Finally took pictures of my windows. I wasnt sure what I was going to do with these since they are arched, but I came up with this. I was going to use river rock to tile around them, but figured it would be too hard since they’re too round so I went to Lowes and they gave me they’re broken tile for free. I thnk they turned out pretty neat. I know you can’t see the arch in these pictures, but I don’t really know how to bend wood so I went with tile. Maybe I should have asked you guys first and then decided what to do. Did I mention that I hate these wiindows, well, i do. My husband bought them. A friend of ours took him to the window bone yard and only paid $30.00 for each window. I was gonna go with them and thought, nah, he can do this without me. He bought 10 windows for our room addition, but these 4 don’t open. I didnt say a word. He still doesnt know I hate them. So this is what I did with them.

Well first let me say, what a GORGEOUS view you have out of these windows!!! And how nicely the windows turned out, with your “tiling job” and curtains. Your cottage is lovely …

Yep, I like my view, but if I was going to have windows that don’t open, I would have rather them have been big picture windows. But whatever, to late now, just have to live with it. We do have 2 other windows and a door that can let a breeze in, in that room.

What was he thinking??? You can always threaten to take those windows out and put them in that new solarium that you are planning ;)

I agree with you. Those windows called for guilllotine style. No matter what, tile was a great solution.

Yes, I always have fun there. Not quite the view I think you have though. Hey, I read somewhere that you had a newphie. I’ve been wanting one for a long time now. My dog is getting up there in age, but my son just moved back home with his dog. I wasnt to happy about that. I want to pick out the next dog. So, are they really as great as I’ve read about. And are they hard to take care of? I’m alittle worried about the drool and the dog hair, even though my dog sheds alot too. I’m just getting sick of the dog hair. I’ve read that they have a great personallty and of course love the water, those 2 reason are why I want one. Well, also, they’re suppose to be really good with kids. Can you tell me alittle about your dog? Would you get another one?

Well now, which view are you all refering to? The view out the windows or the one of Janice? L.O.L. They both look great, L.O.L. Don’t tell your hubby or my wife I said that, I want to live a bit longer L.O.L. But felt they both desearved compliments, I especially liked the tile work around the windows very nice thanks for sharing.
