Happy Bday Mya.....!!

Yesterday on my way to lunch at Matilda Bay, I passed Eliza (Eliza), a great link this one.. She is regularly dressed up by mysterious 'fashionistas' in the dead of the night for whatever significant event is happening at the time! The last time I showed you Eliza was just after Cadel Evans had won the Tour de France earlier in the year and she was victoriously holding aloft a bicycle! This time she is 'styled' for Christmas in a glamorous red frock, fur stole (bit hot for that), tinsel and a Santa hat..and oh yes there's a bit of a clue there methinks... wonder if Mya might have an idea who the culprits are.....!! In the picture below you can see The Royal Perth yacht Club in the background.... Only a couple of days left till Christmas, hope you're all better organized than moi.....!!

  13. What I like about this 'activity' is that there does not seem to be any attempt by council to shut it down. No signs etc. Is that true?

  14. Seems like a nice and fun idea, and they do not damage the statue!

  15. Interesting post, and thanks also for the links.
    I am working "half day" when we celebrate Christmas later in the day.
    Very relaxed with us.
    Christmas cards and letters, done as "snail mail" will not get to friends and family in time..... Next year we just HAVE TO start a bit earlier!?
    ( Yes, I have said that before....:)

    GOD JUL / MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  16. Voilà une photo bien insolite, comme je les aime. Ici, il fait froid, Gracie, et chacun se hâte à faire les derniers préparatifs.
    Je te souhaite un très joyeux Noël pour toi et tous ceux que tu aimes!

  17. I like that! The statue belongs to everyone, people make it alive, and participating to local life when they change its 'dressing". That's funny and fresh!
    (I'm ready! this year , for once , I was very organized!)
