Vacation Shots II

I never get tired of visiting Freiluft Museen or " Open Air " Museums. This one is located in the Spree Wald  
located about 100km southeast of Berlin.
I love walking through old buildings, especially the most rustic ones and imagining how people once lived . The wooden clogs were available for people to try on and walk around, there were also stations to wash laundry the old fashioned way and stilts to try out.  Wherever I go I look for historic Museums, Pioneer villages and the like.

Vaction shots

We spent the first part of our trip in Germany with my family on an eco ranch. We did horseback riding, learned about cow whispering and my favorite thing was getting to know the herd of Gotland sheep.
I helped shear three sheep and got to keep a bunch of the wool which I loosely braided and sewed into a stool cushion.
I love, love, love wool.
And I really fell in love with these lovely breed of sheep.
I think I may paint them.

More from my trip in the next blogs

Back and running !

Maybe I should have written 'Back and Rolling" since I chose this photo, which was taken on our last day in Italy. Our little town Noli on the Ligurian coast had a sweet flea market where I spotted this adorable pair of skates. More soon....
