I'm home again after a shopping trip with one of my oldest friends to Melbourne last week.
We had a blast and had lots of fun looking at all of the gorgeous christmas displays in the windows of stores within the city - They were just amazing and very hard to photograph !
The Myer windows were just gorgeous and people were lined up for miles to see them. Can you see the little patchwork coats on the lambs? And the little frog in the snow? His arms and legs moved backwards and forwards - so very cute.
And here is the talking Santa - He was a huge hit with the little ones who were gazing at him with their mouths opened.
And there were lots of stores selling gorgeous christmas decorarions.
We spent some time at the Lindt shop at Chadstone Shopping Centre and treated ourselves to a Lindt Chocolate Fudge Iced Chocolate - It was divine !
And on our last day we teased ourselves with a trip to IKEA. We had a little room left in our suit cases but that soon disappeared after we had to squeeze our IKEA purchases inside. I fell in love with this book shelf and display cabinet which is just what I want for our family room make over next year - I hope I can find something similar locally.
I am starting to catch up on things around the shack now - Being away for 4 days really threw a spanner in the works but was a much needed break.
Today I posted off my advent swap parcels and have just a few more gifts to make and then I am done for this year's silly season.
How are you going? Are you starting to panic yet?
