O Christmas Tree....& other stories
This is a Christmas Bilby! One of the many tree decorations that I've been sent over the years from Australia. I always admire those trees that are decorated elegantly & stylishly...little white lights, bows, co-ordinating baubles...but I could never, ever have one myself! I love the chaos and colour of an 'everything but the kitchen sink tree'!
Christmas trees seem to be a little like sunsets - photographs never quite do justice to their beauty! But I'll try...
A few days ago, I went with a friend to help to choose her wedding dress. Of course, it's all a big surprise so I can't post any details. But it was the first time I've ever been in a real wedding dress shop! Both my own dresses were bought 'off the peg', so I never had a reason to. I must admit, that there's something magical about these places! I defy any woman not to feel a little bit fairytale when surrounded by hundreds of gorgeous princess dresses in tulle, satin & net. I was desperate to try one on...it reminded me of the episode of 'Friends' when the three girls sit around their apartment dressed as brides because it makes them feel so beautiful! I didn't actually try one on...but I was a little bit starry eyed all the same!
