As I traveled across Germany, I became intrigued with the windows I saw -- not just the unbelievably beautiful ones in the churches and and the castles, but in those that were where the people lived.
The curtains were a big part of the charm.

I started taking pictures, but missed a lot of opportunities since we were frequently on the bus traveling through the small, quaint villages.

Here are a few that I did manage to capture.

And finally, inside looking out from my hotel room in Heidelberg.

If I was 40 years younger and a better photographer, I would hike all over Germany taking photos of not only the exquisite architectural windows; but the simple, charming ones as well!

There's something about windows with flower boxes, and lace curtains. I ♥ lace curtains and have them in the kitchen, living and dining rooms, and one bedroom. Someday I'll put lace in the other bedrooms as well. Lace curtains were also popular in Wales when we visited. ♥♫

Hi darling, what wonderful pictures you shot. I loved all the shapes and sizes. The breezy light weight curtains were gorgeous. What a wonderful trip you must have had. I'm heading back to your previous post to catch more.
