As my name might indicate, I like poppies.  So awhile back I had this idea to take an old window and use it as a frame for some pics of poppies I took while walking my dog this summer.  I was going to paint the wood trim, but it had yellow and pink paint layers under the white that ended up looking great with some strategic sanding.  I never thought I'd be creating a faux antique look, but I am very happy with it.  The green squares might get orange poppies, since they're my favorite, if I can get some good pics next summer.  I'm not sure yet if that will create a flower overload or not.

And up close with better color:

I love it! But I love the country decorating! I have a barn full of old windows, I have been meaning to get around to decorating. I love the way yours turned out!

oh, it's so nice!  i actually think it works both ways, but if it were me i would fill in the other spaces, too, once you get the photos ... i prefer that to a minimalist presentation.

Wow, looks great! I kind of like how it looks with the three blank squares.

How did you attach the photos to the windows? Are they on the inside or outside of the glass? I've had a similar project in the back of my head for a while, so I'd love some hints...

Oh! If I could make sense of it all. I wish that I could sing, I'd stay in a melody. I would float along in my everlasting song. What would I do to believe...
