Decoration Spotting

Hello

Thanks to visiting.

I can't help it but it just doesn't feel very Christmassy when it's hot and sunny.  There they were in Perth Australia putting up the decorations around the City with the brightest of blue skies behind them.  I suppose you get used to it and even enjoy Christmas Day on the beach, crack of dawn mind as it's too hot after 10 am.

We followed the Christmas trail, admittedly during the day, to see the decorations in the City.






Not really a Christmas decoration, it's there all the time!




We decided that they'd look much better at night all twinkly and colourful.

Back home, our tree is up with our accumulated decorations reminding us of past years, family and friends.  This year, a new decoration takes pride of place given to us in Australia, a reminder of a great time there this year.


Do you know, I think we'll light the stove this weekend and enjoy being cosy!

  1. Lovely decorations but I know what you mean, it doesn't seem very Christmassy with blue skies and sunshine.

  2. Yes, Christmas on the beach or in the heat of the day would seem quite unusual. Your tree looks lovely so nice to cosy up and enjoy it:)

    1. Thanks Rosie, although I enjoyed the blue skies, I'm happy with a couple of jumpers on in the warm by the fire. 😊

  3. It as a delight to have a tour around somewhere different with you. Your tree looks beautiful and lighting the stove is more in line with what we are used to.

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying it, some things are just the same and others quite different.

    1. I don't think I'd be able to eat a great big turkey dinner in the heat. x

  5. Isn't it funny? We bring in lots of light and twinkle because it's the darkest time of the year and yet in Australia, where it's their summer solstice, they maintain the northern tradition? x

    1. It just shows the traditions were so important to those arriving there that they've carried them on through the years being adapted along the way to suit. x
