Window with Victorian holiday decoration

Simple Holiday Decoration

I stopped at a traffic light and saw this lovely set of windows, beautiful in any season with its original wooden shutters, carved half-posts between the windows and colorful opaque stained glass lights at the top, but so tastefully decorated and I wondered if in the building’s youth before the turn of the century the Victorian-era resident had chosen a similar theme, candles on the windowsill inside, swags and bright red bows on the sill outside. The building is tall and narrow and so plain; next to this window is a simple paneled door and upstairs two individual double-hung windows without colored glass lights, a little bit of gingerbread around the eaves and that’s it. But I’ve often wondered at the room behind that marvelous window.
