Hello, friends. Thanks for hopping by Creative Mondays Link Up today.

Happy Monday lovelies. I hope you have all had a good weekend?

Busy, busy here as usual.

Seeing family, going shopping and working. All the usual things.

Can you believe it, December already!?

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas:

That means one thing, we can officially wear Christmas jumpers without people thinking it is too early!!

Also, we can wear them for work and no uniform.

Yeah, I love Christmas jumpers.

This year I have treated myself to a new one.


How cool is this!?

We do not have real snow yet but I love this Winter Wonderland theme at McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet.

    Your Brunch jumper is fun! I don’t have one, though if I did I would roll it out early for special pre-christmas events like this one.

    What a beautiful scene. The trees look amazing just dusted with snow, and what an awesome picture of the red bulbs on the tree – I pinned this to my Most Wonderful Time of the Year Board.

    I bought myself a fun plaid top with a glittered reindeer on it that says “Tis the Season to Sparkle” a couple weeks ago. Every day I look at it hanging with my other tops, but I patiently waited until December 1st to wear it out. Haha!

    Awesome of you to share. Happy Holidays!

    Hi Claire! Your Grinch sweater is so darling, I love the bright green ;). You look very glam in your fur coat! P.S. I found a leopard faux fur last week for only $35, so, yeah, I bought it. Pinning your Christmas cakes recipe.

    That is an adorable Christmas jumper. I don’t own one single one. I tend to buy very plain colored sweaters.

      Thanks lovely. I love a new one each year 🙂

    I love your Grinch jumper, Claire! I am feeling very Grinch-y this year so that may be the kind of Christmas jumper that I need! And your furry coat is gorgeous.
