New Styles from Soffieria De Carlini

The Krampus Tradition …

St Nicholas and Krampus

If you are a child in southern Germany or Austria, when St.

Nicholas rides through your village on the evening of December 5, he does not arrive alone. Krampus is his scary companion.

The Krampus, a terrifying horned figure wearing chains and carrying switches, runs behind him. It’s his job to scare children into being “good.”

The Soffieria De Carlini Krampus ornament depicts a classic German orAustrian Krampus clad in black with a scary red face, horns and elongated tongue. And, don’t miss that tail. He is truly a frightening character … as bad as St. Nicholas is saintly!

Soffieria De Carlini has been a family-operated glass blowning working shop since 1947.  Located near Milan, the De Carlinis are the last workshop in Italy still producing these whimsical free blown holiday ornaments.

Thirty-five Oscar nominations and eight actual Academy Awards along with 1100 movies in her five-decade career … it’s not surprising that Edith Head became synonymous with Hollywood’s “Golden Age” of movies.  The iconic costume designer “dressed” dozens of actresses such as Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn.  Among Hollywood costume designers, Edith Head remains the queen!

The shelves are stocked and organized … the new ornaments have arrived. We are ready to roll ‘n roll for the holidays!

 

 

Climate controlled storage … but poor lighting for me! I often use a flashlight when finding ornaments to fill your order! But, the owners are so nice … they let me use their WiFi so I can adjust inventory errors as I go.  Let the shipping begin!

Greetings from Annaburg Germany

castle-lunchHaving a wonderful but tiring experience here on day 4. I have had difficulty connecting with the hotel WiFi here so I thought I would make a quick reminder to take a look at the Celebrate365.com De Carlini “Pre-Order” area. The final day that I can increase quantity numbers is Sept 30. Free shipping on pre-orders will end that day as well. So, if you usually buy Italian ornaments for gifts, you might want to take a look.

We are in the wood carving area of Germany and I am certainly seeing some wonderfully focused museums. I am gaining quite an education about “Miner and Angel” figures along with the parade uniform figures … well just about anything from this region. It has been wonderful! We will be checking out of this hotel tomorrow and moving onward to the glass blowing / ornament area. Of course, that is what I am most looking forward to. And Glass Links member Jane Feuer who is here in Germany for 6 months will be joining the groups soon. We will be going to Inge-glas on Friday … along with lots of little glass workshops. You know that I will have lots of photos to share!

I will be back on Sept 30 / Oct 1.
