Munich Jewels & My Knight in Shining  Armor



The Rathaus Glockenspiel! So we have finally made it to Germany! By this point in the photo diary we had already taken a night train from Paris (I spared you those pics) and we have arrived to a very cold Munich.

Gregg Drawing @ the Square CLick Image!

click on this little thumbnail of Gregg's drawing to see it's gestural mastery up close!

We saw the collection at the Royal Palace in Munich. I saw jewels and crowns unlike any of those I have every seen before. Now you may think Gregg is my Knight in shining armor (and you would be correct), however I wouldn't say no to this kind of Knight in shining armor either:


Click on this neck piece to see it in all its glory!

A different kind of colorful eye-candy isn't it?

What would I do with palaces, crowns and knights in shining armor anyway? When all I seem to need is in my beautiful puppies, their wagging tails and cries of joy when I walk through the door. Still, not sure I would turn down a palace...especially if it meant I didn't have to commute to work anymore!!

Palaces are cold and a hassle to keep clean... not commuting, well, that is tempting. Great sketches by your knight!
