  3. Charles,
    It's Independence Day - Christmas edition. ;-)

    Thank you, Richies and Butternut Squash! :-)

  4. I have never seen anything like that. Amazing. They must be glorious at night.
    The practical part of me thinks they must be bears to install but worth it.
    Thank you so much for stopping by.

  5. okay, now you are really making me homesick. if you do rotenturm strasse i might start crying here in my office right out loud.

  6. Hello Merisi! I've been so busy, it took a few days to make it over here to visit. That was funny that you posted a photo of the tinsel, just after I'd mentioned it. Yes, that's exactly the type of tinsel I was thinking about! Lametta is the name in interesting that the same tinsel is used all over the world. Is it still popular there? It is not commonly used anymore in the US. The photos on your blog are lovely!

  7. Beautiful elegant photos of a Vienna Christmas. I just love coming here to see your tidbits of your world.
