Curtain poles and windows frames go hand in hand just like curtains and windows do, and when the curtains are drawn along the poles at night it gives us warmth and security, especially as the nights begin to close in and autumn approaches.
But what about when the curtains
are tied back and we let the sunlight stream in, do we just leave the sill
below the window blank? No, because as
human beings we generally like to adorn our free space with things that look
nice and the window sill is no exception.
From pictures of loved ones to
Lilliput Lane, the British window sill has always been an area reserved for
ornaments of some kind and, with so many different types of window architecture
in our rich and vibrant heritage, the things we place in those areas can be
equally rich and varied.
