I made our Santa sacks while we lived in the US after reading an article in the
Australia Woman's Weekly, they still need their pom poms!
My Santa with glasses was purchased by Geoff after I gave birth to Isabella, while all
my girlfriends got Dallas Diamonds as push gifts, I got my Santa
Our tree is covered in memories of our travels over the last, must I say it, twenty years!
A Christmas decoration from a destination is always on my purchase list while on vacation.
Enjoying the Season but need to get Wrapping

Antiques & Interiors
House to Home
During the 1980's my family did the whole US country look, my parents built a house from the Southern Living architectural plans books and surrounded it with cottage gardens. Our home was filled with braided rugs, quilts, checked and plaid fabrics, travel trunks as side tables, coffee tables, as blanket boxes at the end of beds. Mail boxes, decorative pieces and American pressed brass and tin lights were purchased and rewired. Even though most of that is gone now, a few things have stayed in our homes. Us kids have travel trunks/blanket boxes and the old quilts are still used on cold winter's nights.
Looking at theses images above just reminds me that practical, functional furniture will always find a home in my house!

Living in vivid colour!
It's been a tough week for Geoff with his eye surgery and his visions still isn't 100%
It will take putting a contact lense back in for vision to be restored.
It's had me thinking about how fortunate and blessed I am with my vision.
Feeling thankful for the gift of sight!
