Merry Christmas!

Good morning and a very Merry Christmas to everyone!


I'll be spending today with my wonderful boyfriend and lots of treasured friends. We've planned a barbeque and cocktails all over the place. Christmas is always a hectic time, trying to fit a million people and places into just 24 hours.


This post is a special collection of very old Disney Christmas Cards from the early 1950's. All images and relating captions were sourced from www.animationarchive.org who are avid supporters of the ASIFA-Hollywood-Animation-Archive, digitally archiving paper-copy animations.


Anyway... I hope you enjoy taking a gander at these old faithfuls as much as I did and that you have a wonderful Christmas day from whichever corner of the world you are reading from!

I adore this image. It's just so exotic.

Pretty in Pink; Ultra cute gift ideas

At Christmas I often get stuck for present idea's... not this year.

Check out this ultra cute Australian site - http://www.prettyinpink.com.au/

Whilst I would usually go for a handbag, I love the little purses. Here are a few of my favourite travel cases... they might be presents to myself rather than to friends and family.

Pencil Case
$19.95 AUD

Vanity Case
$19.95 AUD

Satchel Case
$34.95 AUD

What's wonderful is the amount of choice in terms of fabric. From the very vibrant to plain and polka dot, there really is something for everyone.

Shoe Lust; Cute new pumps!

I've just purchased a really cute pair of shoes from Williams Shoes... They're called the 'Entertain' evening heel by Corelli.. but they're like a tuxedo in a shoe.

Corelli 'Entertain' Shoe
$69AUD

I already own a similar pair in a cute-out design so I couldn't go past the classic peep-toe look.

First day of summer! Beach queens of yesteryear

Today, the 1st of December, is the first official day of summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Temperatures are reaching well above 35 degrees (celsius), winds are non-existant and the humidity is reaching 90% upwards.. perfect beach weather!

It's also the perfect time to take a gander at some beach and poolside queens of yesteryear..
