The Castle on Everyone’s Bucket List – Neuschwanstein

This castle looks pretty amazing, can imagine it would take a couple of days (at least) to explore it all but has stunning surroundings and looks like a perfect relaxing retreat :)

Neuschwanstein-Castle, Germany

When I was in my early 20s & backpacking around Europe, I had visions of what dreamy landscapes & majestic castles I would see. While Italy and Greece were at the top of my list for countries to explore, one image stood out in my mind as the best of Europe; it was Neuschwanstein Castle. I couldn’t imagine anything more beautiful. Pictures didn’t seem real. I needed to see it for myself. I never made it to Germany on that trip so Neuschwanstein remained on my bucket list for more than a decade… until yesterday! I finally made it to my fantastical castle & it was everything I imaged.

Handcrafted Personalised VW T4 Bunting

We were recently asked by a customer if we could create personalised bunting in a VW T4 campervan design. This was to be created in the colours and name to match the recipients own vehicle.

After some design work we had four Volkswagen vans laser cut from 3mm MDF which we then primed, fine tuned the intricate detail and prepared to hand paint the bunting.

We had to mix the colour of the paint to match the customers requirements, this part is always trial and error to get the colour just right… for this product we needed the paint to be a particular shade of greenish-blue with a black bonnet and silver detailing.

This bunting was to be personalised with the name “Jade” – we painted the lettering in metallic white.

Before being assembled the entire product was finished with glitter varnish which gives a nice sheen to the paint and sparkles in the sunlight. Once we had glued the lettering in place, the personalised bunting was strung onto white organza ribbon.

We have lots of new campervan/caravan related products in the pipeline and each can be handcrafted to your requirements. If you would like to discuss any of our products please email us at admin@cardsandcandlesforalloccasions.co.uk

We hope you like our latest product and would love to hear your thoughts :-)

Exploring a Less Fearsome Coral World in St. Thomas

eljay1980:

What an awesome experience – I’d love to do this but my inability to swim makes the option pretty impossible.

Coral World, St. Thomas, USVI

I can’t breathe. I can’t get my breath. There’s too much air; it’s choking me. I can’t get back to the surface. What do I do? The weights are too heavy. I’m going to drown… I’m sorry, Athena. Mommy can’t come home to you. I’m not going to make it this time. I’ve failed.
