  4. Hello dearest Mariette!
    Wonderful dish and candles you a re showing, how beautiful!
    But my eyes are attracted mainly by the cicad, a plant I have much affection for since we had magnificent ones in our botanical garden in South Africa!
    Enjoy your sunday, Xmas is close now!!
    Hugs from France :)

      Thank you as usual for your meaningful and kind comment. Yes, we too love the cicad and we lost several that we kept in a planter box outside... They are so sensitive to any frost!
      South Africa is a suitable climate, we recall our visit and how we admired its flora.
      We had a lovely Sunday so far and yes, Christmas is coming close!
      Hugs and best wishes to you as well for Christmas and always.

  7. Very nice decorations, I recognize the iron rings as candleholder, my parents had the same in green and red. The candles always fit in with these.

    1. Dearest Marianne,
      Funny, that your Parents had them also in a different, more Christmassy color! Guess I got them also some place in The Netherlands and I opted for the brass ones, with gold candles. They indeed are a very clever invention with those fitting spirals.
      Hugs to you and enjoy your Christmas week.

      Ja, dass ist die Weihnachtsdecke worüber ich redete. Oh, ich mag Bad Münstereifel sehr gerne.
      Die Holzgeschnitzte Engelchen sind sehr lieb und ich bewundere die Leute in Süd Tyrol um so etwas machen zu können! Danke, es ist das einzige grüne am Geschirr was wir eben haben... kein rot vorhanden.

  27. Your carved cherubs are beautiful. I really like the simplicity of your Advent candles too. My Advent wreath of faux poinsettias has gotten covered with candle wax and the first candle has burned dangerously low to the foliage! I may adopt your simple "wreath" next year.
