Holidays are here


The necklace shown here was made with some of the beautiful beads I received from Anne of Gardanne.  It was a good week for earrings sales this week, which means I have more bead money to play with over the break - excellent!


The day job finished for the year last Friday, so it is time to rest, play and get ready for a feast at our place on Christmas Day - it is summer here but we still have the big meal. I really love hosting Christmas lunch - this is year is a smaller group than usual with some family off celebrating in Denmark, others in New Zealand - it is wonderful to have family  together and for everyone just to relax.
Some planning and shopping for the feast is yet to be done, so I'm off to peruse the recipe book stash for some ideas for what to have with Aussie chef / cookbook guru  Bill Granger's baked ham, and mango salsa.

Not sure how your year has been ? Judging by the wishes over at Lorelei's blog it seems like a mixed bag for us all -  I wish for everyone to have a happier, healthier 2010.
