J is for...
Jalousie. I usually can't prounounce the name correctly -- jaloosy or Ja Lucy -- but I love them, anyway. There must have been jalousie windows in a home of my childhood. We moved a lot when I was a kid -- at least once a year until I was in third grade, and sometimes more -- my public school education was kicked off by three different kindergarten teachers.
There are certain things -- elements of design, decor, embellishment, architecture -- that stand out from my childhood. Coppertone, Avocado Green, and Harvest Gold; aluminum canisters and spice shakers; Tupperware; Danish modern furniture; jalousie windows.
It's crazy to have these windows in Wisconsin, but they are represented in many a sun porch, Florida room, or three-season room, and they always catch my eye.
I've posted photos from Flickr before, but never an entire post... Ta-DA!
