"BY Invitation Only" - December.....

CHRISTMAS - Cocktails

This month's post - a kind of dilemma for me...
just being a little bit too busy,
busy with heavy restoration at and in the house,
with dying and selling linen/hemp;
and on top of it in the middle 
of preparation for a short trip to Germany next week,
 to escape for a few days....

... running out with time....


...and find myself left with an empty/unfilled "to-do-post/shopping list"

So - sorry, sorry - no time for any Pre-Christmas Cocktails.

But I like to lead all my dear readers to our BIO group
to participate...

With my very best wishes for a
jolly and enchanting virtual

  1. What an excellent thing to do for us, Karin. So well-mannered and thoughtful. Instead of not participating at all you chose this route and I commend you, my dear friend. I love smooth jazz so much, especially all the instrumentals of Christmas music, which I have placed on my blog just this afternoon. Have a lovely holiday in Germany, continue on with the work at LaPouyette and keep us all posted on your whereabouts. Sending love....

  13. Hey this has me laughing Karin because we all know what it is like to have life so crazy busy that it is (almost!) overwhelming. Sounds like you will be in need of a cocktail or two before Christmas Day comes around….wishing you the most beautiful Christmas, with hopefully a few quiet moments to enjoy the magic of the day.
