Update Black Cat Boutique

This is how for I got until now...
I asked my father to teach me how to make the openings in the walls
were the windows come and the door.
I measured out exactly were I wanted them to be...
And my father said... 
Well I will show you how to do it,
So I watched carefully...
while he sew out all three of the openings! :)
Just to make sure that I won't forget... for the next time...
you'll know...
Just an abslolutely great dad! :)

In the afternoon of the the first of May
I started to paint the windows and the door.
I picked out a very dangerous combination of colours...
as it seems...
No idea where I got them from lol...
Does it turn out that I have some gothic style 
somewhere deep down inside of me??? lol!
The Greek name for the celebration of 1th of MayDay is called::
'Proto Maya'...
This was me dreaming away in the afternoon...

Photos that I took this morning...

A bit closer...

Well as I was thinking where did that gothic style come from...
I should have understood the first sign better... I guess.
Because this little monster popped out of the
Easter egg that I got from the bunnies around my house lol!

What was her name again??
Does someone recognise her? 
Wasn't she somekind of actress in Schrek's movies??? lol ;)

Well it really surprised me to learn
(in the last few evenings that I've read a lot about dragons 
and more fairytales ;)
These magical creatures turned out to be seen as
 'for possible to be tamed'...
To be a very friendly companion for life!
If you have a lot of curriage?? I believe...
Nice challenge though.

And while I was on 'a dragon hunt' searching for more information,
 I admired some great artist work on this site...
She makes such stunnig art with the most fascinating stories!
Well... it's worth every second to have a peek ;)

Oh yes and last but not least...
I told you that I was going to pick flowers on the 1th of May...
I went together with my mom just along the road...
This is what I came up with:

When you might be interested...
here you can find some more history about the Wreath
 here's a closer look to my flower pickings...

So for me... No wreath lol
but a nice wild bush of only wild flowers ;)
I love them... just as much as the wreath above my door!

Have a great day you all!
