Creating a Happy, Colorful, Handmade Home & life on the shores of lake superior

December 16, 2010


"Sziasztok" means (roughly) "Hi" (but to many people, not just one person) in Hungarian. 
I was just checking out this blog and found these:

I was immediately smitten and started scrutinizing the picture, figuring out how to make them, when I read a bit more and realized they are from a marketplace in Hungary!  I must have some kind of Hungarian folk craft radar, being that my family is Hungarian (& Finnish).  I just wanted to share because they are soooo cute.


  1. So glad you like my adorable felt ornaments. I like to think of them as Mr. and Mrs. :-) I have them hanging in my kitchen so I can admire them as I bake Christmas goodies. Just thinking of their story and how far they traveled just to spend the holidays with me... it makes my heart smile.

    I think it is great what you are doing with your townhouse. We have made quite a few updates and changes to our townhouse over the past 5 years. I wish I had done a better job of documenting the process. You've done a great job!

  2. P.S. These ornament were given to me by a real sweetheart: Emily of Rue de France.

  3. Thanks for your kind words. I just looked at Emily's blog and she posted pictures of your ornaments! That's so cute. What an amazing idea--I hope it catches on.

  4. Hi Tanya!
    So happy to see you swooning over these ornaments. Your "Hungarian folk craft radar" (haha!) is spot-on. I got these two lovelies at a Saturday-morning market in Budapest. Here is the website on the card that the woman at the market gave me: Happy swooning!


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
