on my windowsill {24/52}

I just love some delicious window light. I don’t know what it is about items on a windowsill that appeals to me so much. And I swear, one of these days I will have a big, beautiful window overlooking my kitchen sink, filled with potted herbs and pretty glass bottles. You would think that would be pretty standard – a kitchen window over the sink – but I’ve lived in numerous places and haven’t had one yet. What’s up with that?

One of these days.

In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the light from my front windows …

Lavender, fresh from my garden. So sweet.

Mighty fine day to be a monkey.

My “beachy” livingroom re-do is coming along quite nicely. Expect photos in the near (maybe not so near) future. Maybe. I swear, my poor Husband gets a migraine when he sees the paint cans enter the house. He knows it’s never going to be just paint. Nope.

I bought a couch last week too. And a love seat. And possibly, a lamp or two.


and of course, the requisite (lately!) iPhone shot. Serious love for the hipstamatic app. Serious love :D

on my windowsill.

My camera is pretty happy this week, having the dust blown off of her, seeing as I’ve been such a slacker in that department lately. iPhone makes me lazy (not that I’m complaining about that one bit). Mustn’t let that happen because truthfully, my hands and mind were a wee bit rusty, picking her up.

Use it or lose it, as the saying goes ;)

    Jan, those are so pretty! Love your window light, and the colors of the background scenery through the window really add to it, especially on the starfish photo.

    I have to say – I have missed your camera photos, a LOT. Not that those you take with Instagram aren’t fantastic… but I love the focus and textures and stuff you do with the camera shots.
