O Tannenbaum!

with 2 comments

“O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
(Your dress wants to teach me something:)
Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
(Your hope and durability)
Gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit
(Provide comfort and strength at any time)
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Das soll dein Kleid mich lehren
(That’s what your dress does teach me)” Ernst Anschütz, 1824

Christmas Trees became popular in Britain around 1848 when the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the Royal Family celebrating around a decorated fir tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert’s childhood in Germany. Soon every home had a tree decorated with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts.

Our elegant virtual fir tree is by Botanical and you’ll find three versions of it at Tannenbaum Event in the Tree Section. All the beautiful ornaments are from two current sets by Fancy Decor. You’ll need a steady hand and some quiet time out to decorate a similar tree, it’s useful to stand back frequently and check that the overall effect is balanced. Everything is modify so if you want a larger tree like I did in this scene, it’s easy to upsize the ornaments.

On the street you live

with 13 comments

 

“I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high.
Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live!”  By the great Nat King Cole

*~*~*

The above is one of my favourite songs that somehow I associate with Christmas for no other reason than my mum had a Nat King Cole compilation album that she used to break out over the holidays and this was one of the songs on it.

UnKindness’s latest release of a beautiful country cottage with large glass windows and door plus snowy roof gave me inspiration for the rest of the scene above.  Click on the picture for a larger version.
