New Year's Lunch Table Preparation...

Lunch Time...

My extended families here in Sweden shares and gathers to the yearly hostess home every New Year, therefore, it is another tradition that D´Nics always have a New Year's lunch at D´Box.

Preparation for a simple lunch...
New Year with IKEA's gadgets? Well, it is an awesome stuffs... loving them anyways!
 Use my forgotten silver chargers. They fits too?
My plan is to purchase 3 big round hurricane jars but could'nt find...
So, I ended up with these? Not the best but, am fine... 
I couldn't think anything for centerpiece, so, I grabbed my ugly Santas.
Then covered them in one of my largest cloche on my mirror cakestand.
Don't you like this shot? I never photoshop nor an effect touch.
This is an original shot from my Samsang NoteIII
 
 Nothing flashy, nothing really much. Just mix and match...  
That really work for us...
Here is it, with lights on!

I might be taking a risk setting some of these daily treasures. But hey! The presence and the blessings that count the most, right? Or does the silverwares or Noritake, Vilroy & Bosch etc etc are a must, during celebrating the holidays?

Well, well... I will be back with the lunch photos tomorrow.
I will serve my hummer/shrimp soup, a bit of mix salad, home bake Sesame/parmesan bread stick and dessert is choco pannacotta with gel clementine... We'll be back for more details, later.

But now, I am joing Marty with her party, so let's rock, girls!!!
Joining Marty's Party (this might be the last post)
this 2014 to Inspire her.
Thank YOU, Marty for spending your time hosting.

Have a Peaceful & Bountiful New Year.
God Bless Us All...

Yearly Tradion at D´Box...

When Family Gathers...

Yuletide is always so cozy when our nearest keens are all around us, isn't it? 

I now realized how my old Mama felt then, when one of her kids was not around every festivities occurred. That's why, I always pray that just even once or twice a year, all kiddos are home. We feel so blessed, that Noomi (granddaughter is 4 months) joined in our growing family.

HERE,  IS ALWAYS THE TRADITION,
THAT COUNTS...
Big Missy always lit the candles every Advent but now she lit the last one...
Doing this 22 years now.
She live in the university dorm and next fall, she will move to London,
to take her Masters at UCL..
She lit early b4 our Santa porridge breakfast. 
 
GH bought a real Christmas Tree every year and even this year and we are all
allergics with this trees and flowers, so it always stand in the ope porch.
This is the PERFECT spot...
WELCOME my friends, from all over the World. Pls. mind my simple Box.
That, I call my HOME. But in here no one need rules if someone need help.
Mind your step b4 heading in... YES! Shadows in here.
All lit and we are ready to welcome our baby Jesus...
 
This is the ambiance of D´BoX, red, white a touch of black...
My old collection V & B and new gadgets gathered for a merry table.
The table was set for a family Sunday dinner...
 This nook is my make-up table, however, Big Missy is home so, GH moved out his work station
This is GH "Man Cave". Pimped TV room that I just highlighted the theme
"travel"..
Man Cave Santa is here to stay and see to it that D´Box is in the best of everything...
Big Missy and Lil Missy, my precious treasures...
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL...
WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST.
Joining the 3Marias on their party... SSS2

Smiling Sally, pls. look around to find what we're looking for!
Thanks for making our day enjoyable gathering our treasure Marty.
Susan... I missed to joined ASAP, hope I still cope up with You...





After the Break...

Start a New Life...

After many weeks I was hibernating, I hope I can do all the things I love the most.

Thank you for all the messages I got from my sincere readers and followers. Yes, I was just busy nothing serious. 

Here are some of the reasons:
  •  Job is a mess when my department will outsource to Poland. I've been struggling with the responsible of the group due to some ethnicity reason (but quiet as of now). I fought my right.
  • I got a new member of the family. Now 4 months old. Her name is Noomi our granddaughter and she is wonderful. 

  • My Swedish language schooling to take an exams for self-appraisal.
  • The last but not the least: CRAVED all my attention. Taking a driver's license at my age? It was amazingly hard job but I of course: DID IT!!!

Oh yah! That's all the reason and you know, being a mother and a wife... Puuhh... make my head spin.

Anyways, today it is another story... and I will start some few things for you to remember me.

Shadow Shot Sunday:
This meme was the first meme I ever have... the first few members when Tracy started...
Hope the participants still remember the babbly Moi...
Taken at the foyée...chilly but sunny Sunday...
