Bonjour et bienvenue !
Hello and Welcome!
I heard a knock at the door, here you are, come in and stay for a while...
Part of the Advent Calendar Blog Hop organized by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching
This past year, I stitched a lot on Christmas projects, Christmas trees ornaments, Christmas market with Brin d'un jour charts, but my main project was
Christmas tree "Avvolgente Natale" - Serenita di campagna
I just need to add the gold thread on the candles.
bought in January in a DIY fair, it was really great to stitch this chart.
J'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à réaliser cet ouvrage dont le dessin est très original.
Jo asked us to add some stories about our Christmas favourite decorations
I have a lot...
I already told you about the decorations
It's my oldest christmas ornaments, 72 years old
December 1944 my mum lived in Reims,
was working as a typist for US Head Quarter Army
and received those glass balls
from Army friends far from their home
who found with my grandparents a family
to spend Christmas
I love glass ornaments and visiting Austria and Germany we never miss an opportunity to visit glass-blower and crystal glass-making
DH likes to prepare a small Christmas/winter scene
near the fireplace as we bought
in BlackForest a lovely porcelan house
in Titisee shop
"Die romantische straße"
Porzellan licht hauser Brauerei
This year I added the cable car bought in Reutte for the kids (found in the attic with the kids puzzles!)
and a new building came in the landscape
J'ai finalement retrouvé le téléphérique donc il a trouvé sa place dans notre paysage de Noël et notre nouvelle acquisition est une église qui s'illumine de leds scintillants multicolores.
It's a lovely church, led lights (sparking effect)
I love stitched ornaments too, bought some in a Xmas market
with wreath and goose on the left side of the photo and
stitched some "twins" with edelweiss on red aida.
I love those gooses too and how they bring "life"
on the Xmas tree.
Since we added furnitures in the dining room
the only free space for the tree is one meter
close to the fire place, so I stopped "cooking"
my Christmas trees and change for an artificial
one, it is made of 40/45 pieces we have to
"built", my grandson (5 years old) was very
interested and helpful last Sunday,
concluding with :
ours is an "already done" one!
Yes dearling because it is a real tree!
Visiting Bayeux last month,
I saw in the Tapestry museum shop
some stuning ornaments, like
William the Conqueror,
boats and birds inspired
by the Tapestry
and a unicorn!
Faites un tour chez
vous y découvrirez
un monde surprenant.
I discovered a new world visiting the Christmas Company site, an amazing place with a lot of different themes, many characters, where you can meet even Benjamin Franklin, Claude Monet or Leonardo da Vinci! Nessie, Hamlet or Alice's White Rabbit!
To close this chapter, a small white Christmas tree
had a new life since several years
as a "steampunk Christmas tree" in the entrance hall.
Today, there is another friend to visit
Je partage cette journée du calendrier avec Julie
elle attend votre visite.
Have a lovely Saturday,
travelling around the blog world!
Je vous souhaite un très joyeux samedi
promenez-vous tout autour du monde visitant nos amies blogueuses et surtout brodez !
