Day 23: Scarf

This is by far my favorite scarf of this season. I love scarves though! :D 

Day 22: Tradition

I love that crackers are a tradition here! We never had that growing up! We also enjoyed a fairly new tradition of "bubbles and nibbles." Here's to many more years of a fun tradition! 

Day 21: Peace

I am finally at peace now that I put my last tray of cookies in the oven. We only made 5 different types of cookies! Hopefully everyone enjoyed them. 

Day 20: Tree Topper

Ours lights up!

Day 19: Candy Canes

We didn't buy any actual candy canes this year, so this will do! 

Day 18: Stockings

Our lovely hand knitted stockings :)

Day 17: Presents

Look at this haul! We have some lucky folks in our family with this lot of gifts!

Day 16: Outside Christmas Lights

Our Main Street is a bit festive with their wreath lights!

Day 15: Favorite Holiday Song

It is hard to choose just one! But I thought that this is one of my favorites from A Charlie Brown Christmas. 

Day 14: Christmas Tree

We went to a nice holiday party at a friends' house tonight and they had this cute little tree :]

Day 13: Family

I wasn't around any family today but thought I'd post the gift I made for the fella's family cat! I made him little cat nip mice. I'm sure that he is going to love it! 

Day 12: A Beautiful Sight

This one isn't Christmas themed but here are some pretty flowers. :)

Day 11: Green

My mom sent me a Christmas care package and put this little guy inside! 

Day 10: Wrapping paper

I got to wrapping my gifts early this year! I  think it's really enjoyable and you can think of the recipient as you wrap.

December 9, 2013

We've just returned from 5 days in Scotland! So here are the photos that I took for the days we were there!

Day 4: Joyous

Scotland is one of my favorite places in the world, I can't really explain it! So passing the Scotland sign made me really happy! (Apologies for the awful quality!)

Day 5: Today's Temperature

We were lucky to have a really diverse range of weather while we were away! We had sunshine and snow and everything in between. I loved every minute of it.

Day 6: Shopping

We saw this cute little sheep coaster while we were out. We weren't very successful with finding many Christmas gifts but we did our best.

Day 7: Bright

I didn't really know what to do for this one besides lights, so I thought that I would provide a mystery photo. Can you guess what it is??

(Answer: Tasty Whisky!)

Day 8: Ornaments

We stopped for some lovely hot chocolate and the shop we were in had this festive tree.

Day 9: Something You're Reading

I thought this only appropriate given our location. :D

Day 3: Red

I thought that I would share this today as my 'red.'

I have been working on a few holiday themed knitting patterns and am currently working on this pillow covering. I absolutely love the way knit patterns look and find it a fun and challenging activity. They look so complicated but are actually really easy to do!

Day 2: Favorite holiday movie.

Well, this is one of my favorite holiday films. Unfortunately, when I came over to England, I couldn't bring some of my favorites with me. But this one will suffice being that it takes place here in the UK. My other favorites are Elf and A Charlie Brown Christmas. What are your favorite holiday flicks?

Day 1: Your view today

This is pretty vague instructions, so I thought that it could literally by anything "in view." Since the view outside my house is just a boring street, I thought that I would post a photo of our Christmas tree that we got today. And there are already presents under it! He is a nice 'view' from the couch!
