Weinachtszeit- Holzzeit / Christmast time- wood time


Hallo meine Lieben
ich bin wieder vollständig genesen, und freue mich nun auf Weihnachten.
Letztes Jahr hat mir mein Albert eine Drechselbank zum Geburtstag geschenkt, und ich finde, das Holzarbeiten ganz hervorragend zu Weihnachten passen.
Kennz ihr Tscheikowskys Nussknacker?
 Ich liebe den Mäusekönig und habe ihn auf einer Kuchenplatte verewigt.

Den Fuß habe ich aus einem Stück Buchenholz gedrechselt.
Dann habe ich mich an kleinere  Formen herangewagt.
So entstand der Pilz, der meinen Wichteln nun Gesellschaft leistet.
Und weil das so schön geklappt hat, habe ich eine Spieluhr gemacht.
Mit Hilfe einer alten Zigarrenkiste, einem Uhrwerk, das "Stille Nacht spielt, Schnee- Strukturpaste
und einiger gedrechselter Figuren. Die Spieldose ist ein echtes Gemeinschaftswerk, den Albert hat die Tannenbäume gemacht und ich das Mädchen und den Schneemann.
Weihnachten kann kommen.
Ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen 2. Advent.
Eure Janine
Hello my friends
Gladfully I am fully recoverd and now I am looking foreward to christmas
Last year Albert gave me a wood- turning- machine for birthday.
I think woodwork and christmas belong together.
Du you know Tchaikowskys Nutcracker?
 I love the King of Mice and painted him on a cake- stand.
I turned the base from a piece of beech- wood.
Then I tried some smaller figures.
Like the mushroom wich accompanies my two gnomes.
And because this went so good, I tried to make a musical box.
You require an old cigar- box, a clockwork playing "silent night", snow- structure-paste
and some little figures. The music- box is a real teamwork, cause Albert turned the trees and I the girl and snowman- figure.
Christmas can come
I wish you a wonderfull second Advent.
Yours Janine

  1. Janine!! So glad to read you're on the road to recovery...wonderful!! I love all your little wooden figures. When I was in Germany, I bought many little ornaments for my tree and now, you can really see them. I went from a large tree to a smaller one, making it easier to see my little ornaments. I used to have a German Nutcracker and Smoker, but alas, after 3 children and their attraction to them, they have gone the way of the past. LOL

    I also have a Christmas pyramid. I gave my children there's...wish I hadn't...my oldest son's is beautiful and I know he doesn't put it out. My daughter's was purchased back when Germany was still divided. I had some friends who traveled to East Germany a few times a year and they brought me back a really sweet one when my daughter was still a baby. When my youngest was born, I wrote my friend, Ute, to send me one for him, so that's the only one I still have from Germany.

    Have a wonderful week and would love to see more of your decorations...brings back so many wonderful memories....I love Germany!!

    xxoo,
    Georgina
