{First Week of Advent 2012}

We already have started in our First Week of Advent for 2012... On Sunday morning the 1st candle got lit at Church and this brings us into the Advent mood; leading towards Christmas.
Traditionally the mood of Advent is expressed in the liturgical color of violet but I used red...
In its earliest form, beginning in France, Advent was a period of preparation for the Feast of the Epiphany. 
Fresh rosemary twigs emit a lovely fragrance...
Candle is French from Point A La Ligne.
Red rose ribbon is also French.
Vase is French, by Baccarat
Pineapple doily is hand crocheted by my sister-in-law Elly.

Wishing you all a meaningful First Week of Advent for 2012.

  3. Liebe Mariette,
    das hast du bildschön arrangiert. Für uns Rosenfreunde ist das wieder ein Augenschmaus. Die Kerze ist wunderschön gemacht und das Band mit Rosenmuster habe ich auch noch nie gesehen. Auch deine Schwägerin kann toll häkeln. Ich wünsche euch eine schöne Adventszeit. Du hast recht, Weihnachten kommt am Ende doch immer schneller und ist plötzlich da.
    Liebe Grüße, Johanna

  11. My dear friend I'm catching up on much overdue blog visits and post reading (been getting things ready for our 3 year old Godson -who is coming to stay with us for a week or two).

    How wonderful to be able to see the growth of your oak tree... year after year reaching to the sky. And your Rose suite kitchenette is perfect for visiting family and friends I especially love your detailed touches and that hand carved rose wreathe is breathe taking ... perfect details.

    Wishing you a wonderful first week of Advent... Hugs and love to you both C. (HHL)
