Sleeping Beauty

No, I was not lost in the old town, mentioned in my last post...

And I didn't fall asleep for tousand years like Sleeping Beauty...

I'm still here, I'm still alive.

Finally I can say we're back on the ground and in our home with floor & doors. Finally we feel at home... after all the workers packed their bags and left us alone. A good feeling indeed.

Now it's finally time for designing our living space. And time for my blog again, and for your blogs, of course, and... if I manage to put all my things from the boxes soon, it will be finally time for creative stuff.

Happy creating, everyone!

Ghost town

Although Halloween is over and ghosts suppose to sleep in their secret corners, I thought I'd share some mysterious pictures from France. The images match the weather and the mood in our town today. It's like in a ghost town...

So let's take a walk...

...up the stairs, pass this little house... I bet a witch is living there!...

...then pass the church when the bell ding-dongs 5 a.m...

...tiptoe around the big walls...

...and turn right at this yellow house.

If you're lucky, you will not see a soul... Unless... someone is watching you all way long.

Misty morning, secret stories... - imagine you were there...

When you're welcome

Today, let's jump from the busy school days and my 'story' from France to my favorite travel destination: Austria. I went there in August (as usually every summer) and as it always enlightens all the month with joy, excitement, refreshment, I chose an image from this holiday for the Photo-Heart connection project for August.

I took many pictures there, but when going through all my images, this image jumped out with a warm massage of welcoming, and that's exactly how I feel every time I go there.

'Tables' are set, waiting for you. You feel a warm welcome, like you came home from a long journey. Everybody is waiting just for you, waiting to serve you and make you feel special. You have just the right amount of privacy and just the right amount of attention. Because of that feeling I keep coming back every year. (Check out some of my previous posts from there - like: 'Plans', 'Neighbour - part 1, 'Don't mess with school', etc.). I didn't feel this way when I was in France, neither in some other countries, like UK or Italy... Austria really makes my heart jump :)!

These pictures were taken in an old castle, where I went to see a special performance about the old days...

It was wonderful and funny!

And the castle could become one of the scenes for some horror movies, don't you think??

Now, off I go to check other Photo-Heart connections of the month August... Will you join me?
