  1. Oh! just love going to markets like these. There is always something unique hiding & waiting to be discovered. I think, I may have stayed with those buttons for awhile.

  5. Exactly how a Christmas market should be with local artisans selling their work. The chocolate work is especially impressive. I wouldn't have the heart to eat it. Who am I kidding... anything with chocolate is eaten in this house!

  6. Hello diane,
    Yes I am going to my brother's in the Alps for a few days, halting at a blogger's friend on the way back, but since I have never been a fan of Xmas, this one will be a pain.
    Much love, keep well, hugs to both of you

    1. Still good to have company though maybe. We don't celebrate when it is just the two of us. This year though we have to as back in the UK with FIL aged almost 95. Travel safely and take care Diane Hugs.x
