heading to hobart



i am packing my bag with a few things and heading to hobart, tasmania, our island state of australia ! spending this christmas with family and friends down there.
i am refered to by one of the family 'as the old girl from accross the pond' ! he is referring to bass straight, which separates the mainland from tasmania. the 'pond' will be very busy soon, with boats in the sydney to hobart yacht race, which starts in sydney on boxing day. fair sailing to all those who are taking part.

i am flying down !

some visions of christmas at home here !

i love the fresh new blooms of these hydrangeas in the garden at this time of the year













i love the haze of blue in the garden at this time
















cards with messages come from friends















this one reminds me of family and traditions of the past shared by my mother and her sisters and brothers


gifts received and given



































my birdie lights that glow in the dark







































and the message on my front door and to all of those who see this post !

Hi Lizzie, welcome "home" to Tassie. There is something about Christmas, isn't there, particularly family traditions. Your's seems to revolve around beautiful crafts. My family's revolves around cooking. Have a wonderful time over Christmas!
