A fresh Munich neighborhood walk + lots of news

In my Creative Courage ecourse this week, our topic is adding more daily adventure to our lives to awaken our creative spirits. This morning I went for a neighborhood walk, and I had so much fun making photos, I decided to share them with you here too :)

I walked by one of my favorite local shops

that specializes in handmade jewelry with an nostalgic, whimsical touch.

Each piece is unique

and the window displays are always unusual and fun to see. 

Many of the pendants have small pictures, words, or photos embedded in them - such a creative, lovely idea.

Across the street, there is a handmade ceramics shop

with lots of interesting, elegant home decor.

Doppler is another personal favorite

that delights with vintage style and humor.

I noticed these silvery seasonal holiday pieces

and advent calendars 

in every shape and size you could imagine.

Of course these beautiful German cakes caught my eye

and these gourmet goodies certainly looked delightful.

A florist shop with fresh, colorful blooming flowers made me smile

as did this cute little red house snuggled between the big, tall buildings of the city. 

What kind of adventures have you been having lately? 

Have you ever gone on an "artist's date" with yourself?
