Out comes of course our favorite wreath with Silver Christmas Balls and Angel...
LOVE the Silver Angel especially!
Love this quote:
'If we do not live, speak and think in the language of enchantment, including naming angels and recognizing spirits... then the soul will go out of our lives and communities, and we will wonder why nothing seems to hold together and nothing seems to have value anymore. ~Thomas Moore'
This is where I got the idea... from the hardcover book of Argenterie Giovanni Raspini, Florence/Italy.
Those wooden shutters remind me of my childhood as we used to have them like that!
Used to sell those silver Christmas Balls but they're all gone—only these silver gifts remain→click link: Spectrenoir.
Oh and certainly candles belong to Christmas!
Different wreath as the natural moss one did not last...
But these are our solid oak indoor shutters.
Only ONE final Angel Cherub is hanging around in Spectrenoir ←click link.
A very sweet French door knob lavender sachet...
Yes, made in France that is!
Beautiful wreath and lovely angels. I have my house full of candles at Christmas, love the light! The indoor shutters are fantastic.ReplyDelete
Thank you and knowing me—I love angels and roses!
Oh, candles—and the light they bring—are lovely.
Indoor shutters I remember from my childhood and so happy we got them here.
No dusty curtains...
What lovely decorations you have. It is so nice to celebrate and be cheerful at Christmas. I'm sure that's what the Lord would want us to do. To remember His coming to earth and the reason for it.ReplyDelete
Thank you and yes, awaiting His coming with enchantment that sure is what the Lord wants.
That natural moss wreath was especially lovely, Mariette. I so enjoy seeing people's holiday decorations. Many years ago, when I was living in Halifax, someone broke into the storage locker I had in the basement of the apartment building and stole the bins of my Christmas decorations. Most of them were inexpensive and easily replaced, but there WERE some family and childhood "treasures" too. I can only imagine their dismay when they opened the bins, they probably thought they were going to find items of monetary value.ReplyDelete
Oh, the natural moss was the best but you hardly can find that anymore.
What a fate for losing your childhood treasures that way!
Dad used to go with us to the woods to his very special spots for collecting the moss to bed the entire nativity in. We had a special kitchen cabinet with middle opening under the doors with glass. That was a perfect spot for placing it and to view from children's height.
Wish I had that nativity too, we loved playing with the cute sheep and the camels.
Te ha quedado muy bien. Aún no me he puesto a decorar la terraza y el balcón , por las continuas lluvias que hemos tenido.ReplyDelete
La lluvia no es divertida, solo tenemos días oscuros y lúgubres.
¡Pero espero que pronto puedas completar tu trabajo para la Navidad que se acerca rápidamente!
The wreath is so very unique and beautiful, and I love that quote from Moore. Yes, it goes perfectly with this post!ReplyDelete
Dearest Martha Jane,Delete
Thank you and yes, the joy of decorating with some natural colors and things and adding some enchantment belongs to Christmas.
Heel mooie details!ReplyDelete
Ja, laat zoiets maar aan de zilversmeden over!
Geschmückte Kränze zur Weihnachtszeit sind einfach herrlich... ich habe einen mit vier Kerzen auf dem Tisch und einen mit Sternen verzierten an der Haustür hängen... deine Weihnachtskugeln und der Engel sind so schön... mag ich sehr. Viele fröhliche Adventsgrüsse zu Euch. ViolaReplyDelete
In eure Gegend gibt es ja reichlich viel schönes zur Advent und Weihnachten.
Auch viele fröhliche Adventsgrüße zu euch rüber!
I think this crown is so beautiful. I really like all the Christmas items.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much and we too love them all.
Your wreath is beautiful, dearest Mariette.ReplyDelete
The angel is such an elegant touch.
Hugs and blessings 💐
Thank you and yes, angels are always special.
Mooi hoor…ik hou van engelen…het hele jaar door…fijn weekend!🍀🎄❤️🐾🍀ReplyDelete
Dan kunnen we elkaar de hand geven want hier staan ook het hele jaar door onze houten, handgesneden engelen uit Italië.
Beautiful holiday additions to your lovely home dear Mariette.ReplyDelete
Thank you !
