No doubt that winter has come, and with it, the fascination of a very special season.
Today I have a spread to share inspired by all the trees around me .. I so love the woods!
It's meant for MOO MANIA & MORE.
Zweifelsohne ist der Winter nun da und damit beginnt eine faszinierende neue  Jahreszeit .
Heute hab ich eine Doppelseite zu zeigen, die angeregt durch die vielen Bäume um mich entstanden ist und die meine Liebe zu den Wäldern widerspiegelt. Gedacht für MOO MANIA & MORE .

Outside it is fairly cold and I started with christmas baking.
My first biscuits are traditional  vanilla crescent cookies.
They turned out very delicious this year,  maybe because of the walnuts I took instead of the hazelnuts or almonds I took usually. And I counted them: 193 -- I am proud of myself!

Es ist ziemlich kalt und so hab ich meine Weihnachtsbäckerei eingeläutet. Traditionell beginne ich jedes Jahr mit den Vanillekipferln, die mir heuer super gelungen sind, vielleicht liegt es an den Walnüssen anstatt der Haselnüsse oder Mandeln, die ich sonst immer verwende. Und ich habe sie gezählt: 193 --- Ich bin mächtig stolz auf mich!

After baking cookies , for an oversweetened tummy
the very best drink is and will always remain
Nach der anstrengenden Backarbeit und einem übersüßtem Magen gibt es nichts wohltuenderes als 

 a glass of beer!
ein Glas Bier. 

HAPPY T- DAY to all my wonderful friends over at


  1. Beautiful pages Susi, your sky reminds me of a crisp cold day when the light is just perfect for taking pictures.

    Great words, Nature always teaches but we don't always listen.

    How good are you baking all those biscuits! Think i should sample one or two so will pop over later for biccies & beer.

    Have a fabulous day:-) xxx

  2. wunderschöne Waldlandschaft im Winterrausch die hast du gezaubert!

    Schöne Adventzeit wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  3. Dein Waldbild ist sehr schön, und der Spruch gefällt mir gut. Ich liebe Bäume und die Natur auch. Dei Kipfeln sehen SEHR gut aus, yummy! Hugs, Valerie

  4. Was für eine tolle Waldszene! Biah du warst ja fleißig - ich will auch zum Wochenende backen - vorher habe ich wieder jeden Tag irgendwelche Termine - die besinnliche Virweuhnachtszeut - gröhl. Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Tag, liebe Grüße, Dagmar

  5. Wow, Susi, if this is your first baking of the Christmas season, I want to be invited to your house on Christmas day. I bet it will be a feast. But you can keep your beer. I'll bring my own coffee, since you don't have any at your place, anymore (grin).

    Thanks for sharing these lovely Christmas biscuits with us for T this Tuesday.

  6. I forgot to tell you what a gorgeous spread that is of your trees. I like your quote, too.

  7. Wonderful pages Susi with terrific colour choices as always.

    The biscuits look very yummy and will go nicely with a beer--non alcoholic for me though :)

    Love Chrissie x

  8. Cookies look beautiful! Love your words about the trees. xox

  9. schöne Doppelseite über bäume, die ich auch so liebe, und den klasse spruch dazu!
    hab auch schon vanillekipferl gebacken, aber höchstens halb so viele wie du (das Problem: ich ess die meisten selber;) die kinders sind unter der Woche nicht da)... ansonsten: prost! (bei mir wär das jetzt ein pils, ich mags ein bisschen herb)

  10. Those cookies look wonderful, I make something similar with Providl in it yummyyy
