My favourite things

Yesterday, I arranged my new yarn on the windowsill to photograph it in the early morning light. The windowsills in my new apartment are one of my favourite things. I can already see they are going to be a much-favoured location for photographs.

The walls of the old building I live in are very thick and on my side of the building I have wide, flat windowsills. My previous apartment had even thicker walls, but the windows were set at the inside rather than the outside of the openings and so I had no usable sills.

Last weekend I bought some herbs in small pots and lined them up on one of the sills. The sills and the opportunities they bring are going to give me a great deal of pleasure.

Wide sills just make so much sense, don't they! The herbs look lovely there too :)
