Loads of Colour, Festivities & Festive Baking

December 11, 2021

I’m well over halfway with my #bringmorecolourintoyourlife 100 day challenge and thank you to those who have been using the hashtag and participating. You can see Days 1 – 30 HERE.

This week on #lifethisweek with Denyse Whelan the prompt is Share Your Snaps so of course, it is the perfect time to share the next 30 days of the challenge. As I join in the #weekendcoffeeshare with Natalie, I thought I would also include some of the Festive posts from this week, in case you missed them.

This set of photos has been easy as we are into the Festive season so lots of colour and excitement to enjoy. This is a short and sweet post and I hope it colours and brightens your day.

It has been an eclectic 30 days from teapots to flowers, books, to clothes/shoes, catching up with a friend, grandsons and of course Christmas and the Festive Season themes.

Enjoy my colourful Days 31 – 60 and share your favourite with me……

      Hi Donna, it has been a challenge coming up with colour especially with all that is going on in our life at the moment. However, you are right, when I put all the colour together is just fills me with joy. xx

    Beautiful colour! Just what I needed to see today to help lift my spirits – thank you Sue! Well done on getting half way! I absolutely LOVE the dress you are wearing (not sure what day it is). It’s the kind of dress I love to wear! Take care xo

      Thanks Min! You would know that it certainly is a challenge to post every day especially if you are restricted to a theme. I’m enjoying it though and it has certainly lifted my spirits. I actually bought the dress from SHEIN, it isn’t expensive but is so comfortable and perfect for the Summer. xx

    I am loving following your #bringmorecolourinto your life challenge, it’s been so uplifting every day. You can’t help but notice colour all around once you start can you? Your dress is beautiful and suits you so well!

      Thanks, Deb, the challenge is really helping me at the moment and I’m finding so much colour when I look for it! xx

    I’ve enjoyed seeing all your bright photos popping up in my FB feed Sue – it’s great that you’re out and about and seeing all the beauty and colour around you. It certainly helps brighten your day and the day of others who see what you share.

      Hi Leanne, I’ve had a number of comments from readers enjoying the colour and it certainly has lifted my spirits during a difficult time.

      Thanks Lydia and I’m so pleased my post made you feel joyful. Love and best wishes to you and your family for Christmas and 2022. Enjoy your break and see you sometime in January. x

    Thank for the color and fun. It’s what we all need in these short days as winter approaches.

      Hello Antoinette, thanks for visiting! I can imagine with the shorter days one can feel a little low so I’m very happy that I could bring some colour and fun to your day. Best wishes to you for the Festive Season xx

    It’s been a colourful experience for me seeing how you have found colours in your life. I think once the challenge you set is over, you will continue to be far more colour-aware and enjoying all you view!
    Thank you for your wonderful support of my blog’s link up Life This Week in 2021.
    Yes, there is one more week to go, but if you are already taking a well-earned break, I will see you again in Monday 4 January 2022.
    May you be well, may you be safe, may you be content. Denyse

      Hi Denyse, I’ve always loved colour and since I retired I’ve opted for colourful clothing, however, this challenge has helped my mental health because of the ‘cloud’ that has been over Mr M and I for most of the year. I would like to say I would continue it after the 100 day challenge but don’t want to overcommit. It is amazing how much colour there is in the world if we just look. x

    I love hearing from you and your comments are important to me
