I saw this great decorating trick in the Summer/08 issue of Wish Magazine and had to show you guys! I remember we always had wooden blocks holding up our windows like this as a kid to keep the house cool in the summer or those screens that you can get that keep out the bugs. But since we’re pretty bug free here on the west coast (except for the odd evening moth), this is such a brilliant idea. I’m imagining a stawberry & rhubarb pie now cooling there on that window sill.
