Another confession: I not only like to peek into the insides of people's homes... I also love exploring secret backyard gardens.
We found this clever greenhouse made from recycled windows during a garden tour in our neighborhood last year. The men who built it had such a genius garden scheme. They had refined materials that were ready for the trash, and transformed them into treasure.
No one minded the peeling paint, or the make-shift building's asymmetry.
There was something altogether magical about the way it felt to be inside this glass house. It was filled with someone's colorful treasures, and overlooked a cheerful garden filled with handmade mosaics and singing canaries.
There were places to lounge inside with a good book and a cup of tea. Or it could be a great place to set an easel to paint...
I've been daydreaming about building a structure like this, since the day I took these.
