Have a squiz at Angela’s blog or 100 Layer Cake for even more magnificently festive photos.

This week was all hands on deck at Corner Store. 5000 handmade paper cones, a few deer friends, 1000 metres of twine and lots of tape later our Corner Store Christmas Windows are up! Our team wanted to create something bright, fresh & cheery to celebrate our Australian Christmas. Noël has two new friends and they need new names, any suggestions? Don’t forgot to give your loved ones an extra squeeze and enjoy this wonderful festive lead up. This season is a time to remember to be grateful, kind and thoughtful to others.
Love, everyone at Corner Store.

After coming across Olivia Locher’s photographic series “I fought the Law,” which playfully mocks outdated laws in the USA, I found myself off on a google tangent, exhuming the following daft yet humorous laws.
Here are my top 10:
1.No one may carry an ice cream cone in their back pocket.
2. It is illegal to paint sparrows to sell them as parakeets.
3. It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.
4. It is illegal to mispronounce the name of the state of Arkansas in that state; must be pronounced “Arkansaw”.
(Same should apply to “Austraya”)
5. You are not permitted to wear cowboy boots unless you already own at least two cows.
6. Persons classified as “ugly” may not walk down any street.
(unclear on the classifications)
7. It is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
8. In Florida failure to tell your neighbor his house is on fire is illegal.
9. Donkeys cannot be kept in bathtubs
10. It’s against the law to pawn your dentures.
(still brazenly walking down streets and backwards if i so choose!)

Where else would one decide to go for a road trip in 37 degree heat? New Norcia of course! But Noel is the official delegate for the Department of “Have you been naughty or nice this year?” and so no stone is left unturned, on his reconnaissance mission to update the naughty and nice list. We had a little Abbey Ale at the pub whilst Noel was on official business, so we’ve probably made it to the cheeky list, but I think that’s OK right?
On the look out.
The rains are a comin’ guys.
Behind the Scenes: our own official business.

“Looking to mauve house? This property for sale in Hillingdon in Middlesex could be just the plum deal you’re looking for.”
The truism “don’t judge a book by its cover” is never more apt than with this seemingly plain and unassuming house for sale in Britain. The purple potted plant outside is the only hint of the horror that dwells within.
If, like me, you have an aversion to purple, it is best if you look no further as the following images should come with a health warning.
last, and by no means least offensive………………

Orange you glad you don’t live here.
