Medieval Times

 It's incredible how I'm neglecting my blog. 
So, to remedy that I'll tell you a little bit about a nice day I spent out of time two weeks ago. 

 The medieval fest at Mons-en-Pévèle (Nord - France) wasn't the big one, but the atmosphere was really nice and we weren't bored only one minute. Workshops, artisan crafts, swords, belligerent warriors, birds of prey, horses (one of which was a handsome spanish stallion), and  people dressed with beautiful outfits...
To rent a medieval elfish dress helped me to feel so more comfortable (and warm, secondarily!!)
(unfortunately it was impossible to buy a dress here. That makes me want to make my own, but my sewing skills leave a lot to be desired!!)
There was a falconry show, and since I was one of the volunteers for it, a vulture walked on my back...
