Winter Wonder in our Hearts

with 2 comments

 

A very Happy Christmas to my Friends, Readers and Sponsors!

Sylva, “Stars & Snowflakes” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S7v3qwBplY
“Christmas eve, the lights are glowing
In the hallway and in my dreams
And somewhere in my heart it’s snowing
In the place that still believes

Silent night the stars are shining
And ice is forming in the dark
As we stay warm beneath the covers
Winter wonder in our hearts

Frozen whisper I still hear you
Singing sweetly of our love
Tender songs will keep me near you
Underneath the moon above

And softly in the night we’ll wander
Through the clouds of fallen snow
Hand in hand we’ll make our own way
There’s just a few more hours to go

Gently in our dreams I’ll hold you
As we lie with the stars above
And all the times I should have told you
Happy Christmas oh my love”

O Tannenbaum!

with 2 comments

“O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
(Your dress wants to teach me something:)
Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
(Your hope and durability)
Gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit
(Provide comfort and strength at any time)
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Das soll dein Kleid mich lehren
(That’s what your dress does teach me)” Ernst Anschütz, 1824

Christmas Trees became popular in Britain around 1848 when the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the Royal Family celebrating around a decorated fir tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert’s childhood in Germany. Soon every home had a tree decorated with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts.

Our elegant virtual fir tree is by Botanical and you’ll find three versions of it at Tannenbaum Event in the Tree Section. All the beautiful ornaments are from two current sets by Fancy Decor. You’ll need a steady hand and some quiet time out to decorate a similar tree, it’s useful to stand back frequently and check that the overall effect is balanced. Everything is modify so if you want a larger tree like I did in this scene, it’s easy to upsize the ornaments.

Countdown to Christmas

Things that make you go OhEmGee, look at the state of your office! Thus it is with pre-holiday organisation.  Even the pup is amused or perhaps he’s considering the tray of figs.  I know the kitten is considering the cardinals.
