Large Christmas Icons
A perfect example is what happened to us yesterday.
While out and about in Yarraville Village we came across these fabulous fellows - The 3 Wise Men, singing carols and generally entertaining all and sundry. They were gorgeous and how they walked all day in those shoes has me stumped.
He also had a song to sing and took requests from the kids. He also spent a long time finding out what they wanted for Christmas and making their faces light up.

Presents And Sunburn
This may be from the 50's but it is still very much what Australia is all about at Christmas, sun, surf, good friends and great food.
To those of you on the other side of the world, it may seem unlikely but Christmas day for us will be hot, and sunny with a BBQ lunch followed by sitting around under market umbrellas with a tall glass of something cold. Yay!!

Inspiring Women - Ms Rai
At the risk of gushing, I think Aishwarya is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I could gaze at her for hours.
Aishwarya was born in Mangalore, India in 1973. She completed a course in Architecture before winning the Miss World competition in 1994 with the highest EVER score!
She knocked back multiple film and commercial offers in favour of completing her degree, finally succumbing to Bollywood's pleas and becoming the biggest actress in India. Aishwarya has over 40 movies to her credit in four different languages. She is the highest paid actress in India and has multiple modelling contracts in both India and the West.
For a lovely introduction to Aishwarya's work (and slightly shorter than her 3 hour epics) see 'Bride and Prejudice' by Gurinder Chadha of 'Bend It Like Beckham' fame.

Let There Be Light
This is my favourite Christmas tree this year.
I know these are slightly 'wrong' but I secretly want them grazing in my front yard!

The Death of Homemade!!!
Below is an excerpt from 5 Minutes for Mom, (http://www.5minutesformom.com/5127/cpsia/), and a link to a petition. The CPSIA is a very real situation that will cause an unthinkable number of companies to cease business. Mine is one of those companies. I did the math, and in order to continue offering my current collection I would have to spend far beyond $52,000 in testing. Beyond this, it will destroy the creativity and uniqueness of our industry, forcing our children to be surrounded in mass produced factory products.Please do what you can to spread the word. Post to your blogs, send emails, write letters, and please take a few minutes to sign the petition.
I am a mother.
Warm Regards,Jesseca Bellemare

Tarry Turns 70!
It was a lovely day and it was so nice to see Mum surrounded by such wonderful friends. I think it is a testament to her and her enormous talent for friendship that such a wide and varied group of women celebrated her birthday with her. I hope by my 70th I still have such a fabulous circle of friends.

Funnest Night Ever -or- High School Musical Premiere
I can not even begin to tell you how much fun we had! In fact I get all smiley just thinking about it... This is the red carpet. Screaming fans, flash bulbs, screaming fans, etc etc. For a brief and shining moment I felt kind of famous.
On entering the theatre we scored the two front row seats, smack in the middle. Not so good for movie viewing you may be thinking, but Oh so good for star viewing!!!
Here are Ashley Tisdale (Sharpai) and Vanessa Hudgens (Gabriella) literally 4 foot from us. It was surreal.
The best was yet to come!!!
Within lunging distance stood THIS MAN....... The delicious Zac Efron (Troy, or Link if you are a Hairspray fan)
I really think my dear friend was concerned that I may try to make a grab for him! I took this photo without a zoom so you can see how close we were. Sigh!!!!
It was a fabulous, hilarious, night and to top it all off the movie was everything it should have been.
And for those of you who aren't sharing the Zac love - here are a few shots to give you an idea of why I was fairly pleased to be sharing the same air with him. Enjoy.
