There's no place like home, that's for sure.
We arrived home and went to bed after being up for just shy of 24 hours.
Even as tired as that, I was up at 4 AM. Looks like I will need a few days to adjust.
In a quick count down post I am featuring the ornaments my husband bought at various Christmas markets along the way and gave me for my birthday.
Knowing I like snowmen he kept to that theme.
Gingerbread ornaments are common in Germany. The owner of a shop we visited said they'd last for years.
I never saw this little porcelain cutie. Bet I would have liked other ornaments at that vendor.
Every Christmas market featured a booth with wooden ornaments like this. They are very thin and can be quite ornate.
Glass ornaments are also very common. But, what I never saw were balls like this...
They were painted from the inside.
This is the same ornament...front and back.
This jolly snowman is hand painted, too.
I am looking forward to adorning my tree with all these new snowman ornaments.
18 days to go.
