^ Bianca circa 1993 and this year's makeshift Christmas tree - the button tree.

This is just a quick note to let you know about a post I did on Laura's blog, Make Do & Mend as part of her Christmas Around The World series. Admittedly, I am not a very Christmassy person, but I had a lot of fun writing it. I don't think there's a formula for a typically Australian Christmas but a very hot day, a big Summery feast and a family get together are pretty quintessential here. If you'd like to read about my Australian Christmases spy it here.

Ps. Promise to finally do a mail post tomorrow, k? :)
