Mini conservatory made from old windows

I love old windows!  Always ‘on the hunt’ for them.  Michael drags home as many as he can find too.  USUALLY we try to find multi-paned windows to just sell ‘as is’.  But in one batch that Michael got there were a whole bunch of these single paned windows.  We did a major window purging a while back and I cleaned them all up and took a big batch to both the store and our booth at the antique mall.  But not the single paned ones.  They’re just not that ‘interesting’. 

No one wants to buy an old single paned window!  Michael kept bugging me, asking me what I wanted to do with those single paned windows.  So I gave him a project!

And here it is all displayed in the store:

He used FIVE windows.  Two for the top, and three sides; leaving the back open for easier access.

It looks really neat just left ’empty’.  But I decided I’d best fill it up lest any wee visitors to the store thought it was a fort to play in!

I wanted to embellish it a little bit to dress it up.  I played around with my box of carved wood mouldings and corners and stuff for about an hour and just didn’t like the way any of them looked on it.  I finally settled upon these resin ornaments that I just pulled with wire hanger out of.

I MUST figure out a way to put a little lit up Christmas tree in there when I decorate the store for Christmas.  (IF it lasts that long that is!)  Right now the ONLY place there is room for it is right in the middle of the floor, so no electrical outlet access.

What would YOU put inside this if you had one of your very own?  Would you change up the contents seasonally, or have a year round display in it?
