Oh boy….that was an awkwardly long break. Life has been crazy over here with work, assignments, social commitments and trying to find some sort of house to live in. I have not had time to knit or crochet, let alone scratch my nose. But lets stop with the excuses, no-one wants to read me ramble on for a whole blog post about how much of a bad blogger I am. Am I right?
Winter has well and truly kicked in and I am loving the wooly socks, flannel sheets, hot chocolates and puddle skipping – the freezing cold mornings when I have to get up early not so much. Here are a few other things that are making me smile this winter.
My brother’s wedding is just 8 months away (not to freak you out brother!). It’s even sooner than expected due to a slight hiccup with the venue, but that’s all the more reason to be excited. We might just have to ask the photographer to snap a cute picture like this.
Cosy knits. I’ve been rocking a lot of wooly jumpers and cardigans lately. This one here via Alisa Design is just so ladylike with the accentuated shoulders.
Our trip to New Zealand in December. We plan on doing a lot of Lord of the Rings type tours to keep the boys happy and I am most excited about visiting Hobbiton – I hope it looks just as pretty as the picture above.
I have been finding so much inspiration for my graphic design course lately. I keep being drawn to pieces like this one from Leens Print. I think I will have to make my own sometime soon – fun craft project for my wall?
And of course this adorable doggy trench via The Rover Boutique, what a cute, happy (and warm) puppy!
What’s keeping you happy and warm this winter, or summer as it may be in your corner of the globe?
