Charming Make-Do Awning for a Sunny Window

IMG_2029
Robert Anderson came up with an ingenious idea to make a living awning to shade this west-facing window at Sedge Meadow Antiques in Alden, Illinois. He built the frame and attached vintage wire fencing for his Morning Glories to grasp, climb and cover the top of his storefront window. I think the scalloped fencing is charming with or without anything growing upon it. Don’t you love the idea of an awning made of flowers? -Ginene

Fox and Finch Antiques is my 16-year-old shop housed in a 1890 bank building in Richmond, Illinois. I live above the shop in a space with 11 foot ceilings, big windows and a 17 stair daily commute. Richmond is a pretty little town 16 miles south of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. There are charming historic houses, a wooden bridge and the wonderful Prairie Trail runs just past my back door.
