Christmas At Our House, Part 4, The Angel Orchestra

December 03, 2012

 I adore this Wendth and Kuhn Angel Orchestra
with tiered stand, fence, trees and snow.
 I love these little guys!

The picket fence is a flea market find.

Notice the pigtails!

Wendt and Kuhn, the German company responsible for making these painted wood darlings
are perhaps best know for their angel orchestra.  I'm sure they've made 100 different orchestra
members over the years and are highly collectable.
They are instantly recognizable by their green spotted angel wings.

The Wendt and Kuhn website is enchanting.

The family room mantel holds our needlepoint stockings made by me
a long ago time, before I completely got addicted to knitting.
 You can see the post about them here.

Next time, the tree and the San Francisco Village.

  3. Kristen, I am happy you are sharing all of your beautiful decorations as your home looks beautiful and your so good about keeping everything. I hope the decorations on your tree show up as I remember giving you and Sammy a Christopher Radko ornament every Thanksgiving and now that I don't have a tree that I put up you now have the ones that I had left. I love them and your tree is so beautiful.

  4. I forgot to mention the Stocking that you made. They are beautiful and fun to fill.....
