If you visit me regularly you know that I love repurposing and upcycling. But I also love photography. And I especially love to share with you my Greece. Yes, "my Greece" because I usually shy away from the typical postcard beach pictures.
Today I'd like to share with you photos I took during our month-long Christmas celebration when my town was all decked out in it's finery. And a visit to my favorite shop. These are my favorites from around town.
I would like to take a minute to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
If you should chance upon a pomegranate throw it down on the ground. If it smashes it means the household will have prosperity and fertility, as much as the seeds that come tumbling out of the fruit. We greeks love our traditions!
It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! Not only is it Christmas, but it is also time for our monthly Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge.
For those of you visiting for the first time, we are a group of bloggers from all over the world and we get together once a month to share our projects and traditions from each of our countries. This month we are going to focus on Christmas traditions in Greece. Let's get started because I have lots to share with you.
We are well into December and I have been so busy with Christmas decorations and projects that I've neglected to share my monthly Facebook photos with you. I am correcting that right now! Here are my Facebook photos for November.
And just in case you have no idea what this is, I upload "a photo of the day" on my Facebook page here, every day and at the end of the month I present the best picked by you. My way of saying "thank you" to all of my followers. I have added the whole series on the bottom of this post.
Many of you know that I live in a town in Southern Greece. Our farm is located right outside the town, which is situated on a plain between the Corinthian Bay and the mountains. Lately there has been a lot of activity near the farm. There is a new railroad being built and the station is located nearby. I happened to visit the other day and instead of the usual road I saw a mountain of dirt that led up to an overpass that will eventually allow the traffic to go over the railroad tracks.
Well, I just had to sneak on up there to take some pictures because it was a once in a lifetime chance for me. Anyway once the road is finished, the vehicles will mar this pristine view. This was my chance and I grabbed it. I may have been trespassing just a little but we won't tell! Let's walk up together and see the view from the railroad overpass.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
