Annas Art - Kreativer Monat Juli 2013
Hello my friends - its review time again at Anna's Art - show your collective works for the month of July. so far this was my least productive month, since I spend some time away in Germany and work was insanely busy. But it is what it is - I like my cards! The two at the bottom left I showed in August on my blog, but I really made them in July - just in case somebody is wondering...
So go over to Anna's Art and link up your work! There is a prize to win and its just FUN!
And now a gazillion pictures from a medieval festival that takes part in my hometown every 4 years - its called the "Landshuter Hochzeit". Here is a short excerpt from Wikipedia:
The festival is held in memory of the wedding between George of Bavaria, the son of the Bavarian duke, and Hedwig Jagiellon, daughter of King Casimir IV Jagiellon of Poland, in 1475.
The wedding was negotiated in 1474 in Kraków through legations. The marriage was important because it was seen as a strong alliance against the Ottoman Turks. At the time, most royal marriages were not entered into because of love, but because of political motivations. It took the bride two months to travel to Landshut, where she was received by princes and bishops.
The bridal pair were married in St. Martin's Church, and the service was officiated by Salzburg's Archbishop Bernhard von Rohr. Afterwards the bridal procession proceeded through the Old Town to the Town Hall. Ten thousand people are said to have attended the affair and they were provided food and drink by the young duke's father.
Its quite a spectacle and very much worthwhile to see. About 2000 people take part in this event.
