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.
Well, it has to be done! Web master Leslie has been after me for well over a year to upgrade the Miva shopping cart software. This seem like the perfect time. Christmas is over. Most of you are taking down your holiday trees. You probably aren’t thinking about shopping for ornaments!
In addition, I’ll be away for most of January and February. I’ll be attending Atlanta’s America’sMart for seven days (Jan 11 – 17). I’ll be previewing the 2012 collections for all of the major ornament designers and manufacturers.
Watch for blog updates, Facebook posts and Tweets during the big reveal!
Some of you know that I have a newly retired husband who detests Ohio’s winters. He didn’t have to twist my arm when he announced that he wanted to “go south” for the winter. Little did I know that his “south” would turn out to be on a beach in Progreso, Mexico.We have rented a house on the beach for a month (see the pool, the beach and the Gulf of Mexico in the photo aabove). I’ve paid for a month of internet service … but let’s see how “high speed” it turns out to be. I have plans to work on the web site update along with working on lots of the images from my week in Atlanta.As you can see, I will be working in heavenly surroundings. I wonder what it’s like to work on the laptop while resting in a hammock? Hmm …
Needless to say, the first 2012 issue of Celebrate365 will be somewhat delayed! Since the site is closed for shopping, you won’t be able to re-subscribe. But, no rush … remember, I won’t be home to deal with your order anyway. Relax … just like me!Watch for blog updates, Facebook posts and Tweets from Mexico, too.
