The old vinyl mini-blinds were more brittle than egg shells. A wiping with the dusting tool, Thursday morning, caused a couple of vanes to snap into several pieces. That was the wake-up call to finally replace the blinds on all three windows in the music room/den. By afternoon, I had found some replacement blinds and was ready to upgrade the window dressings.
In the process of preparing and cleaning the bare window, I removed the colored glass items that had been placed there as “light catchers”. They were dusty and covered with fine cobwebs. After the blinds were installed, I gently washed the glass knick knacks in warm, soapy water.
The act of mindfully cleaning the objects renewed my appreciation of these small tchotskes. It would be fun to photograph the old thrift store acquisitions with the new Venetian blinds as the background.
