We live in a delicious third floor walk-up, just level with the cracked and peeling corner streetlight, and ever since we put up our darling ditty curtains (homemade with love, mind you) it forever looks as though the sun is setting or the moon is rising. All day long, all the night through.
The curtains are these ever-so-subtle absolutely fabulous sheer, off-white ones, and it creates this vague, out-of-focus glow of faux nature. Sigh. And don't you know, we find it oh-so-extremely comforting... Almost like we live in wide, deliciously open spaces. If you shut out the sound of the street below, you can almost hear birds chirping pets.
