  6. Ok, I have to ask….. are you and Yvonne at Stonegable related? Your posts are so similar. Both beautiful and enjoyable! Thanks for your great ideas and sharing the lovely printables!!

      Hi Cathy…no we are not related, but we are very good friends! We’ve known each other for years and do have similar styles. Her home is more open and lighter…and I agree, it’s beautiful!

  7. Australians often do Christmas in July for the simple reason it is our coldest month. In some parts it is jolly cold, the skies are grey and fireplaces lit and for those of us in the tropics what better time to roast a ham or turkey than winter.
