heart the hook..

I recently had a special request for some crocheted jute hearts, I didn't make any promises as I've barely had time to look in the direction of my hooks let alone make stuff! 

This morning though, I did.   Gosh it felt so good to pick them up again and get back to it.  In the end I couldn't stop.  I hope she loves them as much as I do, there's something so compelling about the ruggedness of twine in sweet romantic shapes..

More creative spaces here..

stop, enjoy the magic..

What a month it's been! Christmas is happening and I feel like we haven't made time to stop and enjoy it's magic.

I adore Christmas and all its twinkling, decorating, gift wrapping and festivites.  So this weekend I've made sure all our fairy lights are on, I hired a heap of Christmas DVD's, popped on the carols and made christmassy treats!

Yesterday we jumped on a train and ventured into the city to soak up more of the christmas spirit.  We wandered the laneways, admired the Myer windows and caught up with Santa for our annual picture tradition.

For the next week, we are going to make the time to stop and enjoy the magic of Christmas.  It's been a tough ride this year, so now it's time to reflect, appreciate one another, and count our blessings.  Because no matter how manic and beyond us this life can be, we certainly are blessed and we have a lot to be grateful for..

Have a happy, festive weekend everyone! x
