Our building owner is changing out all of the apartment's rusty, paper thin windows for some shiny, modern, fancy ones. I hear that the new windows will keep out the noise and dust, and be much easier to clean, but I can't help but feel a little bit like they are ripping out the beautiful old soul of the building;  sigh.
 
plus. someone told me that the new windows don't have windowsills . . . where will I put stuff?

  1. No windsills? So sad. I wonder if you could find salvage and make some great "old soul" shelving?

  3. as I clean the dust and cobwebs and other stuff off my window sills and around the rusty metal frames that hold the little window panes, I have a love- hate relationship with the windows in this old place, mainly I love them. So I sympathize. . .
