52 weeks of creativity: Memories

I will share with you memories of the place I love the most: Tuscany. I will not show you pictures of all the famous sights (you will know them already) but of the small things and the landscape. When I am looking at the photos I can immediately feel the heat, smell the fragrance of the pine needles and taste the wine.  What a beautiful place and how many great memories!

Ok - I have to show you one sight. It's - in my opinion - the most beautiful building in the world: the Campanile (bell tower) of Florence.

52 weeks of creativity: Animal

This was a tough one. Animal.

Of course my first thought went to my dog but that is so obvious.

Then I made pictures of my owl collection. The pictures were nice. But still - these were no real animals.

I love ravens and crows. So out I went with my camera and did a lot of pictures of black birds high up in the trees. When you get near them they fly away - only some doggie treats could persuade them to stay and let me take their pictures. But those weren't too good.

So I gave up and decided to show some pictures from the zoo. I love the Vienna Zoo and even have a season ticket so I think it's approbriate to show you pictures of one my favorite animals in the Vienna Zoo.

2nd week of creativity

This week's prompt was 


This was an easy one for me as my best friend gave me a marvellous Amaryllis for Christmas. It has white flowers and grew 11 (!!) blooms (which was really hard work for the 2 stems). So all I had to do was to grab my camera and take some pictures of this gorgeous plant. See for yourself how beautiful it is.

52 weeks of creativity

Karin of created a new adventure - 52 weeks of creativity. Each Monday she will post a prompt and all participants can post something creative on their blogs. This could be photos, drawings, videos, diy, and everything else you can think of. I think this is a great idea (and not only because it's a reason to post regularly).

As the first week of January 2016 is next week, this week there is a warm-up with the prompt


The start of a new calender

The beginning of a beautiful flower

This will eventually become a new quilt

And I started a new journal

I hope this will be the start to a wonderful 2016 with 52 weeks of creativity!
