christmas {down under}

I am getting on a plane today, one of my least favorite things, and heading home to Chicago for the holidays. However, with the bitterly cold weather we have had lately I think I may just be able to bear the much longer flight down to Australia and enjoy a Christmas dinner under this gum tree. Rannuculas, birdcages and cherry blossoms...oh my!


(via country style)
Also, thank you all so much for your sweet comments yesterday about delight by design's mention in the London Times!

Hi, you must come down for a trip to Oz, the Christmas season is very different, but equally fantastic in the warm sun and under the gum trees. Some people may think that is a cliche, but we do spend our summer days in the shade of our trees, catching a few zzz's and trying to catch a little breeze! It's fun...
