Thriftin’ Time Tuesday

Last week I promised you another door knob project.  My daughter, Tracy, wanted to get started on her project.  She has been collecting knobs for a few months but she wasn’t sure what she really wanted to do with them.  At the last minute she came up with a great idea! 
What did she get when she added these……thrift 013

to this?  (Isn’t this window to die for?  She has had it for years..I couldn’t get it away from her!)

Great job, Tracy!  Are you sure you don’t want to leave it here for awhile?

 I'll be be at the party.....




  1. Wowza! I'm loving this. I think you just might have to get it permanently attached to your wall. What a gorgeous window and you know I love those door knobs.

  2. Bravo! I am standing clapping my hands. This is outstanding!

  3. Good Job. Where does Tracy plan to hang it? That is if she can pry it out of your hands!

  4. Cool idea. Like mother like daughter! Oh, and I have just the perfect place for it, too!!! HA!!

  5. Tracy certainly takes after her mother... with her artistic abilities.....
    I love what she's done with this beautiful window and knobs...

  6. I love combining vintage treasures to create something with a new purpose. That kind of character just can't be achieved from brand new items. It looks terrific.

    Thanks for linking to the party. I would love to have you join me for "Funny Faux Pas Follies," as well. Click the party button in my sidebar for details.
