Wiener Melange/Last Vienna Post

Enough with my holiday snaps...

I'm now home in New York trying to digest all I saw in Vienna. (I sometimes think I enjoy my vacations more in retrospect.) Now I recognize many of the places in Merisi's splendid posts. So herewith, for my long suffering readers, a few little last glimpses...

The rose garden

reflections in a museum

more of the same.

Some elegant hats

and some suitably ancient writing

 Egon Schiele chocolate (hazelnut flavor). Who knew!

Some delights in an antique shop. Needless to say, I have several billion more photos which I won't bore you with. New York has been stunningly unphotogenic since my return. 

The bliss of hot chocolate

and country flowers.


  1. Dearest Elizabeth,
    i thoroughly enjoy your posts from Vienna!
    It is so interesting to see the city through somebody else's eyes, and yours especially.
    Vienna is bewitching, to say the least. Even though I know I shall never be a "true" Viennese, I do feel quite at home here.
    Big hug,

  2. P.S.: I sure would enjoy to see more of your Vienna!

  3. At least you have a bunch to dribble out over the coming months.

  4. Never boring Elizabeth....always a joy! x

  5. Loved your photos from Vienna. Never boring.

    I bet Monsieur Poirot loves having you back !
    The Square Ones send woofs !

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Hi Elisabeth,

    I love your pics of Vienna. I want to see more. Hope New York is NOT unphotogenic as you wrote ;-). But I´ll see from July 3rd on.
    I´m looking forward to visiting NYC.

  7. I do so agree Elizabeth - I too enjoy my holidays more in retrospect. Oh yes, I enjoy them whilst I am there but the thinking about them afterwards is even better from the comfort of my own armchair.
    Wish you hadn't posted those choccy photos - they look so inviting.

  8. It's been wonderful and such a treat visiting Vienna with you Elizabeth!
    Welcome home.....Buster will be pleased!

  9. Elizabeth, the antique shop window is so different from New York antique shop windows. It really has that Viennese touch!

    I enjoyed seeing every one of these photographs and certainly would not mind seeing more.

    Isn't this current NYC heat and humidity and pollution hard to take?


  10. Nothing to suffer here - Vienna looks like the most decoratively charming place in the world.

  11. Enjoyed all your photos! Thanks for sharing with us!

  12. Interesting photos, I like them. Now I go to drink a hot chocolate :)

  13. Though of you yesterday, out at Melk, standing near English roses!

  14. I have been thinking of you Elizabeth. Just watched an Imagine documentary on Vivian Maier. Totally absorbing programme - and I so loved her photos. I am ashamed to say I hadn't heard of her before.

  15. Hi Elizabeth....me again! Just wanted to let you know that I can't access your 'Summer' post. Don't know if it's just me or if you deleted it. I hope I can get to it later!

  16. I just must tell you that your 'Summer' blog, although showing on my side bar Elizabeth, has just not appeared.

  17. Welcome home, Elizabeth! A wonderful melange this is... And I could go for a cup of real Wiener Melange...mmm... ((HUGS))

  18. Enjoyed flipping through the Vienna posts, somewhere I never got to and like Merisi it is always fun to see one's city through someone else's eyes. Glad you had a good time.


I look forward to hearing from you!
