Grow Your Blog - A Welcome

2 Bags Full

Welcome, dear new visitor.
Please, come in, look around and drink a cup of tea with me.
I have fresh flowers concerned - 
a breath of spring in the cold winter time.
Or do you prefer snowballs ?

I'm Masha , 54 years old, living in Germany in a small old town.
I'm  blogging  to share the beauty 
that I see in my neighborhood and everywhere.
With my little camera (Nikon coolpix4600 ) 
I like to hold on beautiful moments .
Since 7 months I am learning English, 
to open my blog for the wide world.
And it brings me joy to read how people live in other countries
 and see how it looks there.
Not to read in the newspaper, but of the individual. 
I find that exciting .
The mostly I tell in pictures
 it doesn't need any languages.

I love old houses and factories , castles, parks , gardens, flowers, cats, angels ... beautiful illustrated books, poems, the seasons and colors in nature ... vintage clothing and much more .

Writing a blog is like a trip to an unknown destination .
This is not so important , but the way .
All the things we encounter every day.
Every single moment.
Do you like to go a piece of the way with me?

Now join in the carriage
 and fly with winged horses to the next blog.
On you still much is waiting on the trip today .
And if you like, return .
I'm waiting for you here .

Thanks for visit.
Much love.


  1. what a welcoming invitation! I'm ready to see more. Your English is excellent, Mascha.

  2. I just got your comment -- don't worry -- blogger is acting weird this afternoon - would not work for me -- but is working now -- if yours still is not working -- just give it a bit --- it will work later ---


  3. Hallo und guten Morgen!
    na, auch unterwegs ;-) Wir haben seit gestern etwas größere Schneebälle zu bieten und wenn jetzt noch die Sonne dazu käme, wäre es ein perfekter aber ziemlich kalter Wintertag für eine Foto-'Safari'. Doch im Moment nutzen wir alle noch die Wärme im Haus: Allegra pennt wieder auf der Fensterbank. Maus kuschelt im Bett und der Herr des Hauses erholt sich dort ebenfalls von der anstrengenden Woche. Und ich kann mich gar nicht entscheiden, b ich nun lieber Vogel- & Eichhörnchen-TV schaue oder in fremde Blogwelten abtauche ...
    Ich wünsche Dir und Deinen Miezen einen wundervollen Wintertag!
    Liebe Grüße

  4. What a great welcome post and your photos are fantastic. Have a great day, Toni

  5. Hello Masha and what a beautiful welcome. Europe is one of my all time places to be. I just want to visit each and every country. The rich history, the most delicious foods and kind hearted people like yourself. I appreciate you learning English. Very's not such an easy many rules! Hope you enjoy the party.

  6. What an interesting idea for a blog! One of the reasons I wanted to participate was to find blogs outside my usual area of quilting! I have not traveled much outside the US but I very much love the pictures you are sharing as my father spent 8 years living in Germany and said it was very beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your blog today!

    On a side note: Have you considered joining "Bloglovin" (identifying your blog on their site) it would be a way for the site to recommend your blog to people based on other blogs they follow even if they have never been to your site!

  7. I'm sorry you're not feeling too well, dear Mascha, but thank you for dropping by my blog today :)
    I was so sure I was already a follower of your blog - but I was wrong! I am now :)
    I ADORE your skirt btw it's just gorgeous *sigh*
    Take care xx

  8. Hi Mascha, I'm visiting from GYB party and firstly I have to say I'm so impressed with your English after only 7 months! Wow, you're amazing. Your photos are moody and atmospheric and I look forward to seeing more.

  9. I love your pictures and I love your approach to your blog. Learning from other's different experiences is great fun and a wonderful way to grow. I also love that you have learned English ... would you like to teach me some German? I would love that. Anyway, back to my carriage, but fear not, I shall return.

    1. Why not? If you have any questions -
      I'm trying to learn alone, by doing. Reading. Writing (speaking I miss -)... Often helps me google translator. And I read through my well, what it has translated. Try to remember that, next time I'm doing it alone ... so it goes for me. A possible way -

  15. Hey Mascha, your photography is lovely. I have a pinterest board dedicated to all things creepy, crusty and crumbely because I love old places so much.
