I never get tired of visiting Freiluft Museen or " Open Air " Museums. This one is located in the Spree Wald https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spreewald
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.

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.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotland_%28sheep%29
I think I may paint them.
More from my trip in the next blogs

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....
