I've been thinking about writing this post for several weeks, while collecting photos. These small windows can truly bring out the character of a house.
The above home is one of my favorites. Great care was taken by the addition of the fret-work above the fan style window. Doesn't the window style remind you of half of a flower?
Creativity and skill were involved in cutting the glass shapes to make the little attic treasure.
A very skillful carpenter brought to life the framework of the very simple rectangular windows. It reminds me of a gingerbread house.

A simple oval is surrounded by fish-scale shingles.
The weather vane, perched directly above a beautiful fan shaped window, gives a whimsical look to the roof line.
Simple...yet, it shows interest in the dividing of the window panes.
No details were forgotten when designing this house....
The same house, looking at it from the front side.
I wonder how difficult it was to nail the fish-scale shingles to the roof of the turret. It is truly a window, in the attic, fit for a story book princess.....
