Christmas in Schönbrunn: Of Angels and Stars and Other Heavenly Things


Shellac-etched glass star

Handcarved wooden angels in glass bell

Santa and Christkind scene in a tinderbox
Handcarved wooden figures
crafted by toymakers in the village of Seiffen
in the German Erzgebirge region

(keeping an eye on the punch line?)

Woolen sheep on cloud
(wouldn't hold still)

Pictures taken tonight at the
Christmas Market at
Schönbrunn Castle



  1. LOVE the star and the matchbox! Must stop by there soon myself :)

  2. Oh yes, those heavenly sheep. I'm with Catharina, I love the matchbox.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
