YULETIDE 2010

Been quite for awhile...

It's been 2 weeks, I was away from my LT & the bloggieland. It was a kinda weird but being away & out of town & BUSY, not funny.

Of course, I missed TTT, TS & my SSS... hmmm... what the "...." is that? asked many? Well, folks, these are the love of my life in bloggieland. The meme's, but to my family & friends who don't blog, they don't know & don't have an idea what am talking about.

Anyways, my Christmas Eve, was one of the most quite Christmas I ever had. A 3some at home on Christmas Eve, fun? Well, feel relief but I missed my son & his lil family.

P.S.
Many sent sms & emails asking the abbreviations: TTT (TableTopTuesday), TS (Tablescaping) SSS (Shadow Shots Sunday)

Here's the glimpse of our evening...
One of the reason I was quite is this...
Simple dinner table...
And the Christmas Buffét for 3... Swedish way!

Well, I had all the Christmas food. Ham & beetroot, Salmon, Christmas sausage, Jansson's temptation (not my fav), pickled herrings, etc etc & all the Christmas dessert. Ahhh... I felt, I explode §;-)

Anyhow, Table Top Tuesday is coming (tomorrow) exactly! I don't really know what am thinking? While packing all my Christmas blings, it came across in mind that I'd decorate the so called buffé in our lounge. Is it a good idea? How, what to deco? MODIFICATION! is the word I love this days. Recycle... do you think, I'm funny?

COME WHAT MAY...HERE IT IS...White silk table runner, the silver crown & ivy was gathered
Our guardian angels lays & hold our world ready for the New year
Silver/glass finial (guess this is the name) stand in its place
Bells hanged on my door but they wants to join to welcome the NY
Doves are all around... striving for PEACE & UNITY
I gathered some Xmas balls, pearls, garlands...
I added some Xmas lights for coziness, sake
The "Giver" stand still offering her blessings to Us all...

YES, these are the simple treasures I gathered around & about at D´Nics & they are my faves. Can you see the colour scheme? Green, white /pearls & silver? Yes, they're my love colours. Green for bountiful, white for purity, pearls for truth & silver for eternity.

Hope you enjoy the simple & compact living of a simple career & full pledge mum, Chubby & Chieque...

HAVE A BOUNTIFUL & PEACEFUL NEW YEAR 2 ALL..

3rd Advent & Sta. Lucia Day on my SSS# 43

Yes! 2 more weeks & it's Christmas Day...

Tomorrow 12th of December is the 3rd Advent but beforehand, Sweden celebrates Sta. Lucia Day (pronounce Italian) on December 13th. It's special day. Students from music schools, carols & visits hospitals, home for the aged, banks, public places & schools. And mind you, my friends, this day, our youths drink to death §;-) I meant, this is their day to try alcohol, and get pissed. Hope swedish parents advice their kids just to have a moderate intake, or else "your in trouble, kiddo!"

I don't know what will be the outcome of my participation today, as I didn't have so much sun today, although I was out early & out again mid-day but to no avail, so, as usual have some shots at my home & some from my office yesterday.

SO HERE ARE MY SUBTLE SHOTS PARADE...
Before I left, I lit this candle for a cozy touch
On my window pane, in my washing sink, some subtle?
My candle holder is buried but both stood still giving me wink*
GH wants to shovel the snow that stuck the driveway b4 we left
Our gazebo during winter, a real pretty cloché
Sun this morning... at 07.30am while walking around vicinity
No shadow but I just want to share my fresh & calm morning §;-)
And the platform of our train station, cozy, huh?
We ended up to a square in town & this spotted my sharp eyes...
When we came back home, this is how our gazebo looks like
Another subtle, anyhow a glimpse of shadow, though?
Vignettes I love in my home...
My modified Nativity lays on a mirrored cake stand, you like it?

That's mine & GH day, after having our morning walked... then we had a great day preparing for dinner...
************************************************************************************
This was the day after lunch on Friday 10th of December
Ha! behind is where I hide, when don't hear from me...
Staffs cozy corner but I only took the thing I needed
Bar tables, far end of from the cozy corner...

WOW!!! I thought I ony have some shot, eh?
HAPPY SHADOW SHOTS SUNDAY MY DEAR FRIENDS
ALL OVER THE CONTINENTS...
