Table Top Time joins SSS on First Advent Celeb


ABSOLUTELY QUICK YEAR...

It was just like yesterday we celebrated the New Year at my lil cousin's pad, then the Valentine'sDay, the death anniversary of my loving dad and that was March. June, lil Missy at home, graduated high school, my heart friends from Melbourne were at D´Box, July & August, me & GH (great hubby) celebrated our bdays, during the fall month of August. Suddenly it is end of the year. Isn’t it amazing? Days go too fast when we enjoyed what we are doing.

Anyhow, is the time for a cosy moment in every home, worldwide? I love Yuletide! The chimes, the scent of saffron and all Christmas spices. Ohhh... I so love it. Sadly enough, I am away from home, or my heart is away from my loving family. Nevertheless, that is life. Sometimes, we have to separate from our love ones, to create a new life with our own family. Those happy moments together cherished & mesmerized in our hearts.

So, now, it's the first Adventb4 Christmas Eve.. Shadows w/ TTT
CHECK THE SHADOWS HERE & THERE...

HAPPY 1ST ADVENT TO ONE AND ALL...

Advent means (Lord's) arrival, and so are called the four weeks preceding Christmas, the fourth Sunday before Christmas until Christmas Eve. The four Sundays of Advent is called first, second, third and fourth Sunday of Advent, or a little more solemn, first, second, third and fourth Sunday of Advent.

Regarding Advent calenda, Advent is the same as December 1 to 24. First Sunday of Advent begins the church year. Advent was a time of fasting during the Catholic period, and that was also called julfastan, an anticipation for the celebration of Jesus' birth. You could not eat meat and weddings, for example, forbidden during Advent

So hope your all enjoying how I live my simple life at D´Box with my lil family and extended families.
BE WELL...& GOD BLESS...

DINNER

Yummy... GH really appreciated the preparation for his day. He so love the dinner. I prepared a very simple recipe but he mentioned many times that it's a "sumptous" dinner. It's a pork noisette (compositioned) by my own way. I made a sauce of dijon mustard & basilica with a lil whisk of bacon. I prepared tagliatelle pasta for a change and at D´Box, green sallad is always a MUST in our table. Still Höganäs set here as you can see.

Smudge toffee cake (own recipe) Kosta Boda crystals. Can you see the cloché? I used my Kosta Boda crystal flower vase as a cloché rester, just to make sure that I don't make a mess on my tablecloth. Dajeerling tea purchased in Fortum & Mason, honey purchased in Greece a month ago. Tea mugs are also from Höganäs. I have a set of 16 from the smallest to the largest piece.
