My Redesign on a Redesign!

This arbor has great character, but I thought it needed some windows.  I already had these church windows, and though they didnt fit perfectly, I think they seemed to fit the bill just fine.
We just had some recent fresh fallen snow in Minnesota, so with some garland and wreaths I think that was all this arbor needed.  Simple and understated...I like that!
....along with this fabulous urn I found at a local occasional sale.  Just the right amount of patina.  Perfect!
All it needs is some greens and pine cones.  It sits upon another Judy Hill purchase...this lovely chippy old table.
Judy certainly did an incredible job creating this arbor.  She found some fabulous architectural pieces to incorporate into it.
And doesnt everything need some metal and rust?
Along with some chippy white paint.
This piece was actually a vintage dock.  It made for a perfect pathway through the arbor.
I love this view with my little shed in the background.  Maybe I need to get my butt in gear and add some embellishments to that....tomorrow!
And when all was said and done, this arbor got a redesign on its redesign.

I purchased this wonderful arbor from Judy Hill herself when she visited us in Minnesota for JUNKMARKET Under Glass.  It's created from vintage finds and for me it was love at first sight.  And with the holidays fast approaching, I decided to redesign the redesign to celebrate them!
