 We want to see
Something Shiny


Aunque por el momento mi sobrina Sandra y su novio Reiny tienen que terminar sus respectivas carreras, ellos tienen la ilusión de que después podrán casarse y formar su propia familia, la verdad es que estas dos almas estaban abocadas a encontrarse y entenderse:D.

Por eso voy preparando proyectos de vez en cuando y con tiempo, para ver que cosas les gustaría para ese momento, evidentemente todo pueden cambiar, pero por el momento voy a seguir con mi pequeño proyecto Sandra y Reiny y vamos a ir poniendo sobre la mesa ideas, que cuando llegue el acontecimiento sera una locura y tener algunas ideas claras, vendrá muy bien.

Espero que os guste, aunque...falta algo en este proyecto, que lo pondré la semana que viene...poco tiempo y muchas responsabilidades...como casi todas.

Now onto this week's challenge -
CANDY CANES






BREVE HISTORIA SOBRE EL CANDY CANE O BASTON DE AZUCAR

El bastón de caramelo fue inicialmente una sencilla decoración para árboles de Navidad. En 1670, el director del coro de la Catedral de Colonia blanco el bastón de caramelo sigue siendo puro hasta la década de 1920, cuando Bob McCormick confitero de Albany, Georgia, añadió el franjas rojas conocidas. Red-Peppermint Candy rayas por primera vez en la mitad del siglo 19 en la ciudad sueca de Granna, y McCormick puede haber sido inspirado por estos premios. Los bastones de caramelo rojo y el blanco fueron de mano torcida en un primer momento, y el proceso fue mecanizada en la década de 1950. Caramelos de Bob sigue siendo el fabricante más vendido de la caña dulce.

Hoy en día, los bastones de caramelo están disponibles en una gran cantidad de colores y sabores distintos de la tradicional rojo-y-menta blanca. Siguen siendo un favorito de vacaciones, pero son disfrutados por los cristianos y no cristianos durante todo el año.

CANDY CANE HISTORY

Around the seventeenth century, European-Christians began to adopt the use of Christmas trees as part of their Christmas celebrations. They made special decorations for their trees from foods like cookies and sugar-stick candy. The first historical reference to the familiar cane shape goes back to 1670, when the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral in Germany, bent the sugar-sticks into canes to represent a shepherd's staff. The all-white candy canes were given out to children during the long-winded nativity services.
The clergymen's custom of handing out candy canes during Christmas services spread throughout Europe and later to America. The canes were still white, but sometimes the candy-makers would add sugar-roses to decorate the canes further.
The first historical reference to the candy cane being in America goes back to 1847, when a German immigrant called August Imgard decorated the Christmas tree in his Wooster, Ohio home with candy canes.

The Stripes

About fifty years later the first red-and-white striped candy canes appeared. No one knows who exactly invented the stripes, but Christmas cards prior to the year 1900 showed only all-white candy canes. Christmas cards after 1900 showed illustrations of striped candy canes. Around the same time, candy-makers added peppermint and wintergreen flavors to their candy canes and those flavors then became the traditional favorites.
Feilz semana!!!

  8. Hi Loli I love your idea for your niece and her boyfriend - the textures are gorgeous and the shiny gold ribbon with the slide is beautiful. Those furry bears are adorable and they really look furry! The candy cane Christmas card is fabulous too and I like the way you've mounted it on the holly leaf background - but is the label supposed to say 'whis'? Have I missed something?! I love your info on the candy canes too. We are STILL having rain here - did you forget to send us some of your lovely sunshine?!! Vicky x

  20. Hey Paloma
    I understand your amazement and amusement in the commentary on my blog. I do not know English and I use Google Translator. This translator translates sometimes so bad that simple sentences often sound absurd.
    In what I wrote on your card, I expressed my appreciation for what you did and invited to yourself when you felt like it.
    :) :) :)
