It's a dark and rainy November day. All the beautiful snow has melted away. On your way to the letter box, you notice that the hares have been chomping your mountain pines and that the rain and squirrels are damaging your new, cute bird feeder.
In the letter box, there are bills and other stuff like that... but there's also a cheerfully yellow parcel. Our dear friends from Germany have already sent their Christmas greetings to us!
Thank you so much! :)
In these photos, you can see some of the tasty (and all of them organic) and pretty things there were. Chocolate coated gingerbread...
Our favourite table spreads... :)
A fun and a very fragrant idea, a Spice Advent Calendar (by an Austrian company Sonnentor):
24 herb and spice blends...
... for example a Gingerbread Spice Mix...
... and Blossom-Spice Sugar: beet sugar, sunflower petals, cornflowers, marigold, rose blossoms, vanilla, cinnamon cassia, cloves, ginger. I hope you can see the lovely colours of the mix! :)
There's also a pretty recipe booklet. The last image of this post is from the booklet.
It's about one month until Christmas. Next Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent! :)
