Re:
Bayou's Avatar Oh, Camilla, you are so sweet! I have no blog... yet. I always was and still am afraid of the cyber net and don't like to expose myself or my life. But I do think about it, especially for my knot garden project. But time is also a big factor!
By the way, the picture is from Ashwood Nurseries close to Wolverhampton. Always surprised of all what you can get from a nursery in the UK Very Happy

Re:
Bayou's Avatar A Schwibbbogen (further to the new German writing reform with 3 "b" Laughing) is the arched thing down below: on top of the arch the candle holders and underneath the whole scenery, even little Jesus as a mini Steiff Teddybear -- really lovely!

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Bayou as Schwibbogen is a product-name you are still allowed to write it with two b's onlyVery Happy whereas the word Schifffahrtskauffrau (my learned profession ) comes with 5 f's in total nowShocked

Re:
Bayou's Avatar HA! Ivy, that's stunning! What does a Schifffahrtskauffrau do? Take a ship and sail to the UK and sell Steiff Schwibbbbbbbbögen??? Perhaps it's Schwippbogen? Rolling Eyes

Re:
Ivy's Avatar According to the producers in the Erzgebirge they are still written with 2 b's. and a Schifffahrtskauffrau is a (female) ship-broker the person who sells the space on board a ship (perhaps for the Container which holds those Schwibbögen and Steiff teddies)Very Happy

RE
Camilla's Avatar Thank you Bayou, would be lovely to see your Project on your Knot Garden, but can understand time is a factor, it will be worth waiting for how ever you decide Bayou.

I now know little teddie is a Princess, ooh, £500, pity, such a sweet bear, and I adore Bears.
