It's that sparkly time of year again :)

Christmas is almost here, my favourite time of year, I decorate our house as soon as December the 1st hits, this year I couldn't help setting up a week early ;) I love this time of year for that magical feeling in the air, plus all that glittery sparkle and tinsel, if I could tinsel my house all year round I would hehe, here are some snaps I just took today starting with our dear angel, she has been the first thing we bring out always, she plays silent night and must be at least 30 yrs old now!

Tinsel, so pretty, so sparkly and shiny :P

Glittery star

ooooooh, glittery!! Is there anything better than glitter!

Good enough to eat...maybe not ;)

Happy Halloween

We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, I think it stinks, but after a Canadian friend of mine sent me a little "care package" and gave me a taste of how much fun it is, I couldn't help going out to the few stores we have here with Halloween supplies and spending up big. I felt I needed the cheering up this October anyway, (thats my excuse ;) So, our living room had a big spook job (as well as this amateur aussie can do anyway hehe). I ended up scaring myself with the fake spiders more than once which was quite funny, the fake web is so sticky, how was I to know it was attached to my foot with a plastic spider and a real one wasn't actually chasing me ;)
Anyway, going all out in the baking department too, I tried a famous USA Pumpkin Pie recipe, I wasn't sure about it at first taste, but it grew on me and I ended up eating nearly the whole thing on my own lol. Spooky cookies and cupcakes were another treat. yum!

My little bear Esme found a loving home in England, but poor Jasper is still waiting for the right person to take him home. I may place him on Ebay shortly.
So, until next time, I hope you had a fun Halloween, I envy all you trick or treaters out there ;)
