OFF TO THE HIGH COUNTRY...

Victoria's High Country...awesomely beautiful at any time of the year...
and right now it's blanketed in snow and J.B. and I are heading 
down there for a winter holiday.


Falls Creek Village, our home for a week

We Australians get very excited about snow down here...we follow the weather forecasts; we get in our cars and check out snow flurries in the ranges - and anywhere with some altitude in a cold snap; we convince ourselves that rain is sleet; we're exuberant when snow is still on the ground at lunch time...and we hope that when we've taken a big risk and paid a (big) deposit on an apartment at one of the Alpine resorts, we'll have ski in, ski out heaven. 

This year it's a cold, wet (and snowy) winter down south
The other day I received an email and photos of my mum from 
a friend of hers...Mum dressed with style and warmth, 
still fabulously aged at 91.

  
Leather and faux fur hat, still fabulous after 30 years

  
The Beaver coney coat is 70 years old...

 Music to ski to...

Blue skies by day...
Snow flakes by night...
Mountain air...
Holidays...
