It’s that time again, you know what I mean, my favourite time of year and this Christmas is especially exciting as Duncs and I have a new perfect little addition to spoil rotten come Christmas morning!

Meet our Dusty Priscilla!

During her cat-naps, I’ve spent some glorious hours searching Etsy for those perfect gifts from some amazing Australian Etsy sellers that embody the Australian spirit of Christmas.

I know she won’t remember her first Christmas, But Duncs and I will and I’m sure it will go down in our family history as one of the best mornings of our lives!

Here are my Etsy pics for a Very Little Australian Christmas.

    A gorgeous selection of Australian gifts from across all the states. Nice! Now, if only I had a valid excuse to buy those super cute finger puppets from Tassie. Ok, I actually don't need an excuse....
