  1. Ooooh sparkly things! Beautiful as always. I love the golden glitters. :)

  2. Is there anything more beautiful than gold and crystal at Christmas?
    Gorgeous photos Merisi! xoxo

  3. How lovely, all sparkling and festive. The last picture, is that you?

  4. I'm always torn between red and gold for Christmas ornaments.

  5. This post really puts me in the Yuletide mood :-)

  6. Bling! Lovely and festive. I need that to get into the Christmas mood...

    Lola (who would rather be somewhere in the Caribbean right now)

  7. What a gorgeous post! I love the arcade windows. <3 Vienna haunts my dreams always, but especially at this beautiful time of year. (I was in your dear city six years ago, for new year! I miss it so.) Thank you for your glorious photos, as always, Merisi!

  8. Hilary,
    I could buy the whole store! ;-)
    The atmosphere in there is so relaxed and welcoming, even cookies waiting to be nibbled.

    Carol @ TheWritersPorch,
    gold and silver and glass,
    one festive mood, I agree!

    no, I was the one taking the picture and she stepped into it. ;-)

    Charles Gramlich,
    red really brings out the Christmas spirit,
    just look at the previous two posts.

  9. Wandring Star,
    I am glad it does! :-)

    it looks luxurious, definitely,
    but is affordable.

    are you still deep in the Abruzzi working at the filmset?

  10. Renate,
    you are welcome! :-)

    I cannot believe that this is my fourth (!) Christmas here and how at home I feel, as if I had always lived here and not arrived here the stranger I was.
    I hope you can visit again soon!

  11. Sigh...Girls love sparkly...and I'm no exception...Christmas offer such a visual feast!! And you ALWAYS capture the most beautiful of anything...and now, of course, the most beautiful examples of this season!!! There is nothing like a European Christmas! Thank you! I can revisit memories here in your beautiful photos...Love you! Janine XO

  12. All that glitters can just hypnotize me! One can never have enough sparkle in one's life!!! Just lovely, Merisi.

  13. Merisi:

    Thank you! May I ask where you moved from? Vienna is such a magical city - I was just there again in the summer, and oh, how I long to return so badly! (Especially since I study classical music - composers everywhere!)

  14. Renate,
    I moved here from Washington, DC,
    which was my home for more than twenty years.

    I apologize for not always being able to answer comments, I try my best, and I hold dear every single comment of yours and all readers. I feel I have the best readership in the whole wide world and I appreciate every single one. Thank you! :-)

  15. The golden gleams of Christmas...

  16. So lovely -- the sparkle and glitter to combat the long dark nights of the season.

  17. Is the 1st one etible?
    'cus I want to bite into that gingerbread.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
