should be a requisite Christmas decoration…love!!

Love this, love Fridays!

This gorgeous illustration comes from here…and I earlier made a purchase from Tartx’s Etsy store. Although there’s no rain on the horizon here, it’s a lovely sunny Friday. I’m hanging to escape from work and get out there…although I do have to go home and make my Mixtogether giftie for tomorrow. Enjoy your Friday!

Saffron love

Anyone that’s read any of my blogs knows that I’m not a Christmas person. However this update email from Saffron Craig was in my mailbox this morning, and I have to admit, these would be my choice for decorations this year:Go here to buy them, and here’s some fab Xmas stockings too. Ho ho ho.

Actually it is.

You just ask them.

Hollie orginally put me onto to Krisatomic, and I so love this drawing!
And the gal embroiders too, yay!

Inspiration photo

As I’m attempting to do a bit of cleaning up this afternoon, I’m sharing and loving this pic I saw via the Craftzine blog.


Alas, in the US, but available here for keen shoppers.

Saw this one on Craft Blog…

and as an embroidery lover, I think it’s fantastic.  Why don’t I think of things like this?  Love!
