This window came from the house where my wife grew up, which is the house in the picture. She salvaged this window and three more when new windows were installed about a year ago. The house is up for sale now, and I thought this would be a good way to remember it as it was in the days when my wife was a little girl. The framing around the window is mahogany finished with Danish oil.

Your project is, of course, excellent.

What a great idea. Can’t say that I’ve ever heard of a Memory Window before, never the less a great idea!
