Only a few more days to go before the New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas? Ours was different from other Christmases, because my parents couldn't join us. My mother slipped in the snow and hurt her knee badly. She is still in a lot of pain and moving around on cruches. We also had a sick daughter and a very tired and sick niece and nephew who visited us, but spend quite some time sleeping. I wasn't feeling too good either. I suppose all the dinner parties, lunches, perfomances with my choir and the shopping for Christmas, had taken their tole. Luckily I still have a few more days left to stay at home and relax :-)!
Today's pictures show the turban I always make the day before Christmas. It's so big that we can eat from it for quite some time. It's just a simple cake filled with small pieces of chocolate and nuts, but we like it very much. It looks very decorative too with the sugar glacing and the silver pearls.
I would like to thank Sabine from the blog Beldecor, who send me and my daughters three lovely scented bags that she made herself. Bine they are really beautiful! Thank you very much for sending them! Please have a look at her blog. It's one of my favourites!
I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year, full of love and friendship! Take care!
Lieve groet, Madelief
