At Christmas all roads lead home.

Hello and Thank You, Blogging friends, who make and create such amazing things and make this a place where I find inspiration by putting your treasures and creations on display. It certainly is a place of interest on here.
 A new addition to my Christmas decorations are 2 fabric Christmas trees.

 

 Japanese folded fabric Christmas tree. Just Google those 5 words and a tutorial on the blog makedoandgem.blogspot.com will be there.

Christmas in Australia is not like anywhere else. Celebrated December 25th in mid summer when temperatures can be up to 35C or more.
Some Australians have Christmas dinner on a local beach or at home by the pool and playing cricket in the back yard enjoying outdoor activities.
I just love the build up to Christmas with homes decorated with Christmas lighting.These 2 houses are just a few streets away.

 
We took our grandson Korbyn to see the lights an he is in the right hand bottom corner.
 

House no. 2.

Lit up like fairy land. In the first house I do not know how the people made it to the top of  those palm trees with the lights.They were so tall.
I have some lights inside my home and a few out the front of the house.






 Outside Lights.
Unfortunately I am not a very good photographer and don't know how to set the camera for lighting shots but you may be able to get the idea a little.

I Wish to you all a Very Happy and Safe  Christmas .


It is a real  pleasure to have you as friends on here and your comments and support is very much appreciated and I look foreward to these friendships in 2013.
Happy Christmas,   Jen x

Your house and decorations look lovely Jen and I just love your new tree decorations. Have a safe and joyful Christmas.

Lovely pictures! I have never seen a palm tree decorated like that one!
Years ago I made a pillow with an appliqued tree on the front. There were openings for Cathedral Window ornaments. Your beautiful quilted trees reminded me of that. Have no idea what happened to it, though!
