We have had some fierce storms in Lafayette County, but the fast traveling fronts have also meant wonderful breezes to invite into the house. The air is a little humid, but not bad, and the clean ozone scent is a welcomed replacement for the stale stuff trapped in the house up until now. The downstairs bathroom has my favorite window. The stained glass piece is one I did during my Hallmark days in a workshop (a refreshing break from greeting card art). Originally designed for the bathroom in my very first house, the piece didn't work in two subsequent houses. Now our current bathroom has a diamond pattern in its linoleum flooring, so the window looks custom made once again. The "curtain" is a flat sheet with Battenburg lace trim that I had kept long after the full sized bed was replaced with a queen, which has now since been replaced by a king. I threw the sheet carelessly over the curtain rod for spontaneous privacy when we first moved into our current house 2 years ago. The intended rod pocket has never been sewn in. The sheet hangs fine without it. When the window is open, the sheet flutters a welcome to the breeze.
