It's just around the corner!


It was my day off today, so I pottered around in the new house, cleaning, wiping and dusting.  That pesky builders' dust is everywhere!  Along with a healthy dose of red sawdust from the polished floors!

The house smells so clean...and new..and untouched!  We have so much to do, so much unpacking and arranging and organising...it's a bit overwhelming considering Christmas is just around the corner!

I can't wait to have Christmas in our new house....lunch on the deck, a real Christmas tree....I want the smell of Christmas wafting through the house...I'm so excited!

Christmas! Christmas! Christmas!  How I love that word!

When Mr C and I were in Brisbane last week, we did some shopping at the Myer Centre, and I just loved the displays and arrangements, I walked around taking photos just swooning at the beautiful decorations and colours and tablescapes!

Look!  Just look!









 What do YOU love about Christmas?

Your pictures are so pretty. I would love to buy all kinds of tableware for each season - but I have far too much already!
What do I love about Christmas? Hmmm.... perhaps the anticipation. The excitement in the air before the actual day.

GORGEOUS - I love the Christmas displays but all looking no buying at moment.

I can't wait to see what you do in your shiny new house.

I love wandering through the stores looking at all the sparkly displays, the trees, the giant hanging swags and ornaments.

We had nothing like that when I was young and our Chritmases were never spent at home so I missed out on everything that people enjoy these days. We had a good time at the guest house where we stayed but because of it I've never had the ability to really 'do' Christmas. Too old now but join in with family on Christmas Day and love it. I am so looking forward to the decorations etc in your new home when you share them with us. Your excitement comes right through to me from your blog. xx

Ooh I love Christmas too, the smells, the festivity, the whole atmosphere. You can almost feel the electricity in the air.

Oh and give me a heads up next time you're coming to Brisvegas and we'll have to set up a bloggy get-together while you're here xx
