Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{I WON THIS HIGH-END MERRY CHRISTMAS PILLOW!}


~From Miss Rebecca Nelson; at A Gathering Place, I won this High-End Pillow!!!~
Just click on her Link, here straight above my blog to get to know her too.
Make sure you get her link as well; it is to the left on her blog.
A little further down you can FOLLOW Miss Rebecca. 
If you have not done yet, you've missed out on quite a lot.
She is not only very talented but every bit a LADY and a fine Christian person through and through.
I'm mighty proud for having met her and will treasure her stories and wisdom for as long as I can.
Having soon her High-End Merry Christmas pillow is like a dream!
God bless you Miss Rebecca and I hope you had a lovely birthday weekend. 
May your Christmas be a warm one too...
Love, 
Mariette

  1. Lieve Mariette - what a wonderful & pretty pillow! Congratulations!!!
    And I want to thank you very much for your nice comment, too. There was just a little misunderstanding in relation to the photos of the "baking child": This was not my daughter (she is 17) - it's my "fosterling" Lukas, a 12 years old boy: He had leukemia and a stroke, and after this he was paralyzed. More than a year ago a person was searched, who wants to tinker and paint with him once a week "against God's reward". (Here you can read the "full story": http://rostrose.blogspot.com/2009/12/zwischen-den-jahren.html )
    Well, as you can see we became good friend in the meantime. And yes, you are right, he seems to be in his element when he is baking!
    I wish you wonderful Christmas days! Warm hugs from cold Austria, Traude

  4. Oh wow Mariette, was für ein wunderbarer Gewinn, da gratuliere ich auch ganz herzlich! Das Kissen ist wirklich wunderschön und so akkurat gestickt, einfach perfekt!
    Dir möchte ich auch lieben DAnk sagen für deinen KOmmentar bei mir, wei leid tut es mir um eure vertrockneten Orchideen! Da hat dein Mann extra eine Bewässerungsanlage gebaut, um solche Sachen zu verhindern und dann so ein Debakel!! Euren Ärger darüber kann ich sehr gut verstehen, ich zumindest wäre sehr ärgerlich gewesen!
    HAbt Ihr denn in der Zwischenzeit das Gewächshaus wieder mit neuen Pflanzen bestückt?
    Dir noch einen wunderbaren Wochenbeginn und ganz liebe Grüße aus dem verschneiten Deutschland
    wünscht Marlies

    Danke auch noch für Deine lieben Zeilen. Im Augenblick - so kurz vor Weihnachten - bin ich einmal viel unterwegs, dazu der viele Schnee, verbunden mit einiger Arbeit und deshalb wünsche ich Dir schon jetzt ein frohes Weihnachtsfest zusammen mit Deinem Mann, alles Liebe und Gute, bis wir uns wiederlesen, ganz herzlich
