Christmas come early........

Hope you like the new Christmas look................you know I can't leave anything alone.............a change is as good as a holiday...........lol...............

This is the flower of a Queensland Lace Bark Tree................the flowers are nothing like anything else I have seen and I have several of these trees in the garden flowering now..... and they drop off and make a pretty carpet under the tree........

Went out to lunch today to the quilting group ..........I am kind of a "lurker" to their group........get to go to lunch occassionally........and boy was it a good lunch.........

This is what I made for my secret santa present............Bron loved it thank goodness.........she is so "pretty pink" colours............

And as for me I got this wonderful present from Gillian a wine bottle bag and some extras.....just perfect for me the girl who enjoys a wine or whatever......lol

The little sign says "Welcome to cluttered chaos" - this girl knows me too well...........

Finally I have hundreds of these Agapanthus just starting to flower in my garden................another one of my all time favourite plants...............I have them everywhere in the garden and mostly blue but some white.............
Opps nearly forgot about the draw...................OMG did I pull some lurkers out of the cupboard............lol............75 comments.....who knew you were all there...........thanks to Jodie (check out her great Mirror Lake photo) and the magic number Solvi is the winner of my special draw....(email me your details Solvi).....Thanks everyone for all your lovely comments..............I have found some great new blogs to visit.........and quite a few of you are still "no reply"

  5. The bag you made is beautiful. Strange to think everything is flowering there and it's starting to snow here. Lucky thing I like snow or I'd be really jealous. Lol.
