Glimpses of Christmas - Onnellista uutta vuotta!






From the Christmas preparations to dreaming of the next gardening season... and wishing you all much love, happiness and health for the new year! ♥






Hohhoi, näissä kuvissa ei näy, miten paljon lunta meillä on. Pilvinen sää ei innosta kuvaamaan, ja otetuista kuvista tulee ihan harmaita. Taitaa olla aika kääntää katse kohti kevättä. :) Seuraavaksi muistellaan päättynyttä vuotta ja postataan puutarha-aiheista. Mukavaa joulunpyhien jatkoa ja vuodenvaihdetta... ja kaikkea hyvää uuteen vuoteenne! ♥





























































Pick one or all of them:

May your champagne be bubbly and your lashes long.

May your tea be hot and your reading time uninterrupted.

May your beer be cold and your servers smoothly running.

😊

  10. Hej Sara!

    I vinter har jag också en liten tofsmes här i trädgården men jag lyckas inte få den bild. Här ligger ingen snö, alldeles för varmt för att vara vinter så jag hoppas på ett riktigt snöfall framöver.

    Önskar dig Ett Gott Nytt År!

    Kram!

    1. Hello, Janicce! ♥
      The small book is a garden planner, by the Italian horticultural magazine "Gardenia". I use them for my garden journalling, no notebook apps for me. :)
      Big hugs!

  30. Oh my gosh, I haven't had that white dessert in so long. Can I ask what the name of it is? Your Christmas tree is beautiful, and those rolls look amazing. It was so nice to see a glimpse of Christmas around your home, Sara.

    1. Thank you, Sheri! ♥
      The white dessert is (Northern) Italian torrone. (The flavour of this bar is "Exotic Fruit".) I prefer the soft one... It's even better than chocolate. :)

  31. Yes, I did see your comment on our blog, thank you, Sara. Although I'm taking a blog break, I will still come by and visit you, and you can stop by any time, as the girls will be posting when they can. I know I've seen this dessert before, and now I know what it's called. : ) I remember it tasting so delicious.
