Guten Morgen Xangaland!


Today I thought I would share one of my new passions with you!


Polish pottery!


I have five small pieces and will be collecting in this pattern until I have all of it… (Hey I have three years right?)  They have a whole tea set, cream and sugar servers, a milk pitcher, a napkin holder, baking dishes, a roaster, salt and pepper shakers, cookie jars, mixing bowls…oh I could go on and on!  LOL  And before you ask… they are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe and all handmade and painted in Poland!


Here are the two cookie jars I have.

Here is my tea bag holder (the square one) and I don’t know what the other is yet but I’ll find a use.. no worries!  Oh and a wine that we bought just for the bottle!  It is a Mossul wine made right here in the Eifel and has a picture of the river right on the front…

And my very favorite, my butter dish.

Things have been going really well… Ryan is full blown into work and really enjoying it.  He is getting ready to start on his CDC’s and will soon be enrolling in college to finish off his two associates degrees. 


We are settling in nicely here and it’s already feeling a lot like home… although it’s freezing cold!  We are anxiously awaiting our household goods and our car all of which should be here by the end of the month…


The weather here is fabulous though chilly.  Our highest high in the last ten days was 70 degrees and it’s been raining off and on almost all week.  It’s getting down into the 40’s at night and it’s foggy every morning… pea soup fog, the kind you can taste!  We are really loving it! 


The only problem is that our house is in the mid 60’s all the windows are closed and we have no way of heating it up here at all.  (  I know I sound like a sissy but please keep in mind I’m from the desert! ) They don’t turn on the radiators until October 15th!!!  I’m going to be an icecicle by then!  So for now it’s coats inside the house double sock AND slippers and of course blankets!


Well until we meet again!


Auf Wiedersehen!

  5. We are visiting the other side of Germany right now (Berlin) just for the month though, not living here. I guess I will have to read further into your site to see why it is that you are living there! How is your German? Mine is virtually non exisitant, but my husband speaks it conversationally so we are getting by. Your picures are beautiful, makes me want to see more of Germany!
