  1. This is a really charming site. Congratulation!

  2. Vienna always looks gorgeous from your photos so I am sure it will excel at Christmas.

  3. I should know better than to visit your blog before breakfast, Merisi!! You always have at least one delicious capture!! Beautiful as well as delicious ones today!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Viennese Christmas from A to C. I would love to nibble on these cookies.

  5. I wish Christmas tree lots would open late here! That way everyone would have a fresh tree when Christmas arrives . . . Vienna seems to be gorgeous in every season, but the lights and angels and sparkle of Christmas are probably my favorites.

  6. The trees for sale along the sidewalks of New York are fortunate this year, because the weather has been on the chilly side, with a little rain every so often. I do like the idea of putting up a tree in Christmas eve; maybe that is because that is when we always decorated the tree during my childhood.



Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
