This time I thought that I would show some craft that I did not make but certainly love
Last year, whilst in Germany, we fell in love with the German Candle Arches or "Schwibbogens" that we saw in all the markets. The best ones were the original ones from Erzgebirge but they were rather expensive and we ended up with a small one from a market that was not from Erzgebirge.
We had told our friends in Germany that we had bought a smaller and cheaper one this summer and then found that in our Christmas Hamper this year that they had included an original Erzgebirge Schwiboggen and this was not small - it is 25.5 inches long.
Needless to say that this has pride of place in our window and looks lovely especially when lit at night.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year and wish good health and happiness to you and your families.
