Let's start with a song.
Exactly, today's theme are reindeer (I might have been a bit inspired by the movie Pathfinder that I watched just recently), and I found a few real beauties.
It's not the first time that I stumbled upon Niftyknit's shop, but it always makes me smile. I wouldn't be surprised if you raised your eyebrow now. No, I'm not trying to pull your leg, I know this is a meerdeer, a reinkat ... heck, I don't know what it is, but it's cute!!

The reindeer on this table runner seem to have a vintage feel to them which I absolutely love. When I saw the picture, it took my mind right to one of my favorite books ever - The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper - that I always read around Christmas time, too. It takes place in England and the characters move in time. Somehow I can imagine this piece on a table in the old castle.

Do you know how to crochet? How about this pattern then? Such a cute Rudolph with his googly eyes!

A-ha!!! Would you have suspected those two to have a job on the side? Well, now you know.

I love old books and old children's books are especially dear to my heart ... this print is beautiful, don't you think?
