Finally I finished this cowl: apricot Lambswool, knitted and felted, some lovely oval MoP buttons and a crochet flower! It is nice and comfi and cozy and warmed my neck all day today while I was at the exhibition; days are getting cooler....
It's three days Christmas Market in town! I walked over it today and met several people I know that are exhibiting, too. Athmosphere was not yet much like Christmas as it is nasty icy winds and loads of rain. The entire city is closed and covered with booths of all kinds. Here you can see my fave deco and soap stands, both from people I know since long and I have exhibited with! I wonder how it will go on for them....wish them luck! I will have a small private market tomorrow only! I am very curious how this will turn out!
A few days ago I received this funny Thanksgiving Card from dear Lyn in Alaska!

I posted another lovely rose today, just click and get it if you like - enjoy! ❀
To be honest: I am not really a fan of Reds! But around this time of the year I am more fond of it! It makes everything look warm and nice and it is quite traditional. Went shopping today, bought nothing red, but this silver heart and I thought that these large red decos are worth a look.... enjoy!
It is soon time to send out Christmas Greetings to all you love and like! Here's a Norwegian Bull Finch that you can take....when the snow is high they come close to the house to pick up some goodies! Í«Í«Í«Í«
These wristwarmers have been ready for quite some time, but I thought them to be a bit boring, so I modified them: made some stitches with a slightly shimmering cross-stitch thread around the hearts and added some seagreen beads! The result is ok now and I like them better. I used lambswool for them; fulling was made in the washing machine at 40°C. I discovered the pink yarn I used for the hearts shrinks more, although it is the same quality then the rest. This way the wristwarmers became an extra more cufflike appearance! They are super to wear to thick sweaters and coats as they are quite narrow and won't collide with it......have a lovely, successful week! òóòó òó òó òó
While walking the doggy today I passed by these happy geese. Probably this is the last month of their lives... they were so kind and funny and friendly... I am happy that I closed down with eating too much meat, so no one of these cuties will have to be killed for me.
On the other side of the road a new life had just begun; we came across the birth of this late calf. It looked sturdy and well; what a joy!Y
I made a stop at Imke's little shop. Please visit her blog at:
A happy new week to you! There is another shop just around the corner offering now the most beautiful, shimmering Christmas ornaments. I got me a long cone in sturdy colours, very special, and with a lot of glimmer. They have a large shed full with the finest deco stuff. Like also this tablecloth in the middle; very Scandinavian.....Y
Today I was in town and I saw the first lovely Christmas decorations in several windows. I was a little late, so my fave shop was already closed and I could do only some window shopping...lucky me somehow - otherwise some of these items would have ended in my shopping bag! This way I probably saved a lot of money, but isn't this just adorable? Don't you agree?
I still have some of these Polar Bear cards and I think they are just right for Aputsiaq (you ALL should have a look into her beautiful Blog....!). But as a Polar Bear collector I will share this cute shot with everyone intrested; think this is such an adorable moment caught in the photo....***************
An emotional Day today! 20 years of Freedom! For all of Germany and the entire World! Fall of the Wall 20 years ago! This was a special time! I remember it as if it was only yesterday: I rented out two rooms of my house for a young East-Berlin couple; they didn't believe that they could travel and be free and were afraid to go back to Berlin. So they stayed a few months, untill the situations were cleared and East Germany was History.....
When I was a little girl I had a treasure: an old cigar box filled with the prettiest old shimmering decorative scraps, what we call here Oblaten! This box is still somewhere, but I just can't find it....this worries me....but I have a few reprints from old designs that I would like to share with you. If you like you can take it as a free vintage clip!Will add some more soon! Think they are so beautiful and hope that I will find this old box as I had some really gorgeous fairytale scraps in it....
