A Landsknecht Father Christmas

Have I ever told you about my obsession with wanting a Father Christmas/SantaΒ that is dressed like a 16th Century German Landsknect? No? Odd, it actually has come up repeatedly over the years in our house, so it has HARDLY been a secret! Don’t know what a Landsknect looks like? Here you go…… They are awesome…

Christmas Open House {part 3, the last rooms}

I hope everyone’s holidays were lovely, our’s were some of the best we’ve ever had! They were quiet and just the 4 of us, which is my absolute ideal! I haven’t forgotten (for a change) to post the last of the house, although the pictures are terrible (which I only realized after the fact) and…

Happy Christmas!
