In the depths of a southern hemisphere winter there is a new
tradition that has emerged recently...
Winter in July
Now it is not really my thing as I am still getting over all the hoo-ha of Christmas decorating that I indulge in for the real thing in December.
I couldn't possibly put my family through it all again twice a year.
In fact I only just took down my 'Joy' Christmas lights that were still hanging on the outdoor deck fence!
Thought they better have a bit of a rest under the house, out of the rain for a few months.
They have to come out again in November,
and thats only 3 months away,
So no, I am not one for getting into the Christmas spirit on July 25th.
At this time of year, I'm quite happy sitting in front of the fire with my uggies on, with a quiet glass ( or two) of red, my block of Snack choccy, the footy on, and indulging in the latest Inside Out or Real Living.
But plenty of people are, as I am finding out.
A great friend has an old family tradition of having a big
extended family get together.
They dont see them all at Christmas in December,
so July is their catch up time.
With so many people, it probably makes sense to do this
at a less busy time of year.
Another Daneve from Ah Tissue has just posted some photos from her recent Christmas in July.
All very civilised & lovely - no silly paper hats and lame jokes there.
By the way...I love her tissue pom poms!
I could make some space for some of them in the 10 boxes of Christmas decorations I have under the house...yes at least 10 boxes...eeek!
If you are so inclined...
we have some cute cupcake wrappers that would be perfect for
Christmas cupcakes or mini plum puddings?

We are giving away 5 packs of our new red Christmas Noel cupcake wrappers.
They are so new I dont even have a picture of them!
But I can tell you they are really cute.
Especially when mixed with our red & green Santa, spot, stripe or star.
Or even our red Lovebirds look like 2 partridges in a pear tree - perfect for Christmas too!
We will use Mr.Random to select 5 random winners from all the comments.
