They finished at midday today and we spent most of the afternoon decorating the Christmas tree.
We waited for two-year old Son # 3 to be asleep though. It was peaceful and there was more goodwill to all men, if you know what I'm saying.

|The tree has moved to the sunroom. It will probably have to be shifted when Mr Rooney fits the new windows.|
|The wooden decoration is from Eastern Europe - a gift from Jason's Mum.|
I also have an iittala Festivo two ring candleholder to give away to one of my lovely readers.
The candleholders were originally designed in 1966 by Timo Sarpaneva in Finland and are a lovely piece of mid-century glass design.

This one is a spare which I picked up via a seller in Bongaree on Bribie Island.
From Finland to Bongaree to Brisbane to who knows where next...?
To win this magnificent piece of Finnish glass, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post to go into a random draw. It's that simple.
I will mail it anywhere in the world. You don't even have to follow me, but it would be nice if you did...
Anyway, I will draw the winner's name on Monday 6 December 2010 7pm Queensland time.
Oh and don't forget to enter my sponsored Ferrero Rocher Christmas giveaway here. There are some very clever responses so far.
