  1. Schöne Bilder Karin! Ich habe eine Jahre lang in Tubingen studiert, also für mich gibt's viele schöne Erinnerungen mit dem Schwarzwald.

    Looks like you had fun too!

  2. So picturesque!
    I imagine one gets a hearty appetite in the countryside. The bread, wine and sausage- perfect answer!

  3. Dear Karin, Welcome back! Love your pictures, especially the clocks (I paint similar clocks)
    Looking forward to seeing more.
    Did you stay in one particular place in the Schwarzwald? We are going in September and I am looking for a nice Gasthaus or small Hotel.

  4. Such gorgeous photos of a beautiful part of the world. I love the stack of wood piled up on the roadway in the first photo - speaks of a way of life that still exists in the Black Forest.
    Lovely linens, too. Sigh.

  5. Well, it that's a 'trailer', we're in for a real treat! Love it all.

  6. oh you have me seriously drooling over all your finds!!! looking forward to hear more. Colx
