoy them, but then they where recreated and relocated to our cottage and we have enjoyed them for the past 35 years.

Take a look and let me know what you think of our special, recreated, goldeny windows…


I'd love to hear what you think...
