A Splash of Colour - January

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!

A gorgeous Splash of Colour Su. I admire your restraint. Those chocs would be a distant memory in my house:-)!!

May 2011 be a great year for both your garden and your creative projects. Happy New Year!

Gorgeous mosaic - I especially love those bobbins and the lovely yarn. Hurray for colour!

Lots of lovely colours to brighten up the day. I love all the ribbons.

So that's where my tin of choccie biscuits went. Phew, for a moment there I thought I had eaten them and not realised.
Gorgeous piccies.... just what you need when you look out the window and see... SNOW, again!
Happy New Year!

Now that's an idea with that Wensleydale. The blue is so pretty!

Lovely! What a fantastic colour that fleece is.
