Towards the End of November 2014

22 Nov




Summer has arrived here in Australia. There are Australian grown apricots, peaches and cherries, meaning Christmas can’t be far away anymore.

Today we bought a DIGITAL KETTLE with Temperature Control! It says: Set the ideal temperature for the perfect brew at the touch of a button. It also has a ‘keep warm function’. There are five different temperature settings!

At David Jones in Sydney we saw this decoration for Christmas.

There were also some window decorations at David Jones.




We had a look inside what sort of sweets were available for Christmas.

Later on we went to the Queen Victoria Building and discovered a shop with elaborate train sets that we could see through the window.


This bear welcomed us at the ABC shop where we bought a few Christmas gifts.


Next door was a shop that had lots of aboriginal artifacts for sale. This picture did hang in the window.

    Great pics Uta, Christmas is certainly in the shops these days, and with music.
    Love the train set picture, if you ever get to Healesville Victoria, they have a beautiful Christmas decoration of an Alpine village, all done in snow.
    The Christmas decorations and toys really brighten up the eyes of the little ones.

      Thanks for commenting, Ian. Sunday is nearly gone now. We have been lucky today for we did not get these extremely high temperatures that they had in the western suburbs of Sydney. In some areas they had up to 45C!
      Cheers ­čÖé

      Hallo, liebe Gislinde. Ja, dem Alter entsprechend geht es mir gut. Wir haben nun schon richtig warmes Sommerwetter. In den Gesch├Ąften weihnachtet es bereits. Wir werden zu Weihnachten nach Melbourne fahren. Ich w├╝nsche dir, liebe Gislinde ein paar recht sch├Âne Tage an der Ahr. Liebe Gr├╝sse aus Australien! Uta ­čÖé

    The aboriginal picture is quite intriguing… The nutcracker, of course, has a long and distinguished history. Thanks for posting such interesting items!

      Thanks for commenting, Robert. Aboriginal art I find quite fascinating. And the nutcracker reminds me about Christmas when I was a child.
