A Botanical Window Decal Creates a Wonderful Illusion

As you will know if you are a regular Scene from a Window visitor, I normally share with you a variety of enchanting painted and photographic scenes viewed as if from a window.

Today I came across something new that I thought was a wonderful idea, and hope you might just agree. Glue-free window decals adhere to the glass on your windows where they can be seen from both inside and outside. Because no glue is involved, they are easy to position, move around or remove completely when you feel like a change.

If you are looking to create a fake view that tricks the eye (an effect known as trompe l'oeil which means exactly that, trick the eye, in French), then these botanical window decals are a wonderfully easy way to do just that.

When you apply a botanical window decal like the above, or indeed any of these glue-free decals, you create a convincing effect that will have people believing the leaves are real. This one also features a sweet bird, a beautiful sight that for many of us would be only too rare in real life this close to a window.

People who bought this decal over at AllPosters.com loved it, giving it 5-star reviews. Another advantage is that these glue-less window decals are very affordable. Head on over there to see the full range which includes some photo-realistic designs of leaves and potted herbs as well as more whimsical ones such as fairies or a silhouetted child catching leaves.

Looking Out on the Golf Course

If you enjoy a round of golf, or know somebody who does, here's a window view that was surely created with you in mind!

As all golfers know, Scottish golf courses are some of the best in the world. Playing the Old Course at St Andrews or visiting the new Trump golf resort in Aberdeenshire are dreams shared by many a golf enthusiast. Not everybody lives with the famous 'links' and courses on their doorstep, though.

Today's window view poster brings the golf courses of Scotland a little closer to you. It features a golf course a stone's throw from St Andrews: The Home of Golf . Such an easy way to create the effect of having a course right outside your window!

The day captured in this photographic poster was perfect weather for a round of golf. A trio of golfers are enjoying the view from the well-maintained grass slope lined with trees.

Every day is a day for golf with this faux window! Available in the SceneFromAWindow store via Zazzle.com where every purchase has a full-satisfaction guarantee. Add a custom frame (I recommend Honey Oak) to give this a more robust window appearance or just enjoy the trompe l'oeil effect of the photography without any additional enhancement.
