Celebrations and being spoilt :)


Celebrations: Christmas Eve and the tables were all ready for our big family get-together.
Being Spoilt: my lovely gorgeous Mr bought me this beautiful painting for Christmas...


 It's by Brisbane artist Linda Zucco. He knew I'd love it. Those lovely little girls under the Hills Hoist remind me of my sister and I in our school uniforms :)


We already have another piece by Linda Zucco in our main room where we look at it every day...


It's called "The Lovers". A darling couple still together and happy after many years... 


Hope you've all had wonderful celebrations and plenty of spoiling too :)

Oh i love the art!! That is quite the family table seating situation going on there!! We have massive families too, but this year, stayed home alone, it was so peaceful & relaxing. I think every 3rd year we might do it, take a break!! Love Posie

The paintings are gorgeous! What a special gift from your husband! Was it a surprise?

Your house looks lovely. I don't think we'd be able to fit as many in at our house, nor have as many chairs!

Enjoy your spoiling and your holidays Kylie. You deserve every moment! :)

PS. Thank you again. The shirt is gorgeous and Cohen looked a right little man in it.

Thanks so much sending me this link...and for the post, Kylie!
I hadn't seen it before, I hadn't starting following at that time. Sally Cox told me about your blog more recently.
The two little girls are my sister and I before school one morning(St Joey's in Nambour). You look a little like my big sister, Gianna.
That gorgeous older couple are friends of my mum back in the old country, in Lombardia, Italy. They are standing in their lovely courtyard garden.
