Another massive thank you to all those who took part in December. I know it’s such a busy time of year for most people, so I’m even more grateful than usual that you all found time to post your photographs.
It’s taken me a few days (there were a lot of participants!) but I’ve finally done the rounds and chosen my favourite from each category…
I have two favourites in this category this month. The beautiful vintage book taken by Magie, and the riotously colourful flowers taken by Rachel:
Something I made
Hands down winner for this category is Sara with her awesome space invader cross stitch!
This was a really challenging topic and I was pleased with the variety of subjects you guys found. My favourite is this one by Jen, which makes my eyes water a bit, but in a good way!
I love, love, love the vivid colours in this shot of a tree stump by Nicole – utterly gorgeous:
My favourite in this category is this beautiful, and definitely festive, bauble shot by Tamsin:

If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt then please visit Kirst’s blog to see how this all began. I’m acting as guest host again this month, and I hope you find everything to your liking!
I’ll start off with a list of those people who are taking part – please do visit their blogs and have a look at their entries for this month. If they haven’t posted their photographs yet then please be patient and check again on the 31st!
I’ve definitely taken inspiration from some of the things I’ve seen in craft magazines this month, though not really in the way they originally intended…
Something I Made
We saw chains of origami stars at a craft fair recently and I ended up making my own. We received a Christmas card in a very pretty (and huge) envelope, so I recycled the envelope and turned it into stars. Add some sparkly red embroidery thread and voila, one simple garland.
An abstract shot of the Times Eureka Chelsea Garden at Kew Gardens. It’s a beautiful garden and you can read more about it here.
A friend had these embroidery threads out when I went to visit and I thought they were so vibrant and cheerful.
I’m not one for Christmas trees really, but my fella wanted one so I found something I could live with. I think this wooden tree with built in LED lights is perfect: simple but still festive.
In a few days, once I’ve had a chance to view all the entries for this month, I’ll put up my favourites – please do pop back to have a look! In the meantime Rachel over at The Awesome Lady will be guest-hosting for January, so please pop along to her blog to see what topics she’s chosen
