Christmas Day in Pictures

Ah Christmas Day… you always go so fast… here is what we got up to…

Timothy O and I opened presents in the morning while listening to vinyls…

We made crowns for ourselves and family for the Christmas table from leather hides…

I threw a few more decorations about the house…

Timothy O and I made a rosemary chandelier for above the Christmas table… I love a fragrant table… **note new clean overalls!

Made sure there were hundreds of cloves scattered all throughout the table… I love the heady fragrance of cloves and rosemary….

This cheeky chicken Gigi decided to come upstairs to see what was happening….

And then Coco did too… (she doesn’t like to miss out…)

Our table on the deck with Timothy O working hard in the background preparing the ham… he loves doing the ham

Olive branches, walnuts, webbing, linen and feathers….

The wood fire oven roaring awaiting Timothy O’s ham…

Ta dah….Timothy O’s burnt honey, orange and clove glazed ham resting…

Proud as Punch….

Roast chicken and puy lentils… (we make this dish often and is a firm household favourite…) We had all free range meats for Christmas and they all came from farmers at the Jan Powers Farmer Market (our market) ….. this free range chicken was from Lynsay at Viande at .. we buy it every market…

… And the ham was from Tillari Trotters … again certified free range.

Christmas lunch on the deck…

Then the sun slowly went down and we listened to golden classics from the 60’s and 70’s… while making eggnog and eating pavlova…

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Weekend in Pictures – Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas … actually it’s barely Christmas at all…. 5.45am….last minute wrapping to do …  thought I would quickly share a few images of what has been happening around here…

I shot a little ‘countdown’ on instagram around the house leading up to Christmas…

Christmas Eve was spent eating and cooking in the kitchen…

… Timothy O picked up a couple of new vinyls including this one… what’s Christmas without Serge….

…While out shopping for vinyls and secret Christmas gifts I assume Timothy O picked up some beautiful flowers for Christmas Day from our lovely florist Hacienda….

…. We then started celebrating a little too early…

… Picked out the prettiest plates for the table…

… Then decorated the table….

… More to come later. Hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with love and happiness.

Market Tomorrow – Last one for the year

 I know this weekend will be a busy one with Christmas shopping, though what I have been telling my friends and family is to come by the Powerhouse market early; that way it is cooler and you will get a park…. do a special food shop there – so fresh and it feels good to support a farmer… pick up some fancy posh treats too ….and then come and see us!

Here is a little ‘advent calander’ countdown I’m doing around the house on instagram…. Four days to go….
