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/2018/03/1978-pjc-vedders-modern-mushroom.html

{Let It Be A Happy New Year}

Indeed; Let It Be A Happy New Year for 2013! Above all in good HEALTH and may we all be SAFE. We all lost loved ones and also lived through happy moments and now the memories remain as we move on. For the end of the year we both wanted to toast with an Italian Roscato Rosso Dolce that we got at World Market Cost Plus. So let us toast to all of you and thank you for your loyalty throughout the year...
Just poured this delicious Roscato into our French Baccarat crystal champagnes. 
Our Camellias are blooming very pretty right now.
Winter Rose is an appropriate name for them!
The red box with Mon Cheri chocolates from our German 'son' and family SURVIVED 2012 but they will be short lived in 2013... They are pure bliss, together with a coffee.
On a sunny day it looks really nice outside...
This is our Camellia Japonica Debutante.
Showing you the detailed hand crocheted lace that my friend Ellie gave me in 2010.
An elderly lady in Sevenum, The Netherlands made them...
Cheers from our Gazebo, in  the sunshine. We did go for a walk in the afternoon, wearing my hair calf Escada skirt and moccasin boots.
Together with Tiggy-Tiger our little feline girl...
Wishing you all a Safe, Healthy and Happy 2013!

  1. Dear Mariette,

    You have shared a lovely message and photos. Nice that you are toasting in the new year with a glass of Roscato. I love the sweet photo of you and Tiggy Tiger, you look so great together with your matching attire.

  3. Oh your table setting is beautiful!! I've never tried Roscato but I should! I love World Market - in fact, just went there today to get champaign. Instead I got sparkling wine, but I guess it's similar :-)
    Thank you for your comment in my blog. Goro is doing well and his skin looks good. Though, he is allergic to pollen, so I have to watch out in spring.
    Thank you so much for being a wonderful friend. I wish you and your family a very happy, healthy new year!!
