Hello my blogfriends,
the snow from yesterday is gone and now we have rain and the sky is grey.
Inside is it very dark.Candles are burning and give a nice light.
A perfect day to bake the last cookies for Christmas. I have
baked Vanillekipferl and Klosterkipferl.
The kitchen in the glasshouse was a gift to my birthday.
Is it not nice?the table is a musical clock .

Blessings, Regina
