Bethgem over at www.bethgem.blogspot.com has a lovely post about her window sill. This inspired me to clean the window sill in my kitchen. It holds 4 plants, a hedgehog figurine and the garage door opener. The plants needed some cleaning up and shed dead leaves all over the dusty window sill. So, I cleaned it up, cheered it up and now I have a lovely view while I give my hands a bubble bath (wash dishes).
My other window sills I keep clear. They're too shallow to put anything on without the major risk of knocking it down.
