{Second Week of Advent 2014}

Time is slipping through our fingers during December... or is it just us?!
Wishing all readers from whatever country, a very warm and meaningful 2nd Advent Week!

      Oh, it does... can't even grab it by the tail!
      A special time for staying cozy at night when it is dreary looking outside without any sunshine.
      Sending you hugs and blessings for a cozy indoor Advent week (at least for the evenings when you safely return...)

  8. Hi Mariette,
    Time's definitely flying in full speed especially during this season. I'm cramming for Christmas decorations both at home and at work. So much in mind, too little time to execute.

    I like your title photo, are those white flowers jasmine? I love that jasmine is so fragrant.

    Happy second Advent week to you. Lovely pictures as always.

    Smiles,
    Mari

      Yes, we often lack the time for executing all our wishes and dreams... the many details will not allow us to fully manage.
      The photo in my header is taken in November of 2011 and these flowers are Gardenia jasminoides and they do emit a heavenly fragrance. This year we don't have any... only WISH!
      Enjoy your 2nd Advent and stay cozy and thanks for your kind words.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  11. lieve Mariette ,,,
    kom je al een beetje in de kerstsfeer ??
    wat een mooie kaarskandelaars ....
    en ik vond je vorige blog over sinterklaas ook intersant ..

    1. Lieve Nieneke,
      Ja, zo kom je inderdaad beetje bij beetje in de Kerstsfeer!
      Mooie kandelaars hè, uit Singapore, van Royal Selangor pewter en ze lijken net zilver. Heb er ook een vaasje van en gaf enkele cadeau aan o.a. mijn zus.
      Fijn dat je van de Sinterklaasgeschiedenis hebt genoten. Nederland bracht het naar de Nieuwe Wereld; iets waar we best trots op kunnen zijn.
      Liefs vanuit Georgia/USA,
      Mariette

      Thank you and how blessed you are for having seen the wonderful celebration from Delft via Flora's Skype video call! Oh, how much hot chocolate with whipped cream, dusted with cocoa, I have had... No longer whipped cream for health reasons but it was so good. Holding the mug with both hands made you warm inside and out! Flora will enjoy those things, fond memories...
      Happy 2nd Advent Week to you as well.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Kerstsfeer nou niet bepaald; gewoon heel beperkt gedurende de Advent en Kerst omdat we al tientallen jaren geen boom meer zetten. Toen we naar Pennsylvania moesten verhuizen, hebben we alles weggegeven... Gewoon puur en simpel!

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Wenn man schöne Kerzen hat, da braucht man gar nicht soviel dazu um eine Atmosphere zu schöpfen.
      Okay, auf deine Frage im alten Post von 2011. Ich bin nicht so gross, nur 1.67 M aber mit Grösse 34 sind meine Beine jedoch lang. Wenn es keine Escada Jeans geben würde, dann könnte ich nie Jeans tragen die lang genug sind... Also deswegen!
      Ganz liebe Grüsse und auch deinem lieben Mann und Mutti eine schöne Adventszeit noch.
      Mariette

    2. Danke, liebe Mariette. Ja, das ist wohl recht unterschiedlich. Ich bin auch nicht so groß. Bei dem einen sind die Beine länger, beim anderen der Rumpf, das ist ganz unterschiedlich. Escada-Jeans kenne ich gar nicht, habe noch nie welche gesehen. Gibt's sicherlich nur in ganz speziellen Geschäften, die ich noch nie betreten habe. Daher wußte ich nicht, was es damit Besonderes auf sich hat.

      Danke für die lieben Grüße und auch Dir und Deinem Mann noch schöne besinnliche Adventstage und nochmals alles Liebe

    3. Liebe Sara,
      Es ist jedoch Deutsch und auch in eure Outlet in Metzingen: Outletcity.com zu erhalten, genau wie hier in unsere Designer Outlets. Boutiquepreise sind viel zu hoch aber mit 60-70% Rabat macht es Spass.
      Im Jahre 1978 präsentierten Margaretha und Wolfgang Ley ihre erste Kollektion unter dem Namen 'Escada - Sportliche Eleganz'.
      Lese bitte hier die Geschichte da Margaretha Ley (Swedisch) Anfang der 1990er Jahre "als das größte Damenmodeunternehmen der Welt" galt! http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escada
      Wir wussten wo sie ihr Haus in der Eifel hatten, in den 80er Jahren... nah unseren Freunde.
      Es hat mich, seid den 80er Jahren immer gut gepasst und die Qualität ist TOP!
      Margaretha ist leider mit 56 Jahre gestorben.
      Es gehört jetzt Megha Mittal, Schwiegertochter des indischen Stahlmagnaten Lakshmi Mittal.
      Interessant zum lesen...
      Von allen Marken, Escada passt meinem Körper das allerbeste!
      Oh, die Problemfiguren hatte ich immer wo ich noch für Leute nähte... fast unmöglich aber dass mache ich schon lange nicht mehr, auch nicht für mich selber da ich nicht gegen diese Outlets konkurrieren kann.
      Liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette

  19. Dearest Mariette; How sweet to see the Angel clinging onto a candle♡♡♡ Great Christmas decorations, my friend. Time sure flies, Oh I'm going to be 60 next year and that really means becoming the elderly in Japan p:-)

    1. Dearest Orchid,
      We all have to cling on to life, just like this angel does with the candle... We cannot stop time, only trying to spend it wisely! Well, becoming 'the elderly' does not change much, it only means we have reached that privileged stage and there still is a lot more to come our way.
      Hugs and love from Georgia/USA, across the ocean.
