  18. Ooooo, I don't know where to start! Those are the best knitting dolls I have ever seen! I love them.
    I made a trinket dish the same time I made the doily imprinted Xmas decks - just need to get around to painting it. Don't they look fantastic for something that is so simple to make?
    Is that you in the 'Princess Leia' photograph?

  19. Christmas Christmas and more Christmas....I'm having a girls only cocktail party this Friday, Mad Men style.
    So were all excited the Hubbies are pouting a bit!.....Love the princess Lea hair ,I say give it a go!

  20. Wonderful post Vanessa! I love your pictures :-) and currently I am into latte's from our coffee machine which is finally up and running here in Canada, together with Lindt extra creamy milk chocolate, and on the creative side it is the IKEA Santa fabric I am in love with at the moment.
    Have a wonderful new week!

    Love, Maaike

  24. Thank you for putting a smile on my Monday morning face!

    Yes, I'm all about bright colours these days with my mustard yellow top, pink Fairystep shoes, green velvet trousers and purple velvet coat... need I go on? Needs must ey?

    I am currently loving all my beautiful Madelinetosh yarn purchased to make so many lovely projects....

    Sigh of pleasure.

  25. Gosh what lovely, lovely smiley things. I now have huge toadstool, blanket and tights envy!

    Thank you for sharing such cheery things.
    I've loved that!

  26. Well my friend I am loving your loves too...those chocolate snowball things would do we well right now. And yes...I am sooooo loving blankets..wool plaid are my favs
    So a few chocolate snowballs and a pretty wool blanket would be HEAVEN right now. xoxoxo HUGS

  27. I found my old knitting Nancy from when I was a girl the other day, she looks very similar. Now I just need to relearn hoe to use her. I am loving wooden toys for kids, far better than the plastic stuff. Love all your lovely photo's

  28. This post got me all excited!
    Go for the Princess Leia look. I think it could be lovely with some strands of hair coming down. Plaits in buns are nice too.
    I am afraid I am going to be irritating and ask where the dollies for knitting are from. Love 'em. Aw, your cute little boyfriend too.
    I think I have the same tights.
    I really like the toadstool lights. I saw some little decorations yesterday that were similar, kind of glass looking.
    What a lovely little world you have.
    Happy Monday. xxx

  29. Well right now im loving those mushroom tealight holders how cute are those ;-)) I adore those kitting dolls i brought one for my friends little girl last xmas. Have a lovely week, dee x

  30. I'm loving looking at the pretty colours on yours and others' blogs as currently I have a very grey house covered in kitchen renovation-related dust and bear plaster walls. I'm longing for the end of January when I aim to have it finished by but in the meantime thank you for keeping my days colourful :)

  31. How come every time I visit you I feel the need to spend I would love my hair to look like that. Love the new header!

    Thank you for your comment :0)))))

  32. I'm loving your blog :-) and that white crochet blanket under your trinket dish! Can you email me the name of the pattern? Thanks bunches :-)

  33. Oh your whole list just makes me smile!!! I sooooo love your style! And those little ladies are just cute enough that I might start knitting! SOOOO cute!

  34. I am loving those toadstool tealight holders especially, I have a thing for anything toadstool related. At the moment I am loving the fact it will be my son's 2nd Christmas and starting wrapping his toys is making me smile. I'm doing him a stocking using the same one I had as a little girl and it feels very special.

  40. Can you tell me where you got the tea light holders from as my mum would like some.

    1. The Tea Light holders came from a shop called Tiger. I bought them last year, and I haven't seen them do anything like that this year. You may have some luck trying to get hold of some on ebay. Sorry I cannot be of any more help. Good luck on your search! : )
