Who wouldn't want to spend a bit of time curled up with a good book or magazine sitting under or near a wonderful window?  The sunlight, a comfortable seat, an interesting view perhaps...that's the recipe for a perfect moment or two.

So many ways to window sit...which of these do you prefer? That's my question in today's THIS OR THAT!

My favorite window seat would be the first one on the ledge.  I would love to spend a little time just sitting on a window ledge watching passersby.  Pretty picture indeed.

This is a THIS OR I must know which of these window sitting areas you prefer?  Do you have a place to just sit by a window in your own home?  If so, where?  I want to hear.

Happy Friday!


P.S.  Whirlwind I get ready for a quick trip to the south...North Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia are on my agenda next week.  Will be there for just two days meeting with all kinds of folks and talking about Nbaynadamas.

P.P.S. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate all of you readers and how much I enjoy hearing from you here on the blog.  I love your comments so please don't be afraid to weigh in...I love seeing what you have to say about design or about anything else.  I read all of your comments and am entertained and informed by them.  So thank you for being part of the conversation!!  xoxo
