Sharon's Journey Through Life

Tuesday, December 16, 2008


I know that I am very late with this entry. I've been so busy with Christmas parties and the last week of work before Christmas that this was just put on the back-burner.

To see more Photo Challenge participants go to Brenda's Photo Challenge.

The girls and I usually spend a day on the first weekend in December putting up our Christmas decorations and the tree. It's always great fun and it is compulsory to play Christmas carols really loudly while we do it. The only bit I hate is packing up all my other stuff and packing it away under the house (too much like hard work).

This is our Christmas advent calendar. I made it when I first had Tegan and it goes up every year loaded with treats and the girls count down to Christmas.
It has a very Aussie flavour, don't you think?

Part of my Christmas bear cuddle.

My Santa collection is always in the lounge. I have a large variety of Santa's - traditional, wooden, tin, pottery. The more the merrier.

A few of my Christmas decorations on my
great-grandmother's sewing machine.

One of my favourite Christmas baubles.

A close-up of my gorgeous white Christmas tree.
The girls and myself love hanging all the pretty decorations.

My Christmas tree - as you can see it's all pastels and pretties :-)

My snowman collection - from pieces that I painted to
lovely pieces from Switzerland.
