Christmas in July...


Mr FF thinks that I have lost the plot as all he hears at present is the word "Christmas".....

I am currently sourcing for Christmas 2010, hence there are Christmas catalogues all over our dining room table.

I have tried telling him that it is common in New Zealand and Australia to celebrate Christmas twice, once in mid-winter and again in December but it is all a bit foreign to him being an Englishman living in France. He is still a bit wary of us antipodeans.....

So if anyone is looking for decorations, you know where to come. I have some fabulous Petit Coterie stockings and lots of other goodies in the Fabulously French Christmas section.

Now where was I? I remember, looking for fabulous angels to go on the top of the Christmas tree.....

A tres bientot,

  5. Yes, I totally understand, I've been "doing Christmas" for a few months now, to the dismay of Mr. FgH...since it's been all about the holidays lately. Next month, a full on Holiday Photo Shoot for a magazine. Oh, how he'll mutter about that! :) Have fun!

  7. I can't think about Christmas just yet. I'm just starting to enjoy the hot weather we're having and hoping it's not going to end just yet.
    I definitely know where to come though for Christmas goodies.

  10. ANY excuse to look at Christmas decorations is a good one in my book - and to celebrate it twice? - well that's just my idea of heaven!

  13. I will definitely be having a look. I have a small obsession with Christmas! Thank you for your lovely comment about grandmothers. I'm so sorry to hear that yours is not well. It must be awful being so far away. I hope she feels better soon.. Enjoy your Christmas in July..Rachaelxx

  14. I am with your husband on this one "Lost the Plot" and about celebrating christmas twice not sure on that one.... but then I do live in the UK. Why is it foreign to your husband, how many other places celebrate twice?

  16. Bonjour Leeann,

    We have often had a Midwinter Christmas Party/dinner... I think, because it makes a change in the dark and cold of winter.
    I will go and take a peek at your decorations.
    Not long now until Christmas- Eek!

    Hugs

  17. When I first heard about this idea I thought it was rather strange as an English girl in Oz but you know what - this year I think I am going to embrace it and cook a Turkey dinner! The weather in Melbourne is right too!! Love the little cute pails decoration. x

  22. Hi - thank you so much for your very kind comments over at my place on the web - what a fabulous life you have in France... do you get pangs for home? I love your Christmas advent pots and yes tell your husband we are having 'Christmas in July' dinner at a friend's next weekend. I spent long enough in the UK to know that antipodeans are a very odd bunch! I look forward to enjoying your posts and I'll try and give you a little taste of home! Ann x

  25. Thinking of Christmas at any time is a good thing. How tremendous to sit and scour through the catalogs. A girls dream!

    Cheers ~

  26. One of the best things about being an Aussie or New Zealander is the opportunity to celebrate Christmas twice. Once in December at the beach and a traditional winter one in July.

  27. Oh YES!

    I'm in New Zealand and we were invited to a magical MID WINTER CHRISTMAS DINNER last weekend.

    We had all the Christmas food and some!

    Must have a look in the shoppe as I usually buy one fabulous new decoration each year!

  28. Christmas twice a year?!? How lucky. If only Starbucks had their peppermint mocha in July, too. :)
