Sometimes, Ginnie, a gal's gotta tell a bloke a thing 5 times before he gets the message...
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Well, so I've heard, Ray. grin
I've been loving this series from the Christmas Market! You are doing such a beautiful job with your camera on these- what might be so ordinary looking- you make so wonderful!
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Elizabeth. Thank you. These are the treasures of the German Christmas market I love!

The 'mutsjes' are just a delight.

We had a great time at the Christmas market..
Ginnie Hart: I knew you'd like the hats/mutsjes. smile These are the treasures of the Christmas market for me, as you know. Bedankt.

Haha! The American and German birds might not have any communication problems, our birds talk or smalltalk or 'zwitschern/twitter even in the same way: Piep, piep, tschirp, tschirp, dschirk, quieetsch, kwieeep, quieeps, Zwieeetsch!

You remind me of my favourite fairy- tale by the Grimm Brothers "Jorinde and Joringel":
"It was a beautiful evening; the sun shone brightly between the trunks of the trees into the dark green of the forest, and the turtle-doves sang mournfully upon the young boughs of the birch-trees.
Jorinda wept now and then: she sat down in the sunshine and was sorrowful. Joringel was sorrowful too; they were as sad as if they were about to die. Then they looked around them, and were quite at a loss, for they did not know by which way they should go home. The sun was still half above the mountain and half set.
Joringel looked through the bushes, and saw the old walls of the castle close at hand. He was horror-stricken and filled with deadly fear. Jorinda was singing --
"My little bird, with the necklace red,
Sings sorrow, sorrow, sorrow,
He sings that the dove must soon be dead,
Sings sorrow, sor -- jug, jug, jug."
Joringel looked for Jorinda. She was changed into a nightingale, and sang, "jug, jug, jug." A screech-owl with glowing eyes flew three times round about her, and three times cried, "to-whoo, to-whoo, to-whoo!"
But in the German version the birds have another language "zicküth, zicküth......"
Ginnie Hart: Oh my, Philine. What a Grimm's fairytale! I haven't heard of that one. You sure know how to enlighten my day, don't you! Thank you. smile
Happy New Year for you and all your family Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fabrizio. The same to you and yours. Grazie.
LOL, funny looking ducks
Ginnie Hart: Birds can be made to look so wonderful, can't they, Chantal! smile

The whole fairy-tale: http://classiclit.about.com/library/bl-etexts/grimm/bl-grimm-jorinde.htm
Our mother had to tell us this fairy-tale again and again, because we loved it so much. (If I had had a daughter, I had called her Jorinde!)
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. This is wonderful, Philine. Thank you for this!

It's the same all over the world even in our house ;-)
Ginnie Hart: HA! The universal language we speak, Frida. smile Thanks.

Funny! How come the birds aren't talking about the bees?

Put some spice, make it hot! Ha ha...

How wonderful. Doncha wish you could bring all the things you see in the market?

Did you take 'em home?
Ginnie Hart: Our house would have looked like a flea market if we had purchased everything and brought it home, Maria. HAHA! Thanks for the smile.

super DOF, i like the old games! Have a nice nigth
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Oscar. Gracias.
Strange the small things you come across that are worth photographing Ginnie. a grand image indeed.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Les. Thank you.
Yes, I have days like that too... clear communication is not always easy... But what I am trying to tell you Ginnie is, have the very best new year. I look forward to many more wonderful visits in 2012!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it Doug!!! Thanks. smile
What a cute pair! Dressed for the cold. Would love to have them sitting & chirping on my snowy garden fence, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Beverly. They kinda steal your heart, don't they!
Very nice picture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Victoria.
What a cute pair Ginnie. Nice find. I've heard the German Christmas markets are quite something and how lucky for you to go there.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet, and yes. Not even the Dutch put on their Christmas markets like the Germans! It still surprises me. You'd think it'd rub off...but maybe the Dutch know there's no way they can compete?
cute!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Can't help but smile, Joshi, right? smile Thanks.
cute subjects. well composed image and amusing title to go with it. flawless processing as usual
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Ayush. Thank you kindly.

You bring such consciousness of what could be missed by people and put the beauty of it in a picture. Love it.
