This stunning photo of Switzerland! no idea who took it, but they are talented at captures!
I'm going to attempt to make some Lebkuchenherzen's! I was lucky enough to see them all on display in their finery at a Christmas fair in Germany a few years ago, the air was thick with their delightful smell and their beautiful colours.
Speaking of beautiful colours, Peau d'Ane, or Donkey Skin in English. The beautiful film version of the fairytale, starring the beautiful Catherine Deneuve, the costumes and scenery are out of this world.
