Giving the Apartment a Little Class

So I was walking down Yonge Street on the way to class (magasine editing at Ryerson), casually glancing in the shops as I went. That's when I saw the beaded curtains in this funky Chinese shop. They were made of real wooden beads, none of this plastic shenanigans. And, perhaps more importantly, they were 30% off.

It has always been my dream to have a real wooden beaded curtain at a reasonable price! (No, really, I've always wanted a beaded curtain). My darling husband worries the beads might become annoying after a while (and for him, I'm sure they will, or already have, after three seconds of the thing being up), but he's such a sweetheart he hung it for me anyway. Yes, feminists, I could have put it up myself but Adam's tall and knows where the tools are and is less lazy.

Now I will enrich your life with a pic of my fabulous new beaded curtain. Can you look at this thing without being happy? Of course not.

Love the curtain! I really want one of those too but I have no idea where we'd hang it... saw a really cool beach design one in Oslo once...
Btw it's cool seeing pics of tour apartment 'cos it's a little blurry from around 3000 miles away... lol

Maybe sometime later I'll post some pics of the rest of my apartment. Give you a virtual tour like the one of your house.

Photos of other people's everyday life are great! I sometimes find myself walking down the street or out at the shops, and seeing things that I wish I could share with you guys. So keep an eye out on my blog! Lol.

That's sweet! You're right, no one could possibly remain in a glum mood after looking at that curtain!
