I can't believe that this time next month Christmas will be over....... I have been away for 3 days this week. I had to go to Perth (our capital city) for a specialist appointment as I have had a bleed in my eye (8 times actually!) so I was getting a bit concerned but thankfully after lots of tests everything has turned out OK so now I can concentrate on Christmas! I managed to do a bit of shopping in Perth then travelled on to our beachhouse and spent a night there organising security screens and pool cleaners so I hope things are going to be ready for Christmas.
I purchased a new Christmas tree and lots of gorgeous decoration in silver. I have that already decorated and windows cleaned and all linen washed - I also found a couple of prints for the spare bedrooms which I will show you soon.
Last Sunday we had just the perfect weather so I prepared a lovely Sunday morning breakfast table outside. I decided to place the table straight on the lawn instead of using the pergola. The outdoor setting is one I picked up off the road near our unit in Perth one day (actually SNo 1 helped me and he was sooo embarrassed!) but I love the curly legs it has. It is getting a bit wonky but that makes me like it even more!!
I have used a raggy quilt I made a while ago as the cloth and just added lots of pretty bits and pieces - most of these you have seen before but they still make a pretty table.
Pull up a chair and I'll get you some fresh fruit and a cup of tea!!
Have a lovely week and I hope all your Christmas plans are coming along nicely. I'm making lists each day and have all the tizzy things sorted now I just need to concentrate on the food (that makes me nervous!).
