Santa has just had a big makeover ~ I used to enjoy seeing him and his reindeer, as a little girl and he used to wink one eye and had a beckoning finger.
This Santa has been part of Auckland's heritage since 1960.
The inviting finger has been given the flick, as the noise the motors made upset apartment dwellers who had bedrooms a few metres from old Santa.
Sold out! Mouse Opera.
I took a few photos of Christmas in Auckland City, the other day when I was shopping.
I apologize for the quality of the photos - The shop window of Smith & Caughey's a big department store was lovely. I especially loved the Ballerina mice all dressed up in their tutus. You really had to be there to see them, as the reflection from the glass was hard to get a good photo.
My heartfelt thanks to you all for coming to my little blog and all the lovely comments you have left, also the new followers.
My daughter picked two winners for the giveaway, out of the glass and they are ......
Lottie the Lamb ~ Jermaine from French Kissed
Percy the Pig ~ Piitis from Valkoinen Pioni
Please email me your address and I will get your gifts in the post.
This is the part that I do not like as I would like to give you all something to say thank you.
Happy week to everyone.
