AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

The older they are, the more beloved they become--especially when graced with delicate shadows. Merry Christmas!

The plaid ribbon is a quiet and humble part of this decoration, yet it adds a perfect Christmas touch to this simple decoration. It is a wonderful touch to a home full of love. Happy Christmas to you and yours!
