A Magical Christmas

The magic of Christmas is

always more joyous through

the eyes of children.

Their excitement and

anticipation of all that

Christmas brings is

beautiful to see. 

On last weeks trip

to Melbourne I was

fortunate enough to

witness this joy first hand.

The Myer Christmas windows

are a family tradition for many 

over several generations.

This years theme was

Santa Claus and the 

Three Bears.

The look on all

the childrens faces

surely bought a 

smile to mine.

Dressed for gift giving,

in black and white

this year.

Wishing a very magical

Christmas to everyone


a safe and

Happy New Year.

Joining Christmas Share in Style.

with Sacramento and Rosie.

    What a beautiful and festive blouse!I've been thinking about children and Christmas a lot this year. My kids being grown and gone the joy of Christmas just hasn't been there like when they were young. I'm anxious for grandchildren!

      I agree Joni, Christmas is so different without small children to share it with. Good luck on the grandchildren front, I think mine will be a long time coming.All the best for the season, Joni.
