Christmas time is the highlight for most of our ladies, to decorate the house. This year Doris found a Baumkrown (tree crow) and she said, it's for the cherry tree - but first, she made some other stuff out of it.

 

And now she is looking for electric candles and I'm the cable guy, to bring the power to the crown - next year...

 

Edit: sorry, forgot the pics. The best is, it's old and rusty! If you have the same problems at home, guys, please tell it here.

Do you have any photos, I think you are talking about a tree topper. Electric candles, the fake candles with a light bulb in the top?

No Brian, this is very special - show it your wife and I think, or better I swear, she want it, too.

Wolfgang, is there a German tradition behind that crown?  What was its purpose?

 

Its something we don't see over here, at least in my neck of the woods.

Wolfgang, I will not be showing my wife that as I will have to build one or have you find one and ship it me. :( :poke:

 

Thanks for sharing, it is a neat deal and I see why your wife likes it. :thumbs:

No, Ben, it's not traditional. My wife found this stuff and we made something out of it. But next year it will be our outdoor Advent wreath - and therefore we need eletric power on the eaves purlin of our house. But I have eleven months to do my work... :smilewink:

That is a very nice and unusual deceration.

It looks like a Christmass wind chime to me.

An excellent job in creating it..

My wife would want one of those as well. We even have the porch to hand it in.
