Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a bit of an Ebay junkie.  I try not to order too much stuff online, but sometimes I just can't help myself.  I mostly try to restrict my Ebay buying to practical things, but sometimes I buy things just for fun.  Today I received a "Luftpost" or Airmail package from Germany.  What was inside?

Inside was an original Ostheimer Berner Sennhund.   The Ostheimer company has been making hand carved and hand painted children's toys for over 40 years. I know it is not very practical, but, isn't he cute!

I think I am going to start buying more things from Germany.  It took less than 2 weeks for the parcel to arrive here.  I have waited longer for items that I have ordered from Canada.

  1. I think that wooden toy was en excellent investment! When Aimee (my wife) saw it, she wanted to order an entire fleet of them :P

    But seriously, it's hard to find nice berner-related things... so you've whet our whistles!
