Peaceful New Year

2008 has been a difficulty year for many people,
for different reasons: economy, health ....

tiny beauty stitches

My friend Monika embroidered this lovely stitchery for me:
isn't it lovely?
I'll going to find a cute frame for it soon


many more pretty gifts had been changed yesterday .........
First experience with a digital frame and a iPod speaker

I'm unwrapping here - with the "old" jewelry ...
No exercise need for wearing the NEW necklace ;-)

AND - the tree:



firstable: coffeetime with "Linzer Torte"



and doggies' Christmas gift presentation:


Today we are going to have goose, traditional food

wishing everybody a special time with their families

The day after

Yesterday we had a very quiet, pieceful afternoon and evening -
with a lot of candles, even on the tree
Many thanks at first to my SSCS Partner from Australia


Unfortunatly I don't know to whom I may sent my thanks, because there was no name on and in the package, just a mysterious card

I got a Xmas tablerunner with handembroidered wreath, a Austalian magazine and notecards
THANK YOU dear SSCS Partner - please contact me

Merry Christmas

Dear bloggers worldwide -
have some pieceful, silent moments

Here in Poland and in Germany, where I'm from we celebrate Xmas on the 24th
Our family tradition starts with coffee, cookies and cake - the whole room full of candles, even on the tree - real candles on a real tree ;-)
My DD traveled to us today and so we pick one present after the other, we look what the others got and how they react - that takes some time and we enjoy each minute of it.
After everybody is hopefully happy we eat:
potatosalad and pastasalad, both homemade
and sausages called "Frankfurter Würstchen" - that's it
Tomorrow a big goose will be in the oven for hours -
the day after tomorrow I have wild boar gulasz -
than days of left overs, for shure

However you celebrate this special day
best wishes from Szczecin
Brigitte

Pre-Christmas decoration

No Christmas decoration in the house, just one window ...
in my room.
Sorry, the orchids blossoms aren't natural
Love the little angel!
