{ALERT Blogger did spot my MISTAKE: SORRY!}

Oops, it happened and for quite a while, I let this BIG MISTAKE go unnoticed. Till my post from yesterday where one of my favorite and ALERT bloggers did spot it! SORRY!!!
On February 14, yes on Valentine's Day, I did post about my AMAZING Chocolate Recipe, see link below post. I'd made photos with the lovely gift we received in December (YES, my MISTAKE went unnoticed for THAT LONG!!!) from our Liz. She is fond of red beets, as I am myself. Not so her Dad; my husband Pieter... She bought me this precious high end linen and silk table runner - with beets on. Both of us were so pleased with this special gift and laughed about the fact that the beets won 2:1 and it never crossed our mind we were MISTAKEN.  Even the sales person who sold it had no clue... Dear blogger Ger from the blog: Hoorn Des Overvloeds did comment about the POMEGRANATE image on the silk runner! She went to the previous post for finding the recipe of the AMAZING Chocolate. 
My husband laughed too; how could we both have overlooked this?! How stupid can one be? Do you have things like this happening to you too, or is it only me... I hope I'm not a stand-alone-case!
Do you laugh at me now?...
I deserve it!
Oh my!
Yes, we are growing our own Pomegranate in our garden!
For the time being we have to buy the dark chocolate covered Pomegranate seeds from Costco, to enjoy with our coffee. They seem to be cholesterol lowering, even preventing Alzheimer's and so many more health benefits they possess. 
A heartfelt SORRY for this MISTAKE!

  1. I am all for lowering my cholesterol naturally, no statins! And Alzheimer's disease has to be one of the most cruel of all ... bring on the pomegranates.

    I can't believe you remembered (or knew) my birthday is tomorrow ... thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wishes!!!

  2. Hi Mariette,
    I do not remember this post so I can not comment or even think of laughing at you for this. Life happens and we all see things in our own way. It sure is a gorgeous piece of sewn artwork.
    Love that you are growing your own Pomegranates. They look gorgeous in the pic.
    Hope you have a wonderful week my friend. Thank you for stopping by and your sweet words. Always great to see you.
    Much Love, Celestina Marie

    1. Dearest Celestina Marie,
      The link to that particular post is at the bottom and you did reply to it too... But it is funny enough; nothing serious.
      Hugs to you,

  3. Dear Mariette,

    Easy enough to make a mistake like that, and yes, often do things like that myself.
    How wonderful that you are growing your own pomegranate tree, hope it does well and bears a lot of fruit for you.
    So kind of you to remember Marcel's birthday too, thank you so much.

    Happy day

  4. I love pomegranates! I sprinkle them into my salds. Yum!
    xo Catherine

  5. I barely know the difference between a radish and an eggplant! :) You are sooo funny!

    Love, Rebecca

  6. How funny...Dearest Mariette,
    you made me laugh this morning ...thank you :O)
    Love the tablerunner with the pomgranates design!
    And it's great that you grow a plant in your garden!
    I love those as well, in salad ode muesli.....
    Delicious and healthy!
    Love and hugs,

  7. Liebe Mariette,


    Álles Liebe


  8. We all make mistakes and it's just charming with your little mistakes. Nice apples *smile*.


  9. Hoi lieve Mariette,

    Geen sorry....het was enkel mijn bedoeling om jou op deze menselijke vergissing attent te maken,kan het ook niet helpen dat ik niet als een sneltrein door al de blogposten vlieg maar ze altijd met veel aandacht en interesse lees...
    tja.....dan kom je tot zulke ontdekkingen, maar gelukkig konden jij en Pieter er hartelijk om lachen ☺.
    En of het rode bieten zijn of granaatappels.....het is en blijft een fraaie tafelloper en prachtig kado, en beiden zijn lekker en gezond.

