Beautiful Day




It was a gorgeous day today! Here are some daylight pictures of the Trier Christmas market which opened today. It’s the oldest city of Germany, rather small, but with a lovely medieval center and lots of other historic buildings. My mom enjoys helping out a friend at his gemstone stand. She’s the blonde lady trying to sell me a bracelet. Lots of commercial stands, food stands and down a small street there’s the artisan’s market. Took a pic of a stand with cool pottery and painting. As to my own art today, I’m working on some commissioned ornaments and finally started some ornies inspired by Maureen Blackman’s in the current Somerset Studio. Got 3 in the works which will be gifts. Oh, and carved a few new pattern stamps which of course I had to use right away! *** Heute war ein wunderschöner Tag! Hier sind ein paar Bilder vom heute eröffneten Trierer 3ornies.pngWeihnachtsmarkt. Meine Mutter hilft gerne am Stand eines Freundes aus, der ein Edelsteingeschäft hat. Sie ist die blonde Dame, die mir ein Armband verkaufen will. Es gibt viele kommerzielle Stände aber natürlich auch zu Futtern. Am anderen Ende einer kleinen Gasse gibt’s den Kunsthandwerkmarkt. Hab ein Bild von einem Stand mit coolen Töpfereien und Malerei gemacht. Meine art for every day sind Weihnachtsanhänger. Arbeite an einigen Bestellungen und hab endlich Ornamente angefangen, inspiriert von Maureen Blackman’s Artikel in der aktuellen Somerset Studio. Hab 3 angefangen die Geschenke werden. Eins ist die Inderin, die ich am Wochenende im Sketchbuch gemacht habe. Und hab gleich ein paar Stempel eingesetzt, die ich mir am Wochenende geschnitzt habe!

The perfect song for today is U2’s Beautiful Day * Der passende Song für heute ist U2’s Beautiful Day.

  9. Oh, wow, these photographs are making my day. Two of my best memories ever are of Christmas markets, one in Altenburg, Germany, and the other in Prague, where, while the snow fell lightly, I drank a glass of mulled wine that I still remember 12 years later. Wish we had something like that here.
