Little Roadtrip and Days 4 & 5

For all my lovely overseas friends I thought you might like to see some photos of our beautiful Queensland coastline. Yesterday I went on a bit of a little roadtrip to visit my bestie Ann who lives up at the Sunshine coast for Christmas hugs and to check on how she was doing after recent surgery. I also snaveled some piccies of Ann's decorating (lots of piccies folks). Thought you might be a bit bored with mine.
First I swung by Coolum beautiful!
This is specially for those of you who are a little bit chilly right now to warm your thoughts..
Glorious white sand and the headland too!
This lovely lady (preparing me a delicious lunch)
in my opinion (we differ here)is absolutely to blame  for getting me so totally hooked on all things Christmassy many years ago. She says it was the other way around! Want to see a liitle bit? Gorgeous tree...
Oh wait! Then there is the 'handmade' of my favourites!
Ann is very widely travelled (hence my lovely collection of overseas ornies) so has some exquisite pieces..
Who doesn't love Santa helping with the baking?
Now this tree, if I could have got out of the house and away with it I would have  lol!
A beautiful wire tree.
The tree and all the gorgeous cross stitched ornaments are gifts from another friend and severe Christmasaholic Sherri!
I Love the entry display above. There was much much more....
So nice to sit and remember outings had together where treasures were bought, oohed and ahhed over and times when we made treasures together....I had the best day. Sometimes you really are blessed and the day Ann and I became friends is was one. I hope you enjoyed my little road trip and are still with me....
Because I am continuing to be spoilt by gorgeous Keryn....
Yesterday this little fellow came to stay...
He knew exactly where he wanted to spend Christmas and I could not argue with his thinking!
this morning this adorable little person popped out of here..
Too cute for words....
These little fellows are handmade by Keryn. I feel so lucky to have some of her beautiful Christmas folk at my house now. Thank you xxx
Ok I now go and leave you in peace,
Have a great day all
You know "it is not the presents you receive during the festive season but whose presence you share it with"
Namaste and Blesssings,
