one week to Christmas

Image from Australian Country Style, December 2010 page 130
I fell in love with these apothecary bottles...how great do they look together like this? At this time of year one week from Christmas I found this image from one of my favourite magazines, Country Style most appropriate. Each vintage bottle is labelled with the instructions to revive, unwind and relax. And sometimes when we are so busy we have to remind ourselves to do just that, even if it is just for a few minutes (longer is better of course). For some it could be to get out in the garden to water some plants or sit in that seagrass chair under the veranda. And most importantly to treasure the time we have with family and friends. I hope that everyone has a lovely lead up to Christmas!


  1. Hi Tammy,

    Thank you for leaving me the lovely comment on the previous post. I will keep it in mind for when we do venture to Richmond again. From memory the last time I was in Richmond the Town & Country shop was closed and I ended up looking/drooling through the windows!!

    I hope you have a fabulous lead up to Christmas this week. It's getting exciting, isn't it!!?!!!! And you also find, if only a little time to relax, unwind and revive.

    Enjoy your Monday.
    Take care
