|You Are a Minimal Christmas Tree|
You're not a total Scrooge, but you feel no need to go overboard at Christmas.
Less is more, and your Christmas reflects refined quality.

I have put the trees up a couple of days early because we are so busy over the weekend I would not have a chance to do it.
Tomorrow I have a stall at the North Epping Village Fair, selling my handbags. If you are in the area come and have a look and say hello.

|You Are a Plain Ole Cup of Joe|
But don't think plain - instead think, uncomplicated
You're a low maintenance kind of girl... who can hang with the guys
Down to earth, easy going, and fun! Yup, that's you: the friend everyone invites.
And your dependable too. Both for a laugh and a sympathetic ear.

This recipe is also a favourite to make and give away at Christmas time. The great thing about this recipe is that it can be make earlier than the tapenade I posted yesterday, as it keeps longer. This tomato chutney is yummy on pasta too. Click on the recipe to enlarge.

Something I like to do (if I am not completely swamped) in the last few days before Christmas is to make homemade food gifts for people. This is one of my favourites, and is completely delicious. We like to eat it with a strong tasting cheese, on crackers, with a glass of something bubbly of course. Click on the recipe to enlarge it.

I recently bought some beautiful, handmade pendants from 'the Lola Collection'. I won't show you exactly what I bought as they are Christmas gifts. Lola's pendants have fantastic images for old maps, stamps and illustrations. They are truly unique. You can visit her shop here.

Last night I went to see an amazing movie called 'Across the Universe'. Those of you that know me, know that I am not a musical fan. However, 3 of the last 4 movies I have seen have been this genre. 'Across the Universe' is a love story told with the aid of 34 Beatles' songs, mostly sung by the cast. It was thoroughly enjoyable - even worth buying the DVD when it is released.
There are cameo appearances by Bono as Dr. Robert (a counter-culture shaman), Eddie Izzard as Mr. Kite (a circus ringmaster), Joe Cocker as three street characters and Salma Hayek who appears (through digital special effects) as five nurses.
Evan Rachel Wood as Lucy Carrigan
Jim Sturgess as Jude Feeny
Joe Anderson as Max Carrigan
Dana Fuchs as Sadie
Martin Luther McCoy as JoJo
T.V. Carpio as Prudence

It was great to look at Pauline's art again and see what she is working on now, and the kids had a great time running wild outside and playing fuze ball indoors.
