These curtains may not look like much, but the memories behind them our priceless! During our Europe trip in 2008 (which we refer to as 'Eur08') we bought this material at an open air market in Belgium for the sole purpose of making curtains out of them (I had a vision, but no window measurements). When we returned I made drapes for our living room windows. The following year we bought a new house and of course we took them with us! Today, I hung them on the windows in our bedroom, and as luck has it, they fit perfectly!
Honestly, our bedroom is the ideal place for them as it's the home to most of our traveling treasures.
We have a vaulted ceiling and way up high is this shelf which is a great place (in my opinion, so I don't have to dust them as often) for our worldly collection.
Our newest additions are from Jamaica... A wood carving and a small drum.
The next thing to go up there may be from China! ;0) No, I'm not talking about something we buy at Walmart! I'm hinting about where we hope to be visiting in 2011!
