~ Christmassy stills ~



1 and 2.  One of my favourite arcades in Melbourne looking all festive and ready for Christmas.  I was super lucky to get a night in Melbourne this week - time to catch up with my little sister, my brother and my pregnant sister-in-de-facto (there must be a better term for this???).  I had a little wander in town, great coffee and awesome company.  I may have bought Haigh's frogs just after this shot was taken.

3.   Pretty bokeh-y Christmas lights in Melbourne Central - I am a terrible shopper - I bought nothing - just wandered and crowd watched.

4.  The stunning installation of a million stars at the design market in Carlton Gardens.  I was quite overwhelmed by all the amazing stalls and goods on offer.  I bought a few lovely little gifts   - and got to meet the lovely Sonia from Dandelyne - would love to go again with more time (and deeper pockets)

5.  My baby has been watching me make some felt decorations and wanted to join in.  I cut but he did all the stitching and stuffing.  I'm impressed.

6 and 7.  I love rediscovering treasures that have been packed away for a year.  I've cleared everything off the mantlepiece and strung lights and put up some precious favourites (safely away from little hands)

8.  Even the poppies are looking festive as they overrun the parsley/rocket/tomato bed.

Are you feeling festive yet?

I'm linking up with Em every week to share the wonderful and the ordinary in my week.
