Hutschenreuther Schmucksterne (porcelain star ornaments by Hutschenreuther)



They're famous and expensive, made of porcelain by a well-known porcelain manufacture. They're about the size of the palm of a hand. I have exactly one of them, and I cherish it.
Hutschenreuther releases a new collection every year. The editions are always limited and many people collect them.
Maybe I'll treat myself to a second one this year.

Merci Front-Ranger !

Bienvenue! Welcome !

In advance, may I wish you and to all Joyeux Noel - Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and all other celebrations religious and/or non-religious !!

As an amarylis comes with soil and pot... and purchased for 10$ or less (even 5$), you are right: what a gift for others and oneself in the dark time of Winter with no flowers outside ! And inside your appartment or house, so easy to grow no matter how old you are ! It makes one (and others) happy too !!

Au revoir,
hugs!

You should post that on Jack's Nervous Breakdown thread.  He loves fine European ornaments, and just posted a bunch about them.

In the church + home customs I grew up in, the Advent wreath had 3 purple candles, and a pink "Christ child candle" to be lit in the last week of Advent.

This pic may not be so funny for our Aussies and all living in hot climates. But for me it IS funny. It's from the webpage of a travel agency, promoting to celebrate Christmas in Australia.




In Puerto Rico is the same. Christmas at the beach! Last time I went I celebrated New Year at the beach. It was awsome!
