a Warm welcome to

it reinforces it

    Dear Saskia I love these fine candies, but they do not eat often, you still need to pay attention to the line, right?:))
    Sending you a big hug and kiss, Zondra Art

  18. Jah! Wou ze ook halen, stonden op de reklaam maar wat dach je? Ze hadden ze weer eens niet! Dan toch maar de gewone meegenomen... Soms ben ik het zo beu dat hier in de winkels nooit wat te vinden is. 'Ja maar, wij hebben dat niet hoor!" Aaaarggghh. Sorry, beetje enerverende dag achter de rug. Weet je wat, ik pak een m&meke. Oef! Zucht

    p.s. The deer fabric (or card?) is adorable!

  39. PRECIOUS SASKIA!!! I just got home after a long parent conference this evening and I saw your comment and I AM SO THRILLED THAT YOU RECEIVED YOUR GIFT!!! YES, YES DEAREST, I wrote the story, I drew the pictures and I made the book from cardboard and special paper! I drew the castle for the tag and I drew the card. All for YOU.

    May you always think of me and the JOY you send me constantly. May each day bring you all the goodness that you so deserve, for you give us so much.

    Brrrrr, it is cold here; it was 3 degrees farenheit when I got home. But this is nothing chez nous; it can get as low as 30 below in January!!!!!


  40. Mmmmmm...... I love M&Ms..... so sweet!

  41. I love them too and everything else about this month! ;D

  42. I just picked up some of those M & M's today. We love them around here...I'm partial to the almond ones :-)

  43. Mmmmm, lekker. En wat leuk, deze speciale M&M's voor de kerst.
    Ook zo'n hele gezellige foto.
    Fijne dag.
    Liefs, Pauline

  44. Hallo mijn vriendin!

    Oh dear one, please be careful on the ice! I have fallen several times in my 24 years of living in either Boston Massachusetts or here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is considered one of the coldest states in the union! Do you teach as well dearest? Oh your school just sounds like a haven for children, and shouldn't that be so? Palaces, refuges, sacred places schools should be...I am soooooo thrilled that you are enjoying your gift. May you enjoy every moment of this PRECIOUS SEASON my dear one and OFF I go into the snow. We are having just about 2 inches today, enough to make that silence of the insulation of the snow so magical....Bises, Anita

  45. Oh you have just made my day, Saskia!!! Anita

  46. I love the quote about color! So great!


    Best wishes,


  47. Hi Saskia!
    Those M & M's ... famous around the world for bringing Happiness to every table; they are a little bundle of wonderful chocolate ~
    It's funny how you marked the day the first bag of this season's M & M's came into the home. I think similarly ... the seasons are sprinkled with so many fun memories... right down to those red and green little treats!
    I hope you are all feeling well, Saskia, and that each day is cause for celebration!
    Your children must be excited ~ this adds so much cheer and joy to your days. How lucky they are to have you as their mother. This is their most important blessing of all ♥
    Have a beautiful Thursday dear friend ~
    love, Maria
    ps...My nordicware pan arrives next week! {around the 15th} I'm so excited :o)

  48. Dear SWEET Saskia, oh i like them!
    I've never seen this limited Edition!!
    Sorry but i'am too late and time is running!!
    enjoy your day

  49. Just realised that you were a teacher too, I should have realised. Happy chocolate munching !

  50. Hi Saskia Friend!!! No, my so wanted and expected white sweet surprising box hasn't reached my hands yet. As soon as I receive it I run and type you a happy happy message, my Friend!!! You know, Ria has sent me a box some time before you did so and her box has not arrived yet...Mr. Postman, I guess, is swimming through the oceans and seas to get here....rsrsrs...do not worry, sweet Saskia, it will come safe and sound!!! I know!! My only wish is that I would love to have your white box under my Christmas tree on The Special Night!!!

    How are you, dear? Is it tooooo cold there? No riding to school anymore? I believe not, cause it is so cold you would freeze!!! Are you making good use of the cup pad I sewed for you?? I hope so!!! Now I have just learned how to sew small zippered bags ( I do not know how we call them in English...). I am sewing one for YOU and it is going in the next yellow box!!!

    Be fine!! Much love!!!! Bela

  51. Saskia my sweetest friend thank you so very, very much. A parcel from you is such a delight and to think you received my parcel today!!!!.... I agree it was meant to be.

    I am so delighted and overjoyed that you loved my little parcel and the beautiful message you left for me touched my heart so deeply. You are such a wonderful and beautiful lady to give so generously to many people, to bring Joy and Sunshine to the days. I am so delighted to know and have a friend like you. Thank you.

    Sofia is thrilled and can't wait for the parcel! We send hugs and kisses across the sea to you and your lovely little ones, have a wonderful evening my lovely friend. xoxoxo
