Highlights of 2012- Das Beste von 2012


Looking back ....and looking forward!
During the last 3 months blogging was sort of difficult, due to family issues, moving house and no internet yet.
I tried following all your wonderful blogs during this time, which was always a little highlight in the week! I didn’t have the time to comment much or keep regular contact to so many nice people of you, but I am sure you understand!
2012 turned out to be a difficult year in the end…but I am looking forward to the New Year with hope and joy, wishing for better times!
As our business is closed over the holidays, I had the opportunity to get some more time with a pc…and to look back into the “mini-world” of 2012! I choose some “highlights” for you…they turned out to be more than I thought! J
Mini-Jazzi’s visit to Greece definitely is  T H E wonderful happening of the year! I would never have imagined how much happiness and kindness she brought with her! Special greetings to you ,Jaz! J
Thank you all, and many many especially  , for your nice, encouraging, supportive, kind comments and emails- especially during difficult times.
Thank you for the surprise gifts…so many of them...( i  couldn't find all photos right now, there were presents from Petra, Karin, Dale, Ana and others, too! ) 
Thank you for personal emails, greetings and words of understanding and comfort!
Thank you for sharing – not only minis- but also life experience, wisdom, happiness and sadness, troubles and joys!
Now..Enjoy…a small review of the passing year and let me express to all of you my best wishes for the NEW YEAR! May you all –and your dear ones- be blessed with health, happiness, ideas, friendships, beautiful times, creativity, success, and may all your dreams come true! (…you never know  !!!! )
Ein frohes und gesegnetes Neues Jahr euch Allen!
Waehrend der letzten 3 Monate war das Bloggen etwas schwierig, wegen Familienangellegenheiten, Umzug und immer noch kein Internet.

Ich konnte trotzdem immer wieder mal in all eure schoenen Blogs schauen- was jedesmal ein kleiner Hoehepunkt der Woche war! Leider hatte ich nie genug Zeit, um euch allen Kommentare zu schreiben und um all die schoenen Kontakte zu pflegen...aber ich denke, ihr versteht!

2012 wurde zu einem schwierigen Jahr zum Schluss...aber ich freue mich auf das Neue Jahr mit Hoffnung und Wuenschen fuer bessere Zeiten!

Da unser Geschaeft ueber die Feiertage geschlossen ist, konnte ich mit etwas mehr Zeit an einen Pc...und habe einen kleinen Rueckblick  in die „Mini-Welt“ 2012 getan. Einiges habe ich fuer euch ausgewaehlt..und es ist viel mehr geworden als ich mich dran erinnern konnte!

Der Besuch von Mini-Jazzi in Griechenland war der absolute wunderschoene Hoehepunkt! Ich haette ja nie gedacht, dass ein Pueppchen so viel Freude und Spass mit sich bringen kann! Ganz besondere Gruesse, dir, Jaz! J

Danken moechte ich fuer alle – und so viele ganz besondere- Kommentare, Emails und Gruesse!Danke fuer eure Unterstuetzung, euer Mitdenken, euer Mitfuehlen!

Danke fuer so viel Ueberraschungsgeschenke.( ich koonte jetzt nicht an alle Fotos..geschenke kamen auch von Petra, Karin , Dale, Ana und anderen! )

Danke !

Jetzt..Geniesst nochmal das vorbeigehende Jahr und lasst mich euch allen nun Segen, Gesundheit,Ideen, Freundschaften, schoene Zeiten, Kreativitaet,Erfolg wuenschen fuer das neue Jahr!  Und..dass all euere Wuensche in Erfuellung gehen! ( ...man weiss ja nie!!! )

O Come All Ye Faithful - Mahalia Jackson

Remembering my mother who died one day before christmas in 2005.
This was her favourite Christmas Song and we listened to it together just one day earlier. When i told her that i was sure that she would join her beloved Mahalia singing in heaven soon...she smiled ...and i cried.
But she is there now..i know! Singing!

2. Advent mit kleine Geschenken aus Finnland! with little presents from Finland!

First...a picture from my sister! i also got her the beautiful little christmas scene! ( and snow in Germany!!)
Zuerst....ein foto von meiner Schwester..sie hat auch die suesse kleine Weihnachts-szene! ( und Schnee!!)
Then...i exchanged little gifts with Tuikku http://minitarinat.blogspot.gr/  from Finland for her Adventcalander..i had chosen the 9th of Dec! Here are the beautiful little gifts she sent me! 
Thank you so much! I love them!  :)  
Ich habe mit Tuikku aus Finnland kleine Geschenke getauscht bei ihrem Adventskalender! Hier sind die wunderschoenen Saechelchen, die ich heute ausgepackt habe! Ganz herzlichen Dank Tuikku!!! 

I send her a few little books and this : 
The foto is from Tuikkus Blog!!! :)
and now something funny...you know , we moved house...so, because i am changing some furniture etc in my room, the dollhouse had to go somewhere else for a while...! It ended up in the kitchen :) !!! Well..the funny thing is, we all like it there., it doesn't disturb at all....and it makes the kitchen much nicer!!! :)
..und noch etwas Lustiges zum Schluss. Ihr wisst ja, dass ich umgezogen bin. Weil in meinem Zimmer momentan einiges geaendert wird, musste das Puppenhaus zeitweilig raus...es endete vorlaeufig in der Kueche...wo es allen gut gefaellt, es keinen stoert..ganz im Gegenteil!!!
