Another Party…..and a clean up!

On Saturday Mrs Mac and I travelled out to see Miss Helen for the last hurrah of 2013.

Helen had all her Christmas decs up

20131223-094239.jpgMrs Mac had received some beautiful fabrics from Pink Chalk Fabrics in the mail……very exciting!

20131223-094414.jpg….and so gorgeous!! They very nearly made an escape and came home with me – unfortunately Mrs Mac wanted them back…..can’t understand why??!!

Over the last couple of days, I’ve managed to clean up/clear out and change this….

20131223-094536.jpg…to this….

20131223-094600.jpg…and decided it was high time we had some Christmas decs of our own up, so this…

20131223-094646.jpg…has become this…..

20131223-094842.jpgThe presents were wrapped and put under (around?) the tree at 6.00am today……and all the while – decorating and wrapping – my head was filled with “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas“. We live in Australia! It’s Summer! We’ve never had a white Christmas…….!

Hope your preparations are well under way.

    Yes M the countdown begins …….. then it is all over in a flash and everyone is exhausted at the end!!!! (poppets first Xmas Tree!)

  3. Looking good for Christmas! I would have tried to steal the fabric too. Looks like we are going to have a wet and windy Christmas. I’m off to the hairdresser this morning, then the last minute food shopping. Our nice (shoe shop) neighbours are coming in for drinks and nibbles tnight, then a quiet day tomorrow, ready for Christmas Day.

    Oh, Meredithe, how I would love to make your dream come true and give you a white Christmas. If only I could send the 6″ of snow I have in my yard here in Iowa to you, I would! I wish you a very Merry Christmas whatever color it comes in! 🙂
