Day 49 of 365

Lurking behind Michael Buble yesterday was this little fella. He's a smoking man and I bought him 16 years ago when John and I went to Munich for the weekend when we lived in Germany.
His top half comes off and there is a space for little cones of incense to sit. Once lit, the top goes back on and smoke comes out of his mouth and he looks like he's smoking.
He came from the Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas shop in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is a fabulous shop where it's Christmas all year round. The village is walled and has some amazing houses. When we were there there was a huge music festival on. It was a shame that as we were on a coach tour we only had so long to spend there. Definitely a place to re-visit. Maybe once the grumpy teenager has left the building!!!


  1. Oooooh he's lovely, I love the little German ornamenty things.Reminds me of going to the Christmas market last year - loved it.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful place to visit and shop....love this smoking man as well.....:-) Hugs

  3. He has such character in his face.

  4. Hi Liz Sweetie...
    What a beautiful treasure that you have. I bet he looks precious when he has incense in him and has some smoke coming out.

    What a wonderful place to go and visit. I could shop there for hours I am sure.

    Thank you for sharing sweetie. I pray you all are well. Country hugs and much love...Sherry
