Shabbilicious and Simply Christmas...

...all rolled into one.

The lovely Kerryanne English holds a weekly link party called "Shabbilicious Friday" where like minded folk can share their shabby/French style/Christmas makes and finds.
I found this jewellery stand whilst having a rummage through some lovely shabby style gifts at a local craft shop. I just adore the cracked paint effect and the little bird at the top is so sweet.

It was the perfect stand to show off some of my latest knitted makes.
A few ruffle scarves and one made from a new yarn that I found that has pom-poms along the edge.
I really want to try and give as many handmade items as Christmas gifts as I possibly can this year.

I have been following Kerryanne's posts containing gift and decor ideas which are part of her Simply Christmas event that runs through until Christmas Eve.

Christmas has become so commercialised that I really am trying hard this year to put 'Home' back at the centre of the Holidays. If you haven't paid her blog a visit I think you should. Not only does she have some lovely ideas but she has lots of her friends linking up and sharing their ideas too - hop on over and take a look.............................................

The scarves are so pretty, it looks to me as if the pink/white one is exactly like the one I just knit for the Pink Scarf Project.
The stand is fab!
