Countdown to Christmas
This is our outdoor entertaining area at the Villa. We have a lovely table and chairs to sit at, lots of plants in tubs & pots and plenty of shade, making it a lovely yin spot for hot summertime barbeques.
We have been purging a lot of old bits and pieces, springcleaning I suppose! Always a good feeling to clear the decks! We promised ourselves when we moved into the Villa that we wouldn't gather too much 'stuff' and have kept to this so far.
I read a post by Michell Chant recently on facebook, suggesting that we support small business and local people, markets etc for Christmas gifts, instead of the big players in retail. What a great idea! And who wouldn't love to avoid a Mall at Christmas time? I did this last year and hope to do the same again this year. Countdown to Christmas starts now!
