December 7th

Good morning friends!

I am on my second pot of tea this morning, and still in my bed with some delicious candy canes and gingerbread cookies from yesterday! We had such lovely party, but whole weekend was so busy-busy that I am exhausted still! I am going to take it slow, and sort all happy pictures from yesterday. 

I am making a scrapbook for Anabel for Christmas, and these pictures need to get in too... Or what do you think:

They are pretty great, don't you think? There are a few still, one of me with my pretty party-dress on, just before someone dropped a glazed apple on my bow (never mind, that apple was delicious!):

And then there is this one with Birthday-girl and her new bracelet&scarf (she loved them both!):

...and Bernard eyeing the cake just after Anabel had blown the candle:

These will be the greatest memories for all of us! Now I will start decorating the pages with these pictures, and I think I need third pot of tea too. But just one more thing before I forget: I have opened my calendar too, but have been so so busy that haven't remembered to share my finds with you! On fifth there was a little candy cane, on sixth a present (just perfect for Anabel's birthday!) and this morning I got a little gingerbread man - this calendar is so perfect for my December!

Happy Monday, see you tomorrow again!

Hello Vivienne,

Thanks for the tip about bow-cleaning, I just put it soaking, you can't believe how sticky that apple-stain is! Paws crossed it will turn out like new.

Have a wonderful week, I am all rested now, and ready to show you more of Riverland!

Hello Anna I am so glad you got a lie in this morning. It's well deserved after the party. Your photos are lovely, such fun memories of the day. Say hi to Mia and enjoy lots more cups of tea xx

Hello Jane!

That rest was really needed after all that partying! I am still happily scrapbooking here, candles lid and some Christmas music playing... Happy evening to you too!

See you tomorrow!

Hienoa, että jaksoit kuitenkin jakaa noita ihania valokuvia juhlista. Teillä on ollut todella hauskaa!

Mia said...

Hei Marle!

Meillä oli mahtavaa, ja kuvat jäivät mukaviksi muistoiksi!

Ihanaa uutta viikkoa sinulle, täällä häntä jo vipattaa kohti uusia seikkailuja!

Hello Anne,

We had lovely time, and I am so happy to hear that you had wonderful weekend too! Here's to happy new week, we will see here often!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
