The picture above is the village of Lupburg, our home away from home while in Bavaria. Our house is on the right, below the onion dome church . The people are friendly, helpful and best of all, love to keep things "in order."

Traditional Swiss paper cutting--much more detailed than the German paper cutting

Great idea for a bed...kids simply slide under the parents!

Stephanie, Lindsey and I took a drive into the mountains to learn about the traditional swiss folk art of paper cutting.  The little village had a quaint museum--Musée du Vieux Pays-d'Enhaut-- featuring the history of the people and included a vast collection of paper cuttings dating from the 1850s.  Following our museum stop, we asked the clerk if there was a shop in town that sold paper cuttings.  He directed us up the street to the gallery of an artist who was in her shop working on a current piece.  Both Steph and I bought a little souvenir from her.
