Green Window

A very simple green window with a frighteningly bad paint job has a basic lace curtain kissing it. Found on an old home in Colorado. Now, someone razor that paint job!

  1. There’s a story behind the sloppily painted window that plays out in one’s imagination. Perhaps, young children insisted on painting–Grandpa & Grandpa gave in, knowing it would end up a mess?


    • A possibility for sure. Perhaps an older gent whose eyesight and patience were no longer what they used to be, but pride of ownership and the love for his aging wife compelled him to paint, one last time.


  2. If you razored the paint job Mike I think the window would lose something – not just paint either. It tells something about the owner of the window. I actually rather like it. And I love your description of how the net curtain ‘kisses’ the window. Methinks you’re just an old romantic.


  3. What? You mean the paint isn’t supposed to cover the glass like that?
    Have a great weekend, Mike! I am about to check out of the office for the day. Yee Haw!!!


    • I love the thought of a long train ride in the rain.
      Oh wait, you commented on my window. I think it is an exceedingly simple photo, which appealed to me.
      Thanks for taking the time, you.


      • πŸ™‚ You know, I’ve been meaning to tell you that your replies to comments are always as fun and thoughtful as your posts. You’re such a great blogger–top flight all around. I meant to say earlier that one of the reasons that this window makes me smile is that the paint job here is about what I would have accomplished. πŸ™‚ The difference is my partner Melinda would have been out there with the razor blade lickety-split. Actually, I never would have been the one doing the painting in the first place, which makes me smile even more. πŸ˜€


      • I’m in Melinda’s camp. While I appreciate a quick job, it has to be cleaned up some to look half way decent.
        Nice of you to compliment my blogging skills. Truth be told I often wonder how long I can keep it up. Kind of like an addiction which is a lot of fun but also a bit of a ball and chain. Thanks, eh.
