It makes me crazy.
I stopped looking at it years ago.
Do you do that?
Walk past things in your house so many times, that you stop seeing them?
I'm going to stop doing that.
I noticed the window the other day.
The one that makes me crazy.
I'm disgusted too.
Those are the same curtains and blinds that were there 9 years ago when we bought the house.
See the odd location of this window?
That is the door that leads to the upstairs.
...and the door is usually open.
I have the Hubby and Monkey under STRICT orders to leave the door shut.
And the dogs.
Yes, they can open the door.
They think they own the
upstairs whole house.
And the other side of the window is a wall that makes this an odd little corner.
It isn't a room, it's not associated with a room, its just there.
Anyway, when I stopped to look at the window---
I ripped the curtains down.
They were filthy.
Which made me think...
when was the last time I washed these?
And then I thought...
if I washed these, did I really hang them back up?
(whom I currently have a blog crush on)
Her ten minute hanger curtain post...
Did you see it?
Go Here to see it.
She takes a Hotel hanger and drapes a white sheet over it and hangs it in her window...
Its simple, elegant.
I have a white sheet.
I have a Hotel hanger.
Mine did not turn out simple and elegant.
It didn't work because---
1. The stupid window is too wide
2. The hanger and the trim around the stupid window are the same color
I collect scarves.
Told you I was an accessory junkie.
I didn't want to give up on this hanger/stupid window idea
So I went to my scarves, where they are
neatly folded smashed into a couple of drawers.
And went back to the window.
I came up with this.
And this version with a different scarf...
Then I started playing around with different scarves.
...This is a vintage Vera scarf.
I love it.It's Mod.
I would never decorate my house in this style.
I appreciate it.
But a whole room would be just too much for me.
I like it here.
A touch of Mod in a Modless house?
I put on my fancy pants and went to my jewelry box.
...and somewhere in that transition,
I lost the abillity to take a picture that wasn't blurry.
Update from this afternoon!
I took a few more pictures:
I am thinking the possibilities are endless with this
stupid cute little window.
Thanks Donna for the inspiration.
