Ball Mason Jars and a Shabby Window

Shabby window with barnyard wood sill and two of my grandmother sharps antique figurines
Last month when going to a flea market I picked up an old window Shabby chippy window with windowsill planter attached 15.00.  At a booth just a few steps down I picked up a box of a bunch of vintage ball canning jars 8.00.........

Yesterday I took a little gray paint and dry brushed the sill........cleaned window and jars, added lavender to three of the jars and my double knockout roses using pink and red and this is what I came up with



Lavender and Roses in the vintage ball canning jars

Just another view of Window on top of my mantle with burlap and ticking runner and vintage figurine

Done for 23.00! (I already had the lavender and roses are from my garden.)

  4. Hi there, Sherry!

    How are you? I hope all is well. Looks like you are keeping busy.

    Love what you've done with the old window and mason jars. It's so fresh and pretty! I might have to steal this look for our mantel :) You can't beat the charm of an old window.

    Thanks for the sweet comment on our nook, too. I really appreciate it. I'm fearful of the kitchen though, Yikes :)

    Have a great Monday!

  46. Hi there Shanty Girl:) I adore your blog and barely made it past the header photos...amazing!!!! What an inspired decorator you are:) I will tell you right now I will be copying you in my own home:) I found a window like yours, without the box, and just don't know what to do with it. I was thinking photos but don't know where to start. If you've seen things like this done, please let me know.
