is it too early for christmas

                            is it too early to start planning your Christmas present?....I think not !

                                      planning is the key to everything we to plan ~ plan to fail.

                                          and there will be a certain amount of saving to do....

                                                                    and selections to make....

                                               and perhaps even a holiday to plan for....

Happy Merry Christmas planning...Cate xox

I have just returned from the Melbourne Gift Fair. My mission was to source and purchase enough beautiful furniture and housewares for my 2 display homes. My mission was VERY,VERY successful and included these two very cute owls who decided to fly home with me..I had a hoot of a time!

now all I have to do is wait for all my boxes to arrive...hey !!!!
