German Christmas Market to start the Holidays

Alpaca Scarves
Sparkling Hills Resort - Vernon, BC
Room with a view...

Yesterday was officially a German Fest type of day... and I am not even German! It started off with a yummy lunch given by one of our suppliers at work. I had the Schnitzel with a delicious mushroom sauce, spaetzel and the sweeter purple cabbage. And in the evening we enjoyed a last minute visit from my sister and decided to head over to the Christmas Market. It features typical German favorites such as the wooden toys/ornaments, filled baked apples, and . Something that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful Alpaca scarve (and blanket) that was oh so soft and had a nice sheen. For $40-60 apiece, I think it was a very competitive price for something handmade and straight from the source.

There was also a booth set up for this new resort that was built in Vernon by the owner of Swarovski (he actually lives in Austria though) called Sparkling Hills. Apparently there is over $10,000,000 worth of the crystals in the decor and based on the pictures it looks absolutely amazing. Mark and I wanted to go last year for New Year's as there were some great packages because it was so new. The girl at the booth shared with us some of this years packages and we might go for the two night and consider it our Christmas gift to each other. It would be soooo relaxing as it boasts seven sauna's and steam rooms of all different temperatures and has a 'Kneipp' water walkway canal. The rooms have floor to ceiling windows overlooking a lake with a soaker tub against the window...I can only imagine how relaxing it would be. Especially after how busy we have been with work and our 'after work-work' of our 'Alphabet Letter Photography' frame business. We will see if I can convince 'zee husband'
