Revisits

I love a good revisit to my photos, in the moment so many shots feel less than. But with a little time and a different eye, shots that were tossed aside turn out really good.

Thankfully the weather here is starting¬†to warm up (then immediately freeze) but I I’m hoping to start seeing some more green and hopefully some more blue skies. I know you guys are too.

While I’m here on my Butt, What do you guys Want to See?

I’m mending well but till I get the all clear from my doctor here I sit, thankfully there isn’t much going on right now in Ohio so I want to know in this new year what would you like to see from me.

Or if there is anything else you can think of let me know in the comments!

My Treasures

So here’s my new St. George and the Red Dragon of Wales hanging with The Union Jack and St Andrews I brought last time I went to Ren fest. My set is almost complete, just need Northern Ireland, well if I truly wanted to make the set I should buy the republic of Ireland as well, we’ll see.

Admittedly I goofed when I bought the Scottish Royal flag blanking for a moment thinking it was the red dragon so I ended up with an extra flag. No worries.

so here’s some of the other things I bought-

my Scottish dirk- gorgeous right?

My flute. I wanted a bodhran but the cheapest one I saw there was $68. OWWW! I do plan to try to learn it though. I also got this spiky ring but the photo sucked of it.

So I think that’s everything from Ren fest this time round ( I might do a second glace to see if there are more good pictures to which I will post), but hopefully we do go back this year and it doesn’t take another nine years.

A Story for All to Enjoy

I know I said I’d have pictures from the Egyptian festival but when I said that I was hoping against hope that it wouldn’t be a bust. Sadly it was.

BUT!

I bring glad tidings my Lords and Ladies from the 16th century to this wonderful realm of WordPress and my followers around the net.

I attended the Ohio Renaissance Festival yester morn. There was great feasts to be had, lots of things to make you guineas disappear. and wonderful show for your eyes to behold. So take this trek along with me. Do not be frighted all are welcomed.

The lovely and most beloved Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth the First of England and Ireland was in attendance on this day and we were glad for it.

Many a musician played their instruments both with skill and grace that one could not help but be entranced.

The day was not without its hooligans, the pirates….I mean the actors put on quite a show and the tauntings of the tomato toss did not escape me.

The day concluded for me with a joust. A great but rather one sided battle.

With that I sent for my steed and with my pockets lighter, my arms filled with treasures I left for this century.

So that is my tale and I swear I will go now and edit so that you may see with thine own eyes the fun that was had. And with some hope I may return to the festival in the coming weeks, so that I may bring you more great tales.

More from the Dublin Irish Festival

I finally got my butt into gear and edited some more photos and I should have some more by next week from an Egyptian festival.

The Wishing tree, you tie your wish to the tree and have the winds carry it to the gods. I would love to try it some time.
