Party Tricks

After the gluttony of Christmas, and in the days before New Year, Holly Hula and her husband Hollis liked to encourage restoration of their usual more disciplined lifestyle by practising their party tricks.

At bedtime, so as not to disturb the neighbours, Holly and Hollis would practise a more genteel form of magic.

Hello Chrisy! Commenting from southeast Ohio in the USA here. I love your blog and all the bright colors and excitement. Lots of Australian oomph and inspiration for sure! Well, I'd like to follow your blog, at your invitation, and join in on your fun fun times. You can stop by my blog and find out a little about me. Not as exciting as yours, but existential at best. LOL.
