Almost ready for Christmas




Only a few more fun chores to complete.


Fresh greens and fresh fruit for the table centerpiece.





It will be replaced with a white rose bouquet at dinner time. 
(Don't you hate to look across the table when a tall centerpiece takes center stage). 





Lifesaver Garlands are still my favorite Christmas Tree decorations.  





More and more of the "open" water is disappearing.





Early morning surprised us with new snow.





It's time to get out the cross country skis and pack up a picnic.





Geese need to fly south.  





Friends are stopping by to wish us well.

That is  my favorite part of this Christmas Season.  


May light and love be with you always.  

Gina

    1. Dear Sieglinde, We are all so happy to have this extra snow. We have had a few lean years and now our Farmers are dancing in their fields.
      May your Christmas be filled with much love and happiness. ox, Gina

  3. Dear Gina, there is such a glow of Christmas in these photographs...both those taken indoors and out. Still no overnight frost here in New York. Very odd, but it's actually good to have the air turning a bit cooler. I did wear gloves for a couple of days!

    Just hoping to find time to put a few more finishing touches of the season around this apartment, along with a bit more baking, while feeling somewhat more relaxed.

    Happy Christmas! xo

  6. Dear Karin, Fröhliche Weihmachten wünschen wir dir liebe Karin. I hope that this Christmas finds you among good friends and family. We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet you and Mr R in person, not just once but twice. Our visits, to your beautiful Ferienwohnung, will always be remembered as the highlight of our European trips.
