{First Advent Week 2014}

Already Advent Season for 2014... 
Can't believe it but it is TRUE. 
Wishing you all a Meaningful First Advent Week.
Just using a red Point A la Ligne candle from France with fresh Rosemary sprigs from the garden.
Rosemary emits such a lovely fragrance!
The beautiful pineapple doily was hand crocheted by my sister-in-law +Elly VandenMunckhof, she is a loyal reader of this blog.
The red rose ribbon is French too.
And so is the Baccarat vase...

For such a Perfect French Baccarat Crystal Candle Holder with etched mark including the fragrant red candle, you can have a look on my online Boutique. Just click the above link.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Dat blijkt zeker te kloppen. Onze baas in México, een ex race car driver, zei altijd dat naarmate je de finish nadert, het steeds sneller gaat. Hij sprak uit ervaring maar het is nog waar ook!
      Een stemmige tijd wensen we ook jullie beiden.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  7. Ja,Mariette de tijd gaat snel en soms hebben we amper de tijd om op adem te komen......
    ik schrijf volgens jou mijn blogpost zelfs in één adem.
    Ik tref het wel eens dat ik blogberichten in één adem lees zo boeiend,interessant of leuk geschreven.

    Morgen alweer de eerste Adventzondag.
    Hier branden de lichtjes elke dag niet in kristal maar in doodgewone oude Franse confituurpotten die ik lang geleden in Frankrijk kocht of in terracotta oude Belgische bloempottekes,past ook veel beter bij mijn landelijke,antieke en knusse interieur.


    Denk dat ik zo dadelijk ook maar eens wat verse rozemarijn van de plant ga knippen voor in mijn home made gehaktbrood in de oven.

    Fijn weekeind en lieve groet!!
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Hopelijk heb je toch nog wat tijd gevonden om bij te komen van de pijn in je heup! De tijd raast inderdaad ontzettend door.
      Maar ik schreef nergens dat jij je blog in één adem schrijft maar: 'Nou zeg, dat was heel wat bij elkaar genoemd in één adem!' opgeknapte keukentje
      Inderdaad staat de Adventstijd alweer voor de deur!
      Wij gebruiken ook geen kristallen kaarsenhouders, die zijn enkel voor de verkoop in mijn Boutique.
      Geniet van jullie weekend en liefs,
      Mariette

    Your advent candle with rosemary is an elegant display.
    I actually got my Advent Calendar in time for December 1. Speaking of which, I was wondering what happened to October and here we are starting December. What happened?
    Enjoy your week end......*s*

      It sure speaks of a very cozy time of the year, spent together with family and for the northern hemisphere, very much indoors. Focusing inwards in both ways.

      Rosemary is also lovely with potato wedges in the oven and I bet with rice it will have the same effect.
      Thank you for your compliments, that candle I want to preserve as it is so beautiful and no longer available... My sister-in-law is very talented in creating such lovely doilies.
