Happy December Weekend.
December....official beginning of the hectic, silly season... 34 degree heat this weekend is not helping preparations, though l did pull out the Christmas tree on the 1st and set it up, you can see how it looks a bit further down the post. l bought new lights this year, ones with silver cord which match the white tree a lot better than the green cord l've been trying to hide for years haha!.....My daughter and her fiancé will arrive home in less than a fortnight for a couple of weeks, so l'm trying to shop, clean and organise before she gets here so we can spend our time doing pretty much whatever we're up for on the day.... if l'd really thought about it l would have ordered all my presents online and had them sent to the door like the kids have done.......oh well there's always next year:-)
November is the time for peonies here in Oz....and the flower seller at the market had some beautiful
blooms going out for almost nix......only problem was they were almost finished so photos had to be taken within a day or two.....l think l shot them just in time:-)
l also used the leftover slurry to plaster and stiffen this lace bag l had pre-sewn.
l found a pretty childs merry go round at the opshop for a dollar....it wasn't working at that price which didn't matter as l was only interested in the little wooden carved horses....l figured they'd make lovely tree decorations. l wound pink wrapping ribbon around each pole and made a tiny tulle wreath for each pony...then l saw Rachel Ashwell was selling little unicorn decorations, so why not add a papier mache horn to each one.....
Wishing you all a calm and relaxing weekend....thanks so much for stopping by,
Til next time,
