“You can’t always control who walks into your life, but you can control which window you throw them out of!” – Anon
The Wednesday Challenge over on partner GC and my site Weekly Prompts is Window Sills. We asked our readers to showcase or tell us about what is on their window sills.
After my eldest daughter and family moved in with me and following renovations, I moved into the south-west side of our L shaped house where taking advantage of the views became my priority. I converted a bedroom into a sitting room, added a balcony and an additional window.
Ornaments are frequently swapped around in my sitting room, next month, depending on my mood, it could easily be a picture frame taking centre stage on the window sill.
Displaying religious artefacts in my home is really not my thing, that is not to say I am a non-believer, but each to his own as they say. Despite this, two angels perch my bedroom window sill.
Some years ago it was quite the thing for British tourists to return home from their Spanish holidays (vacation) with a couple of pieces of Lladro porcelain in their baggage. I became quite the collector, but styles change, and almost all my Lladro was passed on to the youngest daughter who was keen to have them – but I hung on to my angels.
I acquired the first angel because I liked the idea of a ‘Guardian Angel’ watching over a new-born. The second, the ‘Dreaming Angel’ made me smile, she looked bored and reminded me of a lovesick teenager; I placed her on the bedroom window sill next to the first angel so she could take her turn as the baby sitter!
I’m fussy about bathroom clutter, so on my ensuite window sill there’s rarely anything else on display.
