I guess this post could also be subtitled 'Some of My Favourite Things'. It's been rather grey here for days now, and although the cloud is lifting it's still grey, so here are some of my favourite things to add a splash of colour to the greyness.
There's chocolate biscuits (yes there's colour in chocolate!), bobbins wound and waiting, dyed curly wensleydale fleece, alluring beads, a bag of ribbons and lace, a shelf of picture books, the beckoning colours of silk bricks, my Grandma's buttons (rather muted by today's standards) and cherry liqueur chocolates that need to be finished before the diet can begin.
A Splash of Colour is hosted by Silverpebble and there are many more pictures on the Flickr group too.
PS - There is one of my favourite things missing from this mosaic as I'd drunk it before I remembered to photograph it!
