An Alpine Village

 Years ago The Blog Tech and I stumbled across this little jewel on one of our trips.  We were thrilled to stumble upon it again on our sugar shack outing.  This is a little artisan village built under beautiful towering pines.

 I'll have to check out what they do here for Xmas because we saw remnants of the creche. 

 It is truly a storybook setting.

Most places were closed but the pottery shop was open.  I would love to be turned loose in this place.  I love throwing pots though I'm not all that good at it.  I have been thinking about taking some more classes at some point.

 This is  a metal working cottage but it was closed.

 Click to enlarge and read the sign above the closed sign.  They were closed for a good reason!

 Thankfully, the wood workers cottage was open.  I am such a sucker for handmade wood items.  This board shows the types of exotic woods the wood worker uses.

 My DIL fell in love with this lazy susan so I bought it for her. It was made with all of the above woods.

 I loved everything.  Look at that bowl!

And this burl.  Omg, it is so beautiful.  The price tag is 2000.00!
I bought myself this very heavy duty pizza cutter.
