Merry Christmas! My holiday (visual) diary...

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Tonic-ettes! Doesn't it always whoosh by so damn fast? Here's what's been going down in Tonic Town:
(above) Di made me this incredible Christmas wreath using things she "found on her walk"... I have never seen anything so beautiful. Thank you Di!

 (above) Renovation update! As I type, Mr Tonic is painting our new wall in front of the carport white. In keeping with the style of our house, built in 1957, we chose a shadow block feature. I think it looks like it's been there since 1957, don't you? Success!

 (above) Have I eaten my body weight in Caramel popcorn this past week? YES. Kernels at Miranda Fair. Go there.

(above) A new TT Salad in a new salad bowl (chrissie present from Ma & Pa Tonic) and new Georg Jensen salad servers (chrissie present from brother & sister-in-law).

(above) Another chrissie present from Ma & Pa Tonic - VERY excited to get stuck into the new Yotam Ottolenghi book, "Jerusalem" (click to buy). And if you don't have "Plenty" (click to buy) yet? You're doing it all wrong!

(above) Discovered some new tunes (how good is the Shazam App?!).

(above) How good is this "10 ways to good health" mug! If you live in the USA, click to buy at kkdiscount.com.

(above) New Mink Pink Shorts. Summer is here!

(above) Christmas lunch number one at Ma & Pa Tonic's.

(above) Christmas number two - a relaxing 5 days at "Ma & Pa Mr Tonic" (the in-laws).

(above) My Kate Moss Book arrived yesterday! Wowzers. If you're a Mossy fan, this one is number one with a bullet! Eight different covers, shipped out at random. Get yours at Shopbop here, Amazon here or Book Depository here.

(above) Table Tonic Avalon is open right through the holidays! I hope you all have a safe and super relaxing break!

    blog platform yοu're using? I'm planning to staгt my оwn blοg in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for somеthing unіque.
