The Christmas window display at the city Myer store 2 years ago. I fondly remember the store window displays not only of my childhood, but also those in the 1980s when my girls were little.
Talking of Myer...the next photo is a favourite. Taken in the Myer city store also, but way back in 1989. It's DD1 and DD2 visiting Santa there. 😊
And still on the subject of Myer...( overseas readers, Myer is a department store in Australia)
The next photo was taken in 2013 when DH and I braved the crowds to have a look at the Christmas Parade held each night for the few weeks before December 25. And it is sponsored by Myer! I took lots of photos from my vantage point standing on the ledge of a planter box in the Mall. My favourite parts of the parade were those animals...deer, camels and a donkey. 😍
The next photo is from Christmas Eve in 2011. I'd snapped some pics of DsD2's boyfriend ( now husband) checking out all the gifts under the tree...😉
Some handmade decorations I've made. The larger photo is the one I made for Anthea last year and the other two are a couple of prototypes for this year.
I do try to resist buying more Christmas decorations, but this year a new one 'came home with me' one Sunday. I had joined friends for a coffee in a shop that not only served coffee and tea but was within a local homewares store. I've named him Ronnie Reindeer.
The next one is a photo of a card I've kept for a few years. The lady who gave me the card was a knitting friend. For her 80th birthday I had made a small photo album with any photos taken at Knit and Natters, which featured Angela. She loved the gift and wrote some lovely comments on the card. Sadly Angela died this year after a cancer that had been treated successfully a number of years ago, returned. I will continue to treasure this card.
The last photo in this post is from 2013 and it was the Christmas party for the Sunday Stitchers. The beautiful tablerunner that I'm holding up, is what my Secret Santa Marilyn had made for me. I'm also holding up the needle keep that SS also made me.
So that's a few of the 16 photos I've posted so far this December.
