Wow. So after feeling like I've been punched in the stomach and knocked down, I'm finally on my way to recovering and getting back up. Sorry if it seemed as if I'd fallen off the face of the earth but I think I may be back more often again! I won't bore you with the silly details of my currently drama filled life, but instead bore you with the drama of my ancestors life! Yay...! So, in my last post I mentioned my family once owning a castle, and today I'm here with proof.
Once upon a time, in land far away (well not too far from me now) there lived a happy swiss family in a happy castle. These happy people called themselves a swiss translation for "bird of prey". A good name for my old family, very intimidating and superior (like me...!). well, these happy intimidating superior people mistreated there peasants who worked very hard for them. Sadly the peasants grew tired of being mistreated and decided to revolt against the poor birds of prey kicking them out of the castle. This made the happy, intimidating, superior, and now poor people very sad. So in an act of desperation the "birds of prey" decided to change there once intimidating name to the very peaceful "peacock"! Yay! With this new name they confronted there once peasants and asked if they would once again work very hard and let the peacocks have there castle back. Sadly the peasants thought this was a bad idea and sent my dear ancestors packing. Filled with shame, desperation, and a keen sense of adventure they soon left for the great America and many many many years later had me. yay again! Because, since they had me, I was able to go to this now crumbling castle of mine to take pictures to share with you. (Are you still reading? because if this was anyone else's story i'd be long zoned out!) So to spare you, on to the pictures!
Welcome to my castle!
This takes you to my staircase...
This is my staircase!
I don't really know what this is, but I shall call it mine!
And finally my view...
Sorry I have no crafty things to post this time, But next time I'll be sure to show something handmade!
