There are no shades or curtains there so the sun's rays are free to bounce and illuminate wherever they want.
It just so happens there are many glass objects on the cabinet top below the window.
Now I love crystal and cut glass of all kinds. The intricate patterns call to me.
On sunny days, there's a short time in the late afternoon when the sun pours down through the window and onto the glass items.
So many times when passing by the pantry, I have looked in and stopped in my tracks.
The crystal shimmers and glows.
Then, in a few split seconds, the sun moves along and the magic show ends
Right now, on the shelf in the window, green and purple glass are displayed, soon to be replaced by amber for the fall.
DO YOU DECORATE WITH TRANSPARENT GLASS, CRYSTAL OR COLORED GLASS ?
