While searching for the ideas for my backyard I came across the web page of Ludo Dierckx from Belgium. His work is just amazing!

After the "Brisbane Cyclone" our garden furniture was totally destroyed. Glass ! broken, one chair not found, yet.
We love outdoor eating so much here in Australia and I have to make the decision very soon. Its already late. I want something heavy, sturdy, nice. My preference for a now goes to a stone table with iron chairs ( carvers maybe synthetic wicker?). Any suggestions?

Christmas Traditions

11 days to Christmas .. I managed 'first stage' of baking, finally! Hurrah. Cooking and baking in my culture is a big part of Christmas celebration. Its much harder to concentrate and be focused here in Australia. So hot, sunny and more hot. Today was 34 degrees C and it would be much better on the beach. But because I am a very traditional girl I stayed in the kitchen and baked and baked and baked... house smells heavenly!

...not this traditional .
