The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Windows around the World Part 3

September 8, 2016

Last post I posted a email from Kelly in Guam.  She has sent in pictures of the windows that she described in the last post.  See windows around the world part two for more information how to cover glass blocks with fabric or paper.  

Kelly says, the above is the aforementioned glass block window with spray-starched sheet squares.

Photo above is our living room bay window. It's difficult to achieve good lighting for photos because the sun is so bright in this window. These blinds came from Home Depot and I lined them with sheets.

The same is true of our dining room bay window, above. I made the decorator curtains that stay out from sheets also.

Here's another image.

Thank you Kelley, you have beautiful windows. I like how you lined your blinds with sheets.  The glass blocks look very nice with the spray starch sheet squares and your living room is beautiful!   Thank you for sending in photos for this post.

Thank you all for sending in photos of your windows, we have enjoyed seeing your windows and I know it has inspired me to do something different with our windows now that I want to remove our plastic blinds.
