December inspiration

I came across a copy of the latest issue of Marie Claire Idées yesterday. Like many bloggers I have discovered that this magazine is just full of inspiration, and the latest issue is no exception. I have spent a happy afternoon with a cup of tea and a lot of eye candy - there are just so many things to be inspired by, cute angels, stockings, embroidery, baked goods - I haven't really got my head around the fact that Christmas is approching, but this magazine is giving me a kick start. Click on the picture above to go to Flickr for a closer view.
I love this yo-yo throw in silky fabrics and with huge yo-yos (the green ones are made from 21 cm/8" circles!)

Tomorrow is the first Sunday of advent and weather permitting, time for a pre-Christmas market. That should help my Christmas spirit along...

oh, I must run over to Barnes & Noble forth with and lay hands on my own copy of MCI. Man, its always a treat to fix a cup of tea and sit down and have a read. I love their stuff. Why they don't print an english version, I will never know! I hope you make an elf. I am probably going to make a Marie aoinette version for Feb for Valentines Day- don't tell anyone- its a secret! teehee! happy pie and cake! :) kim
