{curtain call(ing)}

This past weekend we finally put up some curtains in our bedroom/office.
A couple weeks ago my brother and I went to IKEA and I fell in love with their flowery fabric. I didn't get around to sewing it to the right length until this past weekend though..
Please don't hate ;) - we had a sheet up on the window since we moved in almost 6 months ago.. We just needed something to block the sun out and the dark sheet came in handy.

My sweet husband acting surprised by me taking a picture. I'm so glad he's always supportive of my ideas and always has a helping hand.

Well, I'm not from here, but I have been living in Kaiserslautern since May 2009. It's such a beautiful place all year round.
