This post is sure to be underappreciated by many, mostly men :) But it's something I want to remember and is different than in the States.
Over here I see many cute little curtains. They are similar to cafe curtains back home, but not quite the same. They usually hang right in the middle of a window, no matter the size of the window or the curtain. Back home, it wouldn't even look right! But here, it is so quaint and something I love about Germany. When we walk around our neighborhood or other towns, I am drawn to the windows to see these charming little curtains. They seem old-fashioned, in a good way. They really serve no purpose other than to be cute! I will give a tour of the curtains in our rental home. You will be on the edge of your seats!
|Our living room|
|Our bathroom...little pink and orange flowery dots|
|Our kitchen, with cute tassels. The biggest window, the smallest curtain.|
|Our bedroom...with little copper colored jewels|
These are the ones in our house, and I see tons more in other windows. I don't want to go to German jail by taking pictures of those, so this is all I've got.
I won't be buying any to bring home. I don't think I would like them at home. But here, they are part of the charm. (It's like the houses in Hatteras, NC. Very awesome looking, but I won't be building a house on stilts at home and painting it turquoise.)
I look forward to seeing many more charming curtains!