    Al vraag ik me af of het eten van granaatappel in alle gevallen een te hoog cholesterol kan voorkomen,soms maakt het eigen lichaam ook een teveel aan schadelijke vetten aan die hart en vaatziekten kunnen veroorzaken.
    Wij ervaarden dat bij manlief zo'n 8 jaar geleden terwijl zijn cholesterol nog nooit te hoog was geweest ontdekten de artsen per toeval dat zijn kransslagader voor 90% verstopt zat en hij met tijdbom rondliep,altijd hard aan het werk en geen enkele klacht of waarschuwing van lichaam dat er iets mis was.
    Hartoperatie volgden snel met 4 omleidingen.
    En die sterke en normaal toch gezonde kerel van mij was 5 dagen na operatie weer thuis waar periode van herstel kon beginnen.
    Na half jaar keerden hij weer volledig terug in het werkproces.

    Maar 5 jaar later na grote hartoperatie was het toch weer nodig om in de toen vernieuwde aders ,die gebruikt werden uit arm, om dotterbehandeling te ondergaan en stent te plaatsen omdat de ader wéér dichtgeslipt was.
    Natuurlijk blijft hij onder controle en zijn behandelend cardioloog behoord door haar kennis bij de top 5 van Nederlandse cardiologen, dus hij is in goede handen.

    Fijne dag en lieve groeten!!!


  10. Lieve Mariette,
    ik m oest wel even lachen hoor toen ik je post las .....Maar het blijft een prachtige tafelloper en een kostbaar geschenk die jullie kregen van Liz.Wat leuk dat jullie een eigen graanaatappelboom hebben in de tuin.
    Ik koop vaak een pak geperste sap van de granaatappel om zijn vitamine c en het verkleint de kans op ziektes en ik vind het natuurlijk ook een heerlijke drankje.
    Maar hij staat ook symbool voor de liefde is mij geleerd en dat is toch ook nog een mooie bijkomstigheid.Lieve mariette ik wens je vanuit een koude en regenachtige Nederland vele warme groetje......Het is vandaag prinsjesdag en ik ga nu naar de troonrede luisteren van onze Koningin.Liefs...Elly.

  11. Hi Mariette these things happen with me quite often. You are not alone :-)
    I love the table runner with pomegranate. Though I've never liked the taste of it. I've had pomegranate juice and tried wine, but didn't like... But I may like it if I eat the fruit itself. Like cherry, I don't like cherry flavored drink but love cherry itself.
    It's so cool you have pomegranate growing in your garden!

  12. Hay dear Mariette, how are you? Sorry for my rare visits, but my computers had a defect. I am in Serbia now. I like you superfood, green tea, but cokies my favourits!

    Greetings, big greetings from Serbia, and we are waiting for your visit!

  13. Liebe Mariette,
    es liegt immer im Auge des Betrachters, was er sieht. Die Farbe der Frucht auf dem Tischläufer spricht jedenfalls sehr für Rote Beete. Ansonsten sieht es mehr nach Granatapfel aus. Auf jeden Fall war es ein tolles Rezept.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  14. Liebe Mariette, ich sehe das so wie Johanna, es kommt immer darauf an, was man zu sehen GLAUBT - und ich finde, man kann durchaus die beiden Früchte verwechseln. AUf jeden Fall ist das Tuch sehr schön!!!
    Allerliebste Rostrosengrüße, Traude

  15. My dear friend Mariette,
    We all make mistakes, it has happened to me and you helped me to correct it, remember? We understand. I already have the chocolate recipe, thank so much for sharing, since my husband has Diabetes type 2 and he loves chocolate, he will be very happy to know he will be able to eat it, I can't wait to try the recipe. We already tried the tea and we love it. Thank you so much for your tips.
    Hugs to you with lots of love

  16. Hello Darl,

    We are human made mistake... take it easy...
    I planted as well pomegranate in our new garden. Love those fruits much


  17. How wonderful to be able to plant and grow your own pomegranate tree!!! The weather here I am certain would not allow it. It is a beautiful piece of linen from your daughter ... I love that the image on it can easily be interpreted as a few different fruits... Human we are.. Blessings to you both..HUgs, C. HHL


Thanks for your visit and comment.
