Moon Over Venice [& Atrani]

 'Moon Over Venice'

Appeasing The Blog Gods

You might forgive me for being so busy with xmas preparations that I forgot my moon post.. But in fact I haven't even started xmas planning yet.. [ooops]... This last week has been hectic with unexpected bits and pieces that have kept me away from blogging.. so apologies for the late moon post and lack of visits and I hope that Venice will make up for the tardiness

This time last year I wouldn't have thought I would get back to Venice in 2011.. But that I did.. It is still the most beautiful place in the world.. and still the place where one's dreams can merge with reality. 

This month's moon over Sydney was lost to rain clouds.. So I pulled out an old favourite here.. dressed her in moonlight.. and popped her up on the mantle for you! And to appease the blog gods.. I sent that moon over to Atrani and gave her a Aussie beach xmas theme.. Covering all my bases in one post to make up for lost time!

 'Moon Over Atrani'

So Make A Wish.. 
.. Dream Big .. 
And bring some of that wishing into your reality..

Have A Lovely Weekend Folks

Moon Notes:

Get cracking, missy. I doubt I need to remind you, but it is 17 Dec (almost 18th for you:)...

You don't need to do a lot...but you'll be sad if no little Christmas plant, a few decorations...

With such imaginative, creative offerings as appeasements, I for one could forgive all of your trespasses.
