Memories From Prague: Medieval Tower And Medieval Castle

I guess I'm just a little obsessed with the architecture from Europe. I was very taken with the look of Prague. I love the orange roofs. 
They are for sale in my Etsy shop for now. I don't know why I'm selling them....I'm going to have a hard time parting with them, so they may not be in the shop long.

Christmas Holiday Full Size Aprons For Women and Girls

My Christmas aprons are made and listed in my Etsy shop. What a wonderful time of the year!!!!

I'm so glad I finished these because I had to get them listed before I had my knee surgery. I had arthroscopic surgery because of some cartilage damage done years ago. It just got worse and worse. Now I'm in the healing phase. Actually it's not too bad. I can walk without crutches today. I'm doing the exercises and hopefully will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.

Please check these out in my Etsy shop. They would make great gifts for her.

I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Thanksgiving Turkey Day Aprons

Thanksgiving Apron

Turkey Apron

I could not stop with only making Halloween aprons, so I continue on to Thanksgiving and made these Turkey day aprons. They are now listed in my Etsy shop.

I love displaying holiday aprons in my kitchen during each of the seasons/holidays. They look great hanging from a hook if you don't have a dress form. Just a little FYI.

I'm in the midst of decorating for my Halloween party....changing a few things here and there from last year. I have tons to do and I'm starting to get that anxiousness that comes with the holidays. I try to start early so this does not happen but here it is anyway. I guess because my calendar is filling up and I will probably have to have my knee scoped. Oh yea! I'm so looking forward to doing that....NOT!
"It's always something."  "It is what it is." "C'est la vie"....I don't know .....what other saying can I throw out?

Medieval Skyline Series Art Paintings by Charlotte Littlejohn

Since my vacation to Europe I've been having so much fun painting this series called "Medieval Skylines".  I'm so inspired by the architecture from Europe, that I had to paint my memories from that beautiful landscape.  I love the old world. I can't believe some of these structures are still around. The gothic cathedrals are unbelievable.
I went to Paris last year and got to see Notre Dame and it was amazing. I love the baroque style architecture in Paris.
I got to see some beautiful churches in Rome a few years before I went to Paris. Rome is so very ancient and has a look of its own. When I went to Prague this year I really did not know what to expect. Prague is awesome looking as well and has a unique fairy tale feel. I love, love, love it!
Prague is very old like Rome but has the baroque architecture that I love form Paris. So very cool! Prague is wonderfully colorful evan though it's so old. The orange rooftops make it unique and the gothic cathedrals make the skyline.
So here are some of the paintings I did as a result of my trips to Europe. I have them listed in my Etsy shop.

Fairy Tale Castles & Houses

Salzburg Austria My European Vacation

The last city visited on my tour was Salzburg Austria. I'd love to come back and stay awhile. It's so quaint, beautiful and historic. Nested in the hills with a castle on top, lovely old buildings, narrow streets and cafes, the oldest restaurant in Europe, home of Mozart and Maria Von Trapp from the Sound of Music. And yes I did take the Sound of Music tour. It was fabulous.
Here are some photos...enjoy because this is the last post on my vacation.

Danube River Cruise My European Vacation

Only a couple of legs left on my trip. From Vienna not far down the road we caught a river boat in Krems to get a lovely morning cruise down the Danube. We got off the boat in Spitz and went on to visit the Melk Abby and have lunch. Next stop Landzeit which was just gorgeous scenery! But no real rest here just a quick potty break. Then it was on to Salzburg, which was the last city visited on this wonderful trip. 
Next time I'll show pictures of Salzburg.
