Friday Five and Christmas market

Good morning,
it's time again for Friday's Five,sharing with Amy and Tanya 


At home it's going on in small steps: my working desk is back (what have missed it!) 
and a little Christmas decoration. 
The rest of the room is still mess and boxes...


It's the time of grey and white, fog and lack of colors.
But I like this time too.
It's the time of living from the colors, collected in the soul throughout the year 
and the time of candlelight.


The cat is well and enjoys every day without snow,
 strolling around through the gardens.


I've just finished reading "Altar of Bones" by Philip Carter.
That's not my kind of books, only a random find at the public bookshelf 
and really trash... but very exciting.


At last some photos of our little Christmas market, 
made on wednesday afternoon.


  1. Beautiful photos from the Christmas market

  2. Everything looks wonderful, just like a fairytale. Absolutely beautiful.

  3. Germany is the country I’d like to travel at this time of year as I’m attracted by the ambience of German Christmas markets. My last tour to Germany was late October, which was really nice. I like the lighting and ornaments by the window and the cat at the window is a picture-perfect image.


  4. The market looks wonderful. We are going to Birmingham on Wednesday and tey have a huge German-style market there every Christmas. I'm really looking forward to it.

  5. Mascha, what wonderful Christmas scenes, the views from you home, your lovely decorations, the colorful lights of the Christmas market. Enjoy this special time of year...Merry Christmas.

  6. I love Christmas markets ... so much fun to walk and look and people watch ... espcially the children. Candle light is beautiful ... love the little houses on your desk. Merry Merry!

  7. Beautiful photos. Love the ones of the Christmas market. Seeing that would certainly get me in the Christmas spirit!

    Happy Five on Friday

  8. It was a real delight to see all the beautiful photos of the Market, I felt as if I was strolling along with you bringing back some glorious memories of our time there. A lovely post.

  9. Your photos are so very beautiful! The village is magical too. I feel like a snow is just waiting to fall on the village square to make it a perfect Christmas village.

  10. Thanks for sharing photos of the lovely light, and candlelight around you, as well as the colorful Christmas market. Delightful!

  11. Bei dir würde ich mich aber auch wohlfühlen.
    Sehr gemütlich und ansprechend sieht es bei dir daheim aus !
    Und der Weihnachtsmarkt im Städtchen sieht wenigstens auch wie ein Weihnachtsmarkt aus.
    Das liegt wohl auch an den vielen Fachwerkhäusern, sehr idyllisch .
    Ganz liebe Grüße

  12. The Christmas market looks wonderful. What I miss most about living in Europe is all the markets at Christmas.

  13. Christmas markets in Germany are famous worldwide. There's one that comes to Vancouver from Germany, even the workers in the stalls come over. It's fun to wander and see all the beautiful crafts, and to sip Gluhwein!

  14. Lovely photos.
    I like the photos from your home.

    Have a nice sunday !

  15. I love the little houses on your desk. I am envious of your Christmas market. I would love to have gone to that one!

  16. MARVELOUS photos .
    i enjoyed your house beauties and wonderful Christmas market

  17. I hope you are enjoying your Christmas preparations. You live in a very pretty town that looks Christmassy all year round I should imagine. Happy Christmas!

  18. Great pictures. When I saw that first picture of your market, at first glance I thought it was an advent calendar! It's gorgeous. I want to go to a Christmas market! Looks like so much fun. Thanks for sharing.


  19. I love Christmas, Mascha, and I love your photos!!! Thank you so much for sharing! Merry Christmas to you. :)

  20. What a darling village you live in! We will be living in Wiesbaden. I should look it up right now and see how their Christmas market it. We plan on going to the frankfurt one next year and the one in Nurenburg. So excited! Just bought a new coat so I won't be so cold.
