|These three have all been gifts from various fabulous people in my life! This gorgeous dove was a gift from my brother and sisinlaw when they came to visit [OMG] was it 3 years ago? It was purchased at The Rocks, one of my favourite markets. They have very cool stuff there and one of the stalls was a whole lot of these tin decorations.
The kids came on holiday too, and it started off my girly dates with my niece. The first was a totally girly sleepover at aunty Dee’s apartment. DVD, popcorn and chocolate, nail varnish and staying up late…
The second was going out, just the two of us, for coffee at a cafe.. The coolest part was picking her up from school and not being able to find her after the bell rang because she was busy telling her teacher all about her Auntie Dee and the girly coffee…
The third was a sleepover at her house, I slept in the bottom bunk and woke up to two little eyes peering over the top to see if I was awake yet… Too precious for words.
This one was a gift from Kirk and Jack her motherinlaw a year or two back. It’s a handmade one and it weighs a ton!! All the weight of the pins and beads and sequins.
Kirk’s my best mate. We met at performing arts college and hit it off straight way. Something about the same nationality… Her son is my godson and her husband is a good mate as well!! I think it’s pretty funny that my best friend in Australia is a Kiwi… But I wouldn’t trade her for quids.

Mum gave me this one, it hearks back to my teenage years when I was fairly massively into rainbows. I had a rainbow bag, rainbow earrings and a rainbow doona cover… among other things.
I still have the doona cover but the rest of the stuff was, well, pretty naff… and I’m pretty much over the rainbow thing … because, I’m more of a grown up.
(At least most of the time…)
Dee, I’ve loved your Christmas Decoration series. The girly nights sound wonderful. I wish my Goddaughters lived near enough for me to do that with them, though I somehow don’t think I’d get much sleep!
I missed wishing you a Merry Christmas but can definitely send you a wish and a prayer for a wonderful New Year.
