My Favourite Things

 1. Winter days wasted away in bed in cozy knitted socks. A simple pleasure, but I love giant knitted socks, preferably knee high. They are cozy, wintery and cute. These are from Free People and are huge! They also aren't itchy which is a major plus for me! These socks also make for good welly socks, keeping your toes warm!

 2. Weekend sewing. So, made this super ugly hat today. I will have a DIY tutorial up soon hopefully. Even my sister likes this hat, which is a big complement so I am pretty excited. She is my biggest critic.

3. My favourite thing of the week? My Christmas tree.  He is quite a beauty, and he makes the house smell lovely. I love putting up the Christmas decorations (hate taking them down though), I am so controlling when it comes to decorating the tree so I am mostly left to do it by myself. People just do it wrong! I also thought I would extend this by going through my three favourite Christmas decorations of the year.


Gingerbread-men bauble from Liberty's of London. I bought this for my mum, I buy her a new Christmas decoration each year and fell in love with this glittered creation. I added a bow from Liberty ribbon at the top too. If I was up to me every Christmas decoration would have a bow at the top, bit naff and over the top but I don't care!!

 Monsieur Pig. He was hand made from a craft fair. Isn't he a cutie?! We bought this for my dad, don't think too much into it. He just likes pigs.

Mr Narwhal, was from Anthropologie, my sister got him last year and he is so sweet, if not a bit weighty so you need a sturdy branch for him to feature on. Kinda loving this walrus from this years selection!

Has everyone got their Christmas tree up yet? Where have you seen the best decorations this year?

With love from,

    1. Every girls needs knee highs. I am in two minds on if they are cute and girly or slutty and like lace hold ups. Both are good I guess!

  5. Aw these are such cute photos! I wish I could rug up for Christmas...for so long I have wanted a cold Christmas! I adore your hat, and oh your tree is stunning! I would love it if our family used a real tree too.

    The liberty decoration is simply gorgeous! My tree mostly has handmade folk art decorations painted by my mum and old, treasured bits and pieces hehe

    1. Real trees are amazing, but I guess kind of pointless because they are a waste, but I LOVE them. Our family has never had a fake tree so they £40 or whatever for it makes Christmas for me!

      I love the sound of your tree! Can you take a picture when it is up? I'd love to see it. We have hand made stuff too but it is from when I was a kid and art wasn't my forte at 5..!

      Thanks for being so sweet!
