At this time of the year we are more  likely to light a candle. I love its light and the shadows casted on walls...

In the woods

Growing up, my parents ,in my eyes, had an awful wallpaper in their bedroom... the woods!
Something like this:

Now i have to say, this trend is growing more and more on me. Still i would never put anything similar on my walls.
Recently i came across this birch wallpaper i could consider putting on.

It has a scandinavian feel to it.. very stylish.

More trees...

If you need more inspiration or consider buying, please go over at my favorite Wallpaper online shop

Here come some of my faves:

Foie Gras, Escargot et Magret de Canard- My Christmas Dinner

 First course: Foie Gras avec confits d'onions et de figues

Second course: Escargot de Bourgogne

Third course: Magret de Canard caramelisé

Cheese course: Epoisses,Comté, Brie
(For Christmas, we plant wheat to predict the success of the year to come. If the wheat has grown well, it means the year will be good-logically... 
ours is not as we have hoped it to be, but the hope dies at least)

Desert: Sablés de Noël

A little less christmassy decoration: I have this huge centerpiece of 5 orchids and since they are fragile, i decided to leave them on the table

I hope for you my dear readers, that everyone had a wonderful and tasty Christmas.
