Well I can't believe how close Christmas is and how little I have done.
The tree is up and a few present under it but anything beyond this is just not happening yet!
Today a small group of about 20 ladies from our sewing group descended upon our friend Dee's house for Christmas lunch.
Dee is one of these wonderful people who decorates her home and invites groups in to enjoy her Christmas fare, hospitality and wonderful food. The money she raises from these luncheons is donated to local charities, here on the Central Coast.
As you enter the little front gate into the secluded front garden decorations are already grabbing the eye......but wait until you get inside! The local Christmas shop has nothing on Dee's collection of Chrissy Decorations...they are everywhere.
With the help of 3 friends it takes them 3 days to decorate. Furniture, paintings and personal items are all put away to make room for this very special time of the year.
And here is Dee herself, always smiling.
And on a day like today with the weather just perfect this view from where we enjoyed our luch was just relaxing.
Just some of the lucky guests.
Thanks again Dee for sharing your home with us for Christmas.
