I love this colour combination and find it particualrly Christmassy. Here is a mosaic of a few of my favourite things this Christmas.
1. First off is Tunnocks Teacakes a long standing family tradition, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without Tunnocks!
2. Then a little carved wooden robin I bought with Mr Lemon Drizzle long before we had our kidlets, it has real sentimental value.
3. I finally succumbed to the pom-pom craze and used this tutorial from Martha Stewart which was soooo easy.
4. I made an advent calender for the kidlets using scraps of fabric I have accrued!  Next year I hope to add some more embelishment.
5.  My gingerbread men who have been having an adventure over at Middle of Nowhere.
6.  My gingerbread house, which has been entered into two competitions, please have a look and vote. Gingerbread Housing Crisis  Martha Stewart Gingerbread House Competition
7.  An applique I made a few years ago for Christmas cards.
8.  My Christmas Cake.
9.  More pom-poms as I love them so much!


  1. Ohh Tunnocks teacakes...nom. Thank you again for the gingerbread men - it's been really good to find you, and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow as I am mopping my tears during Dr Who!

  2. I've always loved that color combo, too. And I must learn to make those pom-poms -- dozens of them would look luscious in my store window! (What would the world be like without Martha's tutelage? I shudder to think...)

  3. Everything is absolutely charming! Such a cheerful mosaic and such talent. Your gingerbread cottage is wonderful and that cake~WoW!
    Happy New Year and may peace and prosperity be yours in 2010!

  5. Thankyou everyone and here's to a colourful year!

  6. I love that colour combination!

    The crochet set seems quite good, and the first one is good value at only 99p I have found some very good tutorials on you tube which go through each stitch over and over which is great for me :) I can send you the links if you would like.
    Have a lovely week.
