colour your monday happy...

...with a few essentials for the festive week...

...a gorgeous wreath, although it doesn't have to be christmas for one of Katie's gorgeous wreaths! ~ Katie Runnels...

...a pretty garland or two, or three! ~ clumsy bird...

...a good crafty project to work on while spending cosy evenings in ~ one pink plum...

...lots of yummy food ~ seven spoons • tara...

...a wee bit of festive sparkle ~ kristina♥kiessig...

...and maybe a wee dusting of snow for the perfect winter wonderland ~ T Does Wool...

...i think a wee dusting of snow would be a blessing compared to the huge dollops of the stuff a lot of people are getting just now. the UK seems to be getting off quite lightly compared to northern Europe and the US, where the snow is feet deep rather than inches deep... i think if that happened in this country a national disaster would be declared! i shall stop myself there before going on a rant about how we're a bunch of whinging complainers... ;)

...stay safe and stay warm my lovelies... :)


  1. you've made my day!! thank you, sweet Emma!! Happy Holidays to you!! xoxo

  2. A foot of light fluffy snow on Saturday. Very blowy right now and chilly, too.

    Happy Winter Solstice.

  3. What a wonderful collection of images, you have such a great eye!

    Here in the north west US, we have been known to whinge about the weather. When it snows, our city shuts down entirely (which isn't the worst thing in my opinion). Right now we just have sloppy wet and dark skies.

    Safe and warm to you too my dear!

  4. Ah yes... I remember. Leaves on the line and all that :) And it might even snow here in Athens!

  5. Happy photos,indeed.. I love the garlands.. Merry christmas!:O)
