I love Harris Tweed and the colours of this gadget cover from Whimsy Woo Designs are gorgeous!



As well as being pretty, these tree decorations from Beledien Handmade will make your home smell nice as they have cinnamon sticks as the tree trunks!



Winter is coming in the Northern Hemisphere and you can make yourself much cosier with these lovely boot cuffs from Dave’s Crafts.

Crochet goodness

I think this is my first Christmas post of this year – I know it’s still only October but I wanted to give a heads up for those who crochet and might want to make some of these cute designs as Christmas presents.



And the best bit is that the book has the poem ‘The Night Before Christmas’ included in it along with patterns for cute creatures. This include Santa Claus, a mouse and a Christmas tree among many others. There are instructions on how to make the amigurumi creatures so it would be perfect for older children who want to learn to crochet.

Black and white are such a classic colour combination so get ready to indulge in some monochrome goodness from Polkadottydolls.
