Cinderella in Bali?

Wow! Where am I?
Am I still in Bali?

Yes !

It's a shop called Dinda Rella
and its just magical!

Come with me for a visit

There's french style furniture

Beautiful stools, flowers and lights
as well as the exquisite dresses

The colours of the rainbow

And oh the bags!
So gorgeous

Hows this divine change room?

And it seems they cater for brides

Definitely worth a visit.

Xmas Trees in Bali

People in Bali definitely know how
to do Xmas trees for us to enjoy!
This one at Cocoon has my fave colours
pink and blue

A real treat!

Shop windows are delightful

I had to buy these decorations

But only in silver

Such clever ways of making trees!

Especially at Ku De Ta

Whether waiting for sunset

Or afterwards

Ah yes
Some lovely magic!
Which we brought home in our hearts
to celebrate with our family.
Merry Xmas Everyone!

Xmas Time in Bali

Even though I'm nowhere near snow
you can still find a "White Xmas"
in Bali

And purple is very popular also

With distinctive french touches

Loved this wall of shutters

Would loved to have indulged in this one
but my waist line just wont allow

There are many cute bags
and I bought a lovely white one yesterday
( photos maybe to follow if I dont shoot my husbands computer!)

But last night was divine

This amazing Beach Club "Cocoon"

But my photos dont do it justice.
I'll have to try again in the day time.
Hope to be back again soon
if computers dont let me down again.

Dreaming of a White Xmas

Domayne, the store, has done
the most beautiful catalogue
"Dreaming of a White Xmas".
I just need to get some brown paper
to mix with fresh whites
And keep my tree simple with only
white and silver

I love the balloons floating on the floor

These tags are so pretty
Im going to attatch baubles
and angel wings
Maybe the smidge of red

This yummy dessert came from
Austalian House and Garden

Id like to serve these as a starter

Some of my new decorations
for my own White Xmas
I just love it on the frothy tuille

So this is a preview of my table
for Xmas day
with a few more tweaks!

A Little Red at Xmas

I don't normally do red
but it really is so French
So this year I'm going to try adding red
I love the use of ribbons

And snowflakes

And I really want to do this!
So clever just using a frame and string.
Just got to find my frame
(somewhere in the garage)

Bridal Shower for Vanessa

Tiffany Blue
with white and silver
cream and gold
That's what I wanted to do
for the theme
for the bridal shower
of my beautiful friend

To me
Vanessa is one of the most beautiful people
in the world
And I really wanted to honour her

Handmade card
from another adorable friend

Some gorgeous gifts

I loved this beautiful green

My blue and white with gold china

And a lovely afternoon tea

Beautiful people
On a beautiful afternoon
To honour a truly special person
Who deserves much happiness
Which she spreads where-ever she goes
We love you Vanessa!
