The baking is done, the presents are wrapped, mince pies and a stocking await Santa, and Carols by Candlelight is finishing on the telly. I just need to do a quick tidy, pack for my parents place and set the breakfast table! It has been a busy festive season. Today has been busy, and Sylvia has been sick so I am glad to be almost ready for the big day. And I am looking forward to some rest after Christmas Day. Before I finish up, I have some Christmas photos to share, mostly from out and about in Melbourne.
Coburg Night Market on a good night! (Pita This / Pita That)
Coburg Night Market valiantly soldiering on during a rainy night.
Some wonderful Remaki Christmas decorations on our tree (paper angel and what Sylvia calls the "red onion").
Christmas tree and decorations in Federation Square.
Christmas tree in Fed Square looking towards Flinders Street Station.
The Gingerbread Village. Much better this year in a new venue in Fed Square with more room. Here kids line up for Santa.
Brighton Beach beach houses. Love all the details.
Flinders Street Station, made our of gingerbread (see the real thing above).
Dinner on visit to Fed Square and City was Lord of the Fries. Dessert was Ben and Jerry's ice cream. (Sylvia and E had Krispy Kreme special Christmas doughnuts.)
Love the display on the Made in Melbourne shop. (Again we see the iconic Flinders Street Station.)
Myer Christmas windows. An arty Alice in Wonderland. Santa at Myer too busy to see Sylvia. Next year we try David Jones.
Lovely summery decorations in the city. I visited two days before I went on holidays for a month. Was so nice to take proper lunch bread but too many people for comfort.
Loved the Christmas yarn bombing in the city.
Loved these native Christmas wreaths at the farmers market while catching up with a friend on Saturday.
Caught up with other friends later on Saturday. Had fun visiting Melbourne Museum and checking out the history of the Myer Christmas Windows.
Finally here is part of sylvia's Christmas display in her bedroom.
Now I am off to put the finishing touches on the house. I hope you have a very happy Christmas, Festivus, holiday etc. I will be back in a few days with a few more Christmas posts.
