  8. Hoi Saskia,

    Jij bent er al helemaal klaar voor! Het zijn dan ook wel hele gezellige maanden.

    Wij hebben vorige week de kerstlampjes opgehangen rondom de spiegel. Het was zo donker in huis dat we het niet konden laten. Het ziet er nu allemaal veel gezelliger uit! Ook alle kaarsenstandaards zijn weer tevoorschijn gehaald. Laat de donkere maanden maar komen :-)

    Ik hoop dat julle een fijne herfstvakantie hebben gehad?

  41. Hi Saskia!
    I've missed this post!
    I visit you often on facebook and have been a little quiet here in blogland. I have had a terrible cough and sore throat that has really slowed me down. So much to do around me, cleaning up after the kitchen project!
    Your sweet treat looks so 3-D, it looks like it could pop through my screen!
    Holiday baking is around the corner! I can't wait!

  53. Ik wens je heel fijne feestmaanden Saskia. Sinterklaas, een heel leuk kinderfeest, behoort hier tot vervlogen tijden, geniet er nog volop van nu de kids nog klein zijn. Ik wens je nu al een prettige verjaardag! En tja, gebreide kerstballen, ik was er vorig jaar al weg van en nu het boek erover in het Nederlands uitkomt, kan ik niet wachten om het aan te schaffen en aan het kerstbalen breien te slaan;-)
    Groetjes,
