The Flemington Racecourse in Dec 2006

Here is Phar Lap whose monument is the centre piece at Flemington, the site of the famous Melbourne Cup that occurs every 1st Tuesday in November every year. The race that stops the nation, a national day in Melbourne!

Christmas Cheers and Trims

Gee, I didn't realise that I haven't posted here since early November!
It's after Christmas now and before we finally remove and store our christmas adornments, here are some of them in our home right now-

The christmas flower, the Pointsettia will always grace the buffet table. This is not real!

Ray and David's bar portrait is not spared from tinsels.
The coffee table has a santa that turns around with a wind-up musical song. Some of the christmas cards we received are on the table that holds the TV
My favourite stockings- empty inside though.
Christmas lillies (these are real -courtesy of Woolworths) is a feature of the dining table.
This silk wreath had been with us since 1992!.
