Christmas in July!





You can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon the Alpine Winter Festival that's being held during the winter months in Melbourne & Sydney. This festival combines an outdoor skating rink, a custom-built alpine ski lodge featuring open fires & serving winter delicacies from around the world, European live music, an alpine food market selling gluvog, punch & hot chocolate plus a St Morritz Bar serving 'alpine-inspired' cocktails! Heaven!

Christmas Biscuits





Melbournian Vicki Davis bakes some of the most amazing decorative biscuits I've ever seen. You'll often find her beautiful designs at cafes & food-stores across Australia. The biscuits featured here were part of her 2008 cafe range. Happily, I can report that her sweet treats do indeed taste as good as they look!

It's a Cath Kidston Christmas!




I stumbled upon this great UK blog entry the other day from 'Vintage Amethyst' which showed the beautiful Cath Kidston store in York all dressed up for Christmas 2008. Cath Kidson is a divine UK brand that sells a gorgeous selection of wares all fashioned from their distinctive & unmissable fabric range. Some of the range is thankfully now available through the 'Lark' store here in Daylesford, Melbourne, Australia.
