Our Christmas tree is still standing in the hall, waiting to get it's final position in the living room, but I could not wait any longer. I simply had to start decorating. I made a simple wreath with all kinds of green twigs to put on our front door, mixed some bunches of white flowers and put more Christmas decorations around the house.
We had pea soup for lunch. It tasted really delicicous! My pea soup was never a great success, but I believe that for the first time ever I managed to get it right!
After years of waiting and searching, I found the white Hella Jongerius vase in the Ikea last week. I am so happy with it! It looks very simple, but with the little holes that make a floral pattern, ít looks absolutely beautiful. I arranged the silver branches in the vase and decorated them some more with angels, metal hearts and a beautiful snow star made of tiny beads that Nicola sent me.
Dear Nicola thank you once again for Delia's cookbook and the magical star! I hope my parcel will arrive soon :-). I have been leafing through the cookbook and the Cranberry pudding looks very tempting!
