What's to Be Jealous of Jalousies

Marguerite's room is still a mess of boxes and things that need to be stored or restored. She has her toy and book shelves more or less fixed (unless she has just been in, in which case everything would be on the floor), but that's basically it other than the window. When we first looked at this place, I was turned off by the kind of windows they have. They remind you of classrooms from the '80s. Anyway, I still don't like them, but I'm doing what I can to beautify the window area. This is Marguerite's window. I've hung pink and purple tulle, the beaded portiere that my sister made for me when I was still living in Subic (it hung in the entry to the hall leading to the bedrooms), and an old sparkly lavender shawl. I'll embellish it some more, but at least, the window looks less hideous now.
