Have you missed me ? Hubby and I have been away on holidays for two weeks.
We started our holiday with an overnight stay in Sydney.
It was the perfect time to be in Sydney, as the shops were decorated with gorgeous Christmas lights.
Here are some of my favourite shots.
A bridal carriage.
The beautiful Queen Victoria Building, which was designed by George McRae and completed in 1898.
” Built as a monument to the long reigning monarch, construction took place in dire times, as Sydney was in a severe recession.
The elaborate Romanesque architecture was specially planned for the grand building so the Government could employ
many out-of-work craftsmen – stonemasons, plasterers, and stained window artists – in a worthwhile project. – “

Today it is home to many beautiful retail stores and the ornate features of the building have been retained.
A great way to transform a dressmakers dummy into a gorgeous Christmas tree.
The beautifully ornate Strand Arcade.
A gorgeous place to shop.
The view of the State Theatre from 11 floors up on an adjacent building.
It opened in 1929 and was designed to be a “Palace of Dreams”.
From this angle it has a fairytale appearance.
I was almost expecting to see Rapunzel to appear.
In my next post, I will reveal where we went on holidays.
So stay tuned in.
