Advent: 23rd December

I have two advent entries for the last day, since I managed to miss my first day completely (pretty bad for the Advent organiser, eh?). Anyway, I figured I had better not mess up this second date I assigned myself, especially as it's the last day before the much bigger and bolder Swap of Joy posts start to pop up!

So here is my first post: for your delectation, a bunch of summer Christmas icons which epitomise how Christmas feels for those of us living in the Southern Hemisphere!





I hope you enjoy these, though I know the quality varies a bit! ;-)

Thank You!

Hi, everyone! Happy Holidays! I just wanted to say thank you all for all the prompts and encouragement you guys have given me this month.  I can't believe I only have 7 days left of my rare pair trope a day Merry Trope-mas challenge, and even more than that, that I've actually managed to write something EVERY DAY. I've never managed that before and I owe a lot of that motivation to all of you.  I've tried out a lot of new pairs thanks to all your suggestions too and found that I really like some of them. So thank you all! Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday weekend full of health, love, and happiness (and tolerable weather lol).
