Welcome to Boxwood Cottage!

So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

Hi Cindy thank you and welcome to my blog!I've been trying to find some English links to the "Erzgebirgische Volkskunst" websites, but they are all only in German language.

Mrs. Staggs and Sandy thank you, I've just answered on your comments on the other post!

Carol, thanks for the welcome! I was looking on ebay and found a couple of them that I'm watching. I showed hubby and he said looks like we'll have to go to Germany! lol

He was stationed there while in the Army and would love to visit again. Maybe one of these days.

Cindy do you know this site?

http://www.germanchristmasgifts.com

They sell all the beautiful flower children from "Wendt and Kühn" in Seiffen which I find is the best Company from the Erzgebirge and the prices are quite similar as well. Or even better you go directly to the Wendt & Kühn website which is http://www.wendt-kuehn.de/
They have a US version there too and gorgeous new stuff. Just look at the girl with the egg aww

Oh Carol, I love how you have made little worlds for your flower-children! I have a collection too, and have been wondering how to display them this season, I think I may have to take inspiration from you now!!! Truly delightful!!! (they are still popular here in the states too, we carry quite a few of them at the Castle.)

Carol, thanks for the 2 sites! I hadn't seen them before. I am having a great time at the W & K one! They have lots of good things there. Thanks again!

Carol said...

You're very welcome Cindy I'm glad if I could be of help for you!

After what Ulla wrote in the comment before yours, you can also get some at the fabulous "Castel in the Air" shop in Berkeley California :D

Ulla I'm proud if I can still inspire you!
