Ups ... sorry Amy ...for the "Strawberry" I am too late ...

so my second choice is:

a "Bee" (as large as the Butterflies are).

Well, if I have to pick just two, I think I'll go for the Helter Skelter (because this also fits in with the striped Circus Tent) and the Knicker Bocker Glory.
I hope some EL people are checking out this site. They won't have to do market research for years!!

Hello Everyone,
How about an airplane with enamel and rhinestones, they did produce a boat and I think it's for the airplane.

Now, as there outside already all noticed, my English is not very good. Sorry!
I could not find out what for a bird you selected Maeuschen. Also with the knickerbocker glory I'm helpless.
Perhaps someone can write me how it's called in German - that would be very dear.

Don't worry Liliane, I have no idea what a Kicker Bocker Glory or a Helter Skelter is either - and I lived in the U.K. for 2 years. Like you I thought a sled would be nice (I suggested it under 'If you could design a solid) mine would be pulled with a team of huskies - it would go well with the snow theme. I also suggested a Samoyed which is a beautiful snow dog. He could be in white enamel with a black nose & jewelled eyes & collar. As I own a real one I would certainly buy the solid. Karen

Wow - you probably have another name for a knicker-bocker glory. It's a dessert in kind of like a milkshake glass (back to that one again!) and it's filled with different flavours of icecream, maybe a bit of fruit, cream and those thick, sticky dessert sauces! [Razz]
As for the Helter Skelter it is like a tall tower in the middle with stairs in it and then round the outside is a slide that coils round it to the bottom. [Big Grin] ah back to my youth when we would go to the seaside and pay for so many rides, you used to take a mat a bit like a door mat with you and slide down on it!
[Big Grin]
I like the sound of both of those - bring back fond memories! [Wink]

So a "knicker-bocker glory" is like an ice cream sundae then? I still don't have a suitable Americanism for the Helter Skelter though.

Jacky, What a hoot - I hadn't noticed I'd left out the 'n' but it's very hot here - 40 degrees to-day with 42 expected to-morrow so there's every possibility my brain has 'frizzled' up [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

Fee - thanks for the explanation. Karen

Cordial thanks Fee!!!

I understood it now - I god it [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

You know all, that we learn much from this club. I learn here not only much over solids, I learn also still English. By the way "knicker bocker" written in the German way: "Knickerbocker" are Trousers (seven eighths long), which are carried with us into the mountains (for migrations, mountain pastes).

Great day, Liliane

I would like 1.a replica of a perfume bottle (to go with Lisas' lipstick) and 2. a cluster of purple grapes to go with the fruit theme.
My list could be endless, there are soooo many possibilities. [Roll Eyes]

Glad I could shed some light on the sweet-er side of life! [Big Grin]
Nancy - you might want to check that my recipe is the same as yours and that I'm not leading everyone astray! [Suspicious] hee hee!
Liliane - No problem with your English - I never really thought twice about these terms until it was mentioned on the board but my husband, who is Australian, didn't have a clue about them either! I presume they must be 'British'terms!. I associate 'Knicker-bockers' with either the 'glory' or long pantalooned underwear from yesteryear! lol [Big Grin]

Karen, Fee, Jack and Maeuschen

You all are so good and kind [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

To her in addition also still the expressions explained, for which I had not even asked and did not understand, is realy super [Smile] Since you are not an encyclopedia, I had inhibitions to ask still more / everything.

Again, best thanks to you all! Liliane
