5 on the 5th at the Christmas market

Joining Sandi’s  lovely meme again this month with a wander around the ‘European market’ (formerly the German market) set up for the festive season in Edinburgh.  I went just after it was open so that I could get some decent shots of the displays

I love all the funny hats that are still popular this winter


I could smell this stall before I came upon in and bought a string of cinnamon, lime and orange which is infusing my house with festive smells as I type


these decorations look so jolly all grouped together


these polymer clay covered bowls always fascinate me – in part with awe at the skill (polymer clay is one craft I’ve tried but found too frustrating to keep up)


and something I hadn’t seen before, these thin white ceramic bowls have patterns that show when a candle is lit underneath them


Thanks to Sandi for prompting me to visit the market with my camera as my focus.

What a lovely look around your market without the crowds!

Such lovely things you have brought to us today! Having wandered round several German markets I recognise some of these items with nostalgia ...

Ooooh such pretty things! I'm fascinated by the way that citrus is cut for the strings and wreaths. Is the peel just cut down to the pulp? I love how that looks!

Oh what neat things you found. I like the display in that 2nd photo and I bet your place is smelling wonderful with what you bought.

Oh my - I really want to go to that market! I think I could happily spend a lot of money there!

oooh! Lovely photos! Nothing like a Christmas market to make you feel all Christmassy is there?
