Festival of Leaves 2016: Last Week!

img_20161127_114342One more week to go!! I already started listening to Christmas songs again. Whoops… Also, NaNoWriMo is nearly over and I’m getting a bit more sleep again. Nearly reached the word count, I’m at 45000! 😀

Your photos this week show how many leaves are already gone. More on the ground than on the trees. For those of you who already made their last entry this week: I’m so thankful that you participated, I enjoyed every photo you sent. You are amazing!

Have a lovely week … and last week of this festival for 2016!!

lots of love



Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 12


Next week is the last week, my friends!

Leaves are falling so quickly now, you have to be very lucky to find ones that are still in full colour. It’s so sad to see them fade, to see winter creeping in. I believe, though, that we had a wonderful time enjoying our pictures. Those photo galleries make me so happy!

Have a lovely week!


(Anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo this year? I need a wordpress writing buddy! It’s getting increasingly difficult to come up with words every day 😉  )

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 11

Dear Autumn Lovers!

After a tough week it seems like for all of you the sun has shown again. It seems, though, that autumn is slowly coming to an end… As I went for a walk yesterday and all the leaves were beautifully illuminated.

We have a new participant: Tish! Welcome!

I hope you are all having a nice week

Lots of love



Those galleries are always a highlight of my week 😉

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 10

Dear leaf lovers 🙂

The sun granted us some hours of her shine today and the leaves gleamed and sparkled. It’s the most magical time of autumn. I absolutely love your pictures and I also loved your music suggestions. Some new songs to add to my playlist 😉

Now I have a new question for you: What are you reading right now or do you have any good autumn book suggestions? I’m falling in love with “A little life” by Hanya Yanagihara right now…

Thank you all for taking part and have a nice week!

I’m doing NaNoWriMo right now and if you wish, you can take a look at my other blog 🙂

Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 9

Hello my dear leaf lovers!

This morning when I looked out of the window I couldn’t see anything. Fog everywhere. Then I looked at all your stunning photographs and that made me so happy! Thank you so much for all your entries!!

I have another little question for you this week. What music do you like to listen to in Autumn? At the moment I have Simon and Garfunkel on my playlist 😉

Have a lovely week! xxx


Here are my pictures for this week 🙂img_20161030_115302


Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 8

Hello and welcome to Week 8 of the Festival!

As autumn goes on, your photos get more and more colourful. We also have a new participant, Middle Europe’s blog!

This weekend I visited Potsdam with a friend, it’s near Berlin and it is an absolutely beautiful city. So many cute little roads with shops and restaurants and markets… We loved it.


It’s one of my favourite things to do in autumn: Visit new places and explore cities. Which are your favourite cities? Where do you love to go?


Have a nice week and thank you so much for taking part!  x


Festival of Leaves 2016: Week 7

Hello and welcome to week 7!

Your photos are always stunning but this week I found it particularly difficult to decide for a winner… They are just so amazing! I love your entries so much!

I loved the collection Jude made this week and it should be appreciated in whole. However, I adored Dawn’s eye for detail in her road scene with the sun glimpsing through the leaves. She’s our winner for the week!

I always have a great time going through the pictures and it gives me that special autumn feeling. Moreover, I’m constantly on the watch for colourful leaves now 😉

Thank you so much for taking part and have a lovely week!
