Stills: A Weekly Collection {it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas}



1. That right there would be my family of origin. What a bunch.

2. Christmas party frock from Country Road and Mythology Bag from Bohemian Traders

3. The view from our hotel room.

4. Our constant companion.

5. Simple table dressing for Dave's family Christmas (more on that later)

6. My awesome brother and his beautiful wife have taken off on a sojourn around our sunburnt country. They've loaded up the truck, packed the dog and hit the road. If you see that handsome face on the road, give him (and his lovely Nel) a MASSSSIVE hug from me (okay, you can kiss 'em if you like).

7. Dave raised a pig, butchered it and bought it to our Christmas table. I've overwhelmingly proud of him.

I can't wait to see what your week looks like!

  5. I want to eat that meat in the last photo...............I'm proud of him too..........how yum does it look. Merry Christmas to you and all your family and I hope Santa comes to everyone in your family. Thanks for hosting the Weekly Stills, I came on board later in the year and enjoyed doing the weekly round up. Should put those in a little photo book would be a great idea. Just something else to add to my ever growing list I think. Take Care. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia
