It started as a simple #fromwhereistand photo. Just my feet next to a collection of beautiful colored leaves. On my next walk I took the next two, and another. Soon enough I had a whole pile of photos from this motive. So I made it my goal to shoot it as a kind of challenge everywhere I’ve been this autumn. Love this little Sammelsurium (mingle-mangle) of pictures.
Such a wonderful, sunny and warm October Sunday. Perfect for a walk under colored trees, to take the last really warm sunbeams in and fill the reservoire for the long winter days. We took a walk through the Tiergarten in Berlin, where the leaves are still not all colored in fall colors, but it was beautiful anyway. The sun shone through the leaves so bright, that you almost needed sunglasses. We even saw people wandering around barefoot, like it was a warm summer day. What day would be more perfekt to take a fall photo walk.
Yay, it was such a fun vacation in Denmark last week. We were 20 people – mostly families with kids between 8 and 14 years. And most of us didn’t know each other before, but we got along so very well, that we already plan the next vacation in two years.
We lived on a big farm near Odense and were on tour every day – we visited the zoo of Odense, took a walk on the North coast of Fuenen, Odense, Nyborg and naturally Kopenhagen. If you ever get the chance to visit Kopenhagen, do it. It is such a beautiful city. Never seen a city so alive and young. It’s definitely one of my favorite capital cities in Europe.
Escpecially the zoo of Odense was worth a visit. You have close encounters with all animals, you can even stroke tapirs and reindeers. In the penguin building you are standing so close to them, that you can actually count their feathers. And manatees give you a kiss at the pane.
But the most fun we had playing games in the evenings. Billiard, tabletop soccer, ping-pong, card games and parlor games till it was late, very late. We tried a whole lot of new parlor and card games. Now we have some ideas for Christmas presents 🙂
And then there were the photoshoots. Did I mention that I love to shoot jumping people? That’s how I look, when I take these photos. 😉
It was so much fun to take these pictures on the beach. First the kids, then the grown-ups and finally every single family… jumped and jumped and jumped. And we did a lot of other fun photoshoots too, for example the falling leaves or a fall fight with one family. Really missed the whole group the next days. Especially the long, relaxed breakfast together every morning. Can’t wait for the Denmark revival meeting, where we will look at the photos together and remember this special week.
I can’t walk by a swing 😉 Do you?
wish you all a good start into the new week

It’s time to get crafty. Love this season, because I always feel like cuddling under a warm blanket with a hot tea at hand, browsing in magazines for new craft ideas and make them real on rainy days. And how about this cute owl sitting next to you, while you’re reading? by the Diary of Daves Wife
This door wreath is adorable and I love especially the warm and sunny colors. It must have been a lot of work to cut out all of these leaves, but it was worth it. Amazing.

This idea is just wonderful – how about a card filled with some real leaves to send someone special fall greetings?
by Cori Kindred
Or make a collection of pinecones or something similar like chestnuts, acorns and so on with your kids. It will definitely be a wonderful fall decoration for your home.
How about graditude leaves? Just cut out some leaves – maybe use a stamp to get the right shape – and then write on the back everything you are thankful for. Displayed on your wall it will remind you to be thankful everyday throughout the fall season.

My special favorite fall DIY – leave stamps. Just look at the different shapes and imagine how gorgeous they must look on paper in green, brown, yellow and orange.
