GOODBYE 2009 HELLO 2010



Well hello girls!

I've had a wonderful year discovering the world of blogging.
I have enjoyed staying up late at night (way too late sometimes) checking out all the lovely blogs
and all the gorgeous things you ladies out there create.
There really are some talented people out in blogland.
The heart warming stories, the photo's of beautiful homes, time spent with family,
and just life in general in this wonderful world we live in.

I hope 2010 is a prosperous and healthy year for you all.
May all your dreams come true.

Cindy

Markets




Hi again, just wanted to show you all a couple of pictures of my market stall i had on Sunday at Robertson. We had a great day, spoke to alot of interesting people, sold a few goodies, and basked in the sunshine. Can't complain about that.

MT WARRIGAL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS TO LIGHT UP YOUR HEART


Hi everyone, well i have just been reading over and over again how busy everyone is at this time of year, and i think we're all in the same boat. We had a busy weekend starting on Friday night. I took two of my girls, aged 10 and 23 to Carols by Candlelight at Shellharbour. It was just a beautiful night, with some really great singers, lots of candles and full of holiday spirit. After the Carols had finished we decided to go and see if a home i had taken them to for years when they were young, were still doing their Christmas lights, and as luck would have it, they did. You see, we have only recently moved back from another state, so we hadn't been there for 5 years. When we drove around the corner, i thought my 23 yr old was going to cry. Alot of her childhood was spent looking at these lights, it is like we went back in time. Every year the kids and i would drive the streets at night , with the Christmas CD playing in the car, looking at all the beautiful displays people had gone to so much trouble to put together, and at least 2 or 3 times a week we would go to this particular house. It is like a fairy land. The music is playing, there are christmas movies projected onto the garage doors, lights are twinkling amongst the flowers, everywhere you look in the garden something different is happening. It is the nicest display we have ever seen. I would urge anyone living in the Illawarra or close to it, to go to Mt Warrigal and see these lights. They are a dream. Here is a picture of them from the other side of the road, but the photo really doesn't do it justice.

Christmas Pics




Hi, finally today we unloaded a few of the decorations, didn't realise we had so many. I know i'm a bit behind, but i'm getting there slowly. Just took a couple of shots before it got dark. Will need to tinker a bit more tomorrow and get things in their proper place.


As i mentioned in my previous post, i have been getting ready for my market stall on Sunday, but with so many things, i am having trouble trying to pack things into boxes without damaging anything. And, i still have some furniture to paint before then. So i guess it is a busy time for everyone. Have a great week. What's left of it.

SWEET DISHES







Hi all, what a busy time of year. So much going on in our lives, just as it is in yours i'm sure. Christmas is just around the corner, and still a few more pressies to buy. Nearly there. We have decided to spend Christmas day at the beach this year, with fishing rods and picnic basket, i'm sure it will be a nice relaxing day. Just what the doctor ordered.. Let's just hope it's not raining Christmas day. Then we will have to go to plan C, because i'm not sure what plan B is yet! We got all the decorations out of the garage tonight, so hopefully tomorrow we will have the tree up and the decorating will be in full swing. I know, we're a little late, but we will catch up.






It's market day for us on Sunday. I have been busy pricing things and packing them ready to pack in the trailer. Will try and take lots of pictures this time. I seem to get carried away setting things up when i get there, then the customers start rolling in and before you know it, the day is over, and i have forgotten to take some pics. But i will try harder this time. I wanted to show you some cute little dishes i got at a flea market recently. Just love the pink one. Also, this cute pink handbag and gloves.






And also, i just wanted to say thank you for all the Christmas decorating inspiration out there. There are soo many beautiful blogs with all their Christmas fare, it's hard to turn the computer off and go to sleep. Until next time.
