Window dressing with a twist!

I have a fascination for wide window sills. This has to do with some of my fondest childhood memories of my summer vacations spent reading comics and playing on a wide window sill for hours at my cousin’s house. They had an unusual window sill which was a kind of mini-room with grills on either side of the wide sill with a beautiful pink bougainvillea creeper covering up the outer side of the grill, creating a virtual green wall. So much for my nostalgic memories....

A window could be a favorite spot for reading, day-dreaming, coffee-time, bird watching, moon gazing, star-counting…..Oh whatever! It does mean something to most of us and beyond this for creative souls.

It’s just not the sheers, drapes and blinds that are used to dressing up a window, a bit of imagination and everyday objects you find around you will do the trick.I am sure each of these window sills will have a story to share with fond memories attached to it.

Re-arranging knick-knacks is another interesting idea

Grouping similar colored objects looks great on the sill.
