Joining Lady Marty

Ha! First time...

I was really eager to join Lady Marty with her meme every Tuesday quite awhile now, but there are so many hindrances on the way.

Anyway, as this is my first time, I don't really quite sure what to share & show to her avid participants. Hmmm... a girl from nowhere, joining this meme?" dóh!!!" my family said. Do you think they peep in, in your post? I said, "no worries, this is just a game. A true blogger visits everyone who visits her". Well, as what I read about the information of blogging rules.

Whatevah!!! I give my best shots, then! So here are my first shots for today...

After celebrating the European Father's Day last week-end, I have to rush to change the decos and get ready for the Swedish tradition.

It happens that me, my cousins & their families gathered at home during first Sunday b4 Christmas Day, they call it First Advent. So, on November 28th, everybody will come and gather in my crib and of course, I will make the Swedish mulled wine. This year is with a taste of safron.

Red for mulled wine with alcohol & non-alcoholic for the white set
A simple centerpiece planned...
The motiffs: red, white & silver in the kitchen...

You know what I mean and I do appreciate and mean it.

  9. Idag behöver man en sån go pläd, här blåser det jättekallt. Du är fantastisk med dina dukningar, alltid lika fint. Läckert med påfågeln som dekor. Och härligt med glögg, varmt och sött passar bra denna kalla årstid.
    Ha det gott vännen
