I love your cute snowman with his cup of cocoa, looks like he has some marshmallows on the top too and perfect added stickles too, and also that crocheted scarf and a great photo of you wearing it, and in your favourite purple and some pretty pink too. x

Such a cute snowman, and I love the sparkles on his hat. I too like to have some crochet or knitting on the go I can pick up of an evening - keep my hands busy! Your scarf is lovely. Thanks for joining in with the 52CCT this week.
