The small village of Durnstein - click through for lots more Vienna city center - click for more A different street promising a Christmas wonderland at night! - click for more Glimpse of the Night Market in Vienna - click for more Tiny pieces for nativity sets - click for more Ornaments not behind glass! - click for more The gold section - click for more
  • We've enjoyed all the gorgeous old buildings in the small villages - this is in Durnstein. They grow apricots here and we had an awesome tasting of liquors, chocolate and jams here!
  • The city streets of Vienna's city center are covered with Christmas lights. Each street has its own pattern. Because Austria is not getting oil and natural gas from Russia right now energy costs prohibit these wonderful lights from being on all the time. Streets are lit from only 4 to 10 pm each night.
  • A different street promising a Christmas wonderland at night!
  • Here's a glimpse of tonight's market in Vienna.
  • I cannot imagine choosing from this! It was a booth (there are lots and lots of these scattered about) stuffed FULL of millions of tiny pieces for nativity sets. Everything from wooden mangers to people, animals, village and farm equipment - you name it. They are serious here with tiny cords and candles to make your manger appear to be lit by tiny firelight (with REAL) little smoking stacks and such. Enchanting!
  • And of course I had to stop here and pick up a few things! There is no glass separating you from all those hanging glass balls and they just pull them down for you if there aren't any in the baskets down below.
  • This was the gold section of ornaments in that same booth. I wore out by the time I got past the white, silver and these and totally missed taking a pic of the red section!

At Prague Castle - click through for lots more Our Ruckl Glass Factory Tour - click for more Christmas markets at the Thurn and Taxis castle - click for more
  • On the left: St. Vitus Cathedral. Our group started the day at the Prague Castle.
    Don't we look snappy in our red hats?
  • This is a pic from our Ruckl Glass Factory Tour. They have been hand blowing and cutting Czech crystal since 1846. Wild to see normal guys in shorts, flip flops and Croc shoes with no eye protection! This is definitely not the US! Anyway, fun to realize the beautiful and elegant glass starts in a well worn hot shop! You'll see a lot more detail when you click to the larger pic.
  • One of my favorite Christmas markets is at the Thurn and Taxis castle.
    Straight out of a Hallmark movie - only It's REAL!

Sunday Nov 27 - click through for lots more A shop full of felt - click for more Juggling in the street - click for more Have a pretzel! - click for more
  • Spent the day visiting Salzburg... we passed a little restaurant with my name on It!
  • This booth was stuffed full of colorful needle felted wool animals, ornaments and dolls!
    Nestled in a courtyard of a square you can see the tree trunk growing right in the booth space!
  • Here was a guy doing all sorts of incredible balancing and juggling tricks out in the street. He was a riot to watch!
  • They were a foot in size!

An early pic of part of the market before it got busy - click for more Folklore dinner in Prague - click through for lots more hot cheese filling in bread bowls - click for more Handmade bobbin lace - click for more
  • An early pic of part of the market before it got busy. You can see that wierd dome blocking the cathedral view. I thought it was awful, contemporary art! But we found out they cover their more fragile statues and fountains in glass cases for the winter to protect them from ice and snow damage.
  • Our delightful folklore dinner in Prague... this is a family-owned restaurant serving authentic Czech dinner with a charming evening of entertainment. Of course when they made all of us participate, it added to the chaos!
  • Here they are serving hot cheese filling in bread bowls and grating the cheese from this huge wheel for the topping.
  • Handmade goods are the best at the markets... here is bobbin lace!

  • The little gnomes in my favorite booth!
  • Last night's little market in Vilshofen... they had a whole display of Christmas trees decorated with children's handmade ornaments - from all the local kindercares!
  • Need a new nativity? You wouldn't believe the beautiful sets they offer here!
  • So charming!

Kimberly was JUST here for our Grand Summer Stitching Event but the party sold out so fast that we've re-booked her to come back this next year! Pictured here is Hummingbird's Garden - it WILL NOT BE your project in 2023. I put it here to show you the beautiful exclusive sampler she just did for us... it's kind of like a 'serving suggestion!' It's not available, but you'll get something just as wonderful from her class! Gorgeous florals, pin cushions and samplers - our Samplers Not Forgotten page will show you lots of Kimberly's offerings.

Your Friday/Saturday She Shed class with Kimberly is limited to 45. The event fee of $250 includes all the projects, yummy snacks and a few door prizes and favors... along with a lot of stitching fun. Meals are on your own - our 13 restaurants within walking distance of the shop do not disappoint!
