Christmassy Colourful Friday

This Christmas I've decorated my home in a couple of Christmas colour palettes. Last year I bought quite a bit of mercury glass so this year I added pastel colours to blend in with the silver.
I've grouped together what I think of as my Scandinavian Christmas colour collection.  Putting together red and timbers to decorate the top of my old singer sewing machine
My tree has not been bought inside yet (it's in a pot and I don't like to put it inside for too long) but when it is decorated it will be in mercury glass and 'olde worlde' ornaments which give a wonderful antique look.  I found these fabulous images at the The Graphics Fairy, one of my very favourite blogs.
And of course Sam has come through again with these wonderful festive train pics.
A huge thank you to wonderful, fun Robyn at Daisy Quilts for Colourful Fridays.  It is one of the highlights of my week and has really made me observe my home in a different light, searching for different colours each week.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next year.
Robyn had a wonderful little Widdly Tink on her blog so I decided to make one too.

A very happy Colourful Christmassy Friday to all my blogging friends.
