weekly photo challenge: window

WINDOW, n. [ G. The vulgar pronunciation is windor, as if from the Welsh gwyntdor, wind-door.]  1. An opening in the wall of a building for the admission of light, and of air when necessary… 6. Lines crossing each other.  Till he has windows on his bread and butter.

Remember, the above definition is from my favourite 1828 dictionary.

Taking that into account, I thought about these fabrics, which do have “lines crossing each other.”

  1. so, with that definition – “The vulgar pronunciation is windor, as if from the Welsh gwyntdor, wind-door” – (which I never knew about until this very minute!), I’d say we were pretty close in our pronunciation when I was a kid. We called it a winder instead of a window. 😆
    love your take on this challenge. Lord willing, I’ll get to post something when Little Lubby gets out of the ER.
