through the keyhole #7 - windowsill

real people, real homes
we don't care how 'unpolished' it is, we're just nosy!

i couldn't decide which windowsill to share. i have something on each one. ornaments from our travels, books... but since it's been all about the studio recently, i thought i might as well share possibly my fave windowsill.

i took this shot this morning, about 6:30am, so just a soft light coming in. the sill comes under my knee it's so low, because of having to raise the floors of this old building. so it's more of a window seat. it means the light is sacrificed, but i do get this treat. it's just wide enough for my butt. i usually open one side. a breeze rides insistantly over my propped-up legs. i see the greenery of our land and beyond, and on a non-hazy day, i look up from my sketchbook and am again pleasantly surprised to find a portion of sea... stretching out into a tantalising horizon. knowing that italy is on the other side pleases me.

so, what sits on one of your windowsills?

  1. I love your deep set windowsills. I love your windows, too!

    A window that looks out toward Italy...what a dreamy picture you paint. It just sounds so wonderful to sit at such a window.

  2. I love those window sills. I knew they'd be perfect for curling up on! Wonderful!

  3. Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I don't have windowsills unfortunately... Which part of the Balkans you moved to, if I may ask? I was born in Eastern Europe and I too am going through the process of elimination trying to find a place where I could live a simpler life, if at all possible. Mona

  4. Oh, that's lovely. I could sit there and write and read and reflect all day long. What a beautiful spot.

  5. How about larder/pantry/similar?

  6. Oh, just missed the deadline, drat this working lark, I keep missing out on life in general!
    How about a garden gate?

  7. That looks like a really awesome place to blog. :) I love your house

  8. Beautiful windowsill, so peaceful and calm. You must be in another world altogether when you sit there and contemplate.
