Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

It's Christmas, it's cold and...ohmygod it's snowing! That can only mean the illusionists are back again and this time our house is being used for a Christmas shoot.

They brought a real tree, but the snow is fake and messy and it's competing for deck space with the geraniums and the lavander and the portulaca. While most folks are dealing with the insane heat and unusual humidity, I'm showing the crew where the shop vac is so they can vacuum the snow off the deck.

They chose our house because they really liked our master bedroom and bathroom, but then, once they arrived, they decided
our bed was too big and the room too small so they took the bed completely apart, took all the furniture out of the family room, hauled the kingsize bed in and put it back together and bingo...our family room became a bedroom. Very handy with the kitchen within spitting distance.

Then they added a jolly and festive wreath just above the bed and started snapping. Tomorrow they're coming back for more.

Snow is California? In July? How weird!

Who are these “illusionists” and why are they snapping Christmas photos in your home?

Oh, I feel suddenly down, like the first time I found out Santa was really my own dear Pop. Does this mean that the glossy magazine spreads in Christmas issues are all fake? :)

Hope this is all profitable as well as surreal...

And bizarrely Lin, this is exactly like having Christmas in Sydney (or anywhere else in Australia). Hot, loads of fake snow and bizzare European/American images (holly, mistletoe, robins, snowmen)everywhere...the only thing missing is some poor sweating over heated Santa.

Ooow, how exciting. Make sure they pay you stupid amounts of money for the privilege. And maybe 'accidentally' knock over a vase then blame it on the Best Boy or the Key Grip. They deserve it for having such silly job titles.
