Well my desk this week isn't a desk it's a dining table here in my daughter's house in Lueneburg, Germany. I couldn't get away without crafting in some way this week and you can see fabric on the table as I am making a copy of a hat and cape, in warm red fleece, for my little grandee. It makes a change from my usual mess!
If you are snowbound, or not, in any part of the world, why not pop over to our illustrious leader Julia's blog... Stamping Ground and you'll be able to peruse over 100 more desks.... messy or tidy..... you'll have to find out in your snoops!
Here, we seem to have escaped the bad weather that's sweeping through England and whilst there is snow here, it's only a smattering and the odd flurry. It's really cold at a few degrees below and a colder spell is forecast for Thursday.
Late this afternoon we went into town to see the Christmas Market....Weihnachtsmarkt.... in full glory, all so beautifully lit up and, of course, we partook of our first gluhwein of the festive season.... Neet, I had one for specially for you and it was just wonderful and warmed me through so well! That's two new mugs to add to my collection! If you don't claim back your deposit you get to keep the mugs and they are different each year. I've got to make a confession here... we did take our own home made mince pies with us to eat with the gluhwein!! Is that a first I ask??
The Raathaus (Town Hall) looks amazing with Renaissance style images projected on it's facade.
I bought these tiny wooden decorations specially for my friend Neet who is making an Advent House... I think they'll fit perfectly and I put my finger in the corner of the pic so you can see the scale. Hope she likes them!
Lots more photos to share so I'll post some more tomorrow.... watch this space!
