{Our Camellia Nuccio's Gem & Christmas Angel Gift}

For Christmas we did have some perfectly white Camellia 'Nuccio's Gem' from our garden. Enough to fill a small vase. Often when it rains hard, they turn brown right away but this time they were perfect. Love to share them with you, as well as a beautiful Crocheted Christmas Angel Ornament that I received from dear blogger friend Olga, who has the blog Lacy Crochet as well as Olga's Home and Garden Blog. Just click on the two hyperlinks to visit Olga's great blogs.
  • Perfectly crocheted angel ornament by Olga from Lacy Crochet with golden ribbon loop for hanging.

  • Used my Christmas place mats with napkin that I've sewn a couple of years back.

  • Three Nuccio's Gem Camellias in a vase on the kitchen table.

  • The place mats are machine quilted and the borders are done in a decorative DMC metallic gold thread with the Serger.

  • The place mat reverses to different fabric with tiny holly leaves.

  • Detail of the decorative DMC metallic gold thread stitching.

If you need some Classes from Mariette, 'A Stitch in Time' just holler...

  10. Liebe Mariette,
    wie hast du wieder alles schön zusammengestellt. Der Häkelengel ist wirklich spitze. Über deine Kamellien kann man nur staunen und die Placemats und Servietten sind nobel. Und was ist mit dem tollen Serviettenring? Ist es indonesisches Silber (Djokja)?
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  14. What a sweet angel! Very pretty and such a sweet gift.

    Thank you for the visit dear friend..I was thinking , perhaps the reason we only celebrate Christmas for one day is because we are so impatient in this country!!! We should slow down and enjoy things a bit more..thanks for making me think!!

    Hugs and love,

    Dana

  15. There is no gift more precious than one that has been crafted by hand, as it is filled with care and love. Your flowers are gorgeous!! I wish our gardens could stay awake during our winter season... though we did have a green and mild Christmas,today the out property is covered a blanket of white. I think the Mr. G is planning on getting out the skidoo. xo HHL
