Have a super Sunday, my friends!
Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST! If you have found that your post has been removed...then please read the instructions!

It's Show & Tell Friday!
Hello my friends...welcome to "Show & Tell" Friday!
This fun filled Friday event is hosted by Kelli over at There Is No Place Like Home! Thank you, Kelli...for being such a sweet hostess and giving us the opportunity to "Show & Tell" our goodies!
Please go over to Kelli's and see what she has going today and while you're there you can check out all of the other Show & Tell participants!
The drive from Switzerland into Germany was so beautiful! The rolling hills of the German countryside were so lush and green...and so well MANICURED!!! It just amazed me! All of the pasture land seemed to be freshly mowed...it all looked so neat and tidy! In fact, Germany was probably the most tidy country that I've ever seen (as well as Switzerland). We actually saw an elderly German woman down on her hands and knees trimming her grass with a pair of scissors! Can you believe it? Litter was nowhere to be found!!! Bavaria is just breathtakingly beautiful!!!
I just loved the quaint little German town of Fussen. It's a bit "touristy" since the famous castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are nearby, but it was such a pretty little town! The large, steep roofed, multi-story buildings are all painted in pretty pastel colors! Look...pink buildings!!! Happy Pink Saturday!!!
Little ol' me...standing in the town square of Fussen, Germany.
The local pharmacy.
Just look at the Trompe L'Oeil painting on the store front of this old pharmacy...isn't it fabulous? Ooooh...and the colors are so beautiful...peach, blue, and lavender! I would have loved to watch the artist paint this!!!
The Hotel Hirsch
This was probably my favorite hotel that we stayed in while in Europe! It was everything that this little ol' American girl expected a European hotel to be! I believe that the building was quite old...or it appeared to be. Our room was on the second floor. Ohhh, you should have seen the beautiful carved wooden staircase...it was gorgeous! Big wide halls that were filled with numerous German antiques....such as this pretty handpainted armoire that you see below. We found the hotels of Europe to be very accomidating...Hotel Hirsch cost about $90 for a night's stay. Oh my, they really put out a spread for breakfast too...not just a donut and cup of coffee like American motel/hotels do!
Schloss (Castle) Hohenschwangau
Just lil' ol' me again. Hehe! Taking a little break from the serious uphill climb.
The inner courtyard of Neuschwanstein Castle.
The following photos have all been taken from the internet. Once again, we were not allowed to take photos inside Neuschwanstein....but I really wanted you to see just how beautiful and regal that this castle is.
Well my friends...I hope you enjoyed the tour through Bavaria and the castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein! See...fairy tales do come true!!! I married my "Knight in Shining Armor" and he took me on a honeymoon trip to the castles!!! I'll never forget it for as long as I live!!!
