My Spoonflower Shop
Newly opened!


Far away lands.

I have been on an adventure, can you guess where too?
I have been to a land far away, high up in the clouds,

A land of clocks,

and bells,

A place where wood is carved,

where there is always the sound of water,

A magical place of lakes and mountains,

You guessed right, Switzerland!

And now, time to catch up.

Welcome back! Did you see any cuckoo clocks?! I had a picture of one in my first colouring book, which had a different item for each country - always remember it! Hope you've had a great holiday, it's somewhere I've always wanted to go.

Yes Jules, hundreds of cuckoo clocks! Your colouring book must have made a deep impression on you to remember it so clearly now. Do you still have it I wonder?


Hello Hello from Far Away. I have not seen a posting from you in a long time.. I love your adventure photos.. Switzerland is certainly a Magical Land.. Loved hearing the Bells ringing in the Mts and of course those rushing streams sing a lovely song... Hugs Judy

Welcome back! And thank you for sharing those pictures with us. Switzerland is nextdoor to my grand-mother's corner of France and, as a child, we would occassionally pop over the border and spend a few hours near Geneva. Happy memories!

Wonderful pics - Switzerland is on my list of places that I want to go! Looks like you had a great time.

Rowan said...

Welcome back! What fabulous photos - I spent my honeymoon in Interlaken a long, long time ago:)

Well now you have been away and been somewhere delightful by the looks. Makes me think of fresh air and clear skies looking at those photos. So many places I would like to see. Love cuckoo clocks, we had one when I was little, it always fascinated me. Perhaps we can get back to blogging and artwork etc now? :)

Always good to get away and then to come back to one's work with a new perspective. Clocks and bells... I like those, oh, and carved wood, too.

Happy you're back! What a picture perfect holiday. Love the scenery - and the clock, of course. :)

acornmoon said...

It's nice to be back and am very grateful to all of you for staying around and for your comments. Millefeuilles, that corner of France is equally beautiful as is Geneva.
Rowan, I think you will be happy to learn that Interlaken
has preserved the large meadow in the centre of the town, so everyone gets a great view of The Jungfrau.

Welcome back Valerie! That first clock is amazing and that sheep, I just made a felted black welsh mountain sheep like that! Look forward to hearing more tales of your wandering.

Elizabeth Wix said...

How lovely to go on a trip!
I haven't been to Switzerland for almost 50 years and long to return.
Hope you had a splendid time.

How wonderful :) The perfect destination for an autumn holiday!

Lovely, just lovely! Next to Britain, it is a country I would much love to visit. Then I can put away my wish list, for it will be complete. At least I own a Swiss Cuckoo Clock!
