love, christmas finalists + winner


it was so much fun doing the love, christmas photo challenge!
all the entries made me think of hot chocolate, snowy days and warm fires. and sticky toffee pudding.

we have three finalists and I can tell you now kids, it was no easy task picking the winner.
no sirree. I practically died in the process.

finalist # 1
carli's picture stole my heart and my love for old-fashioned ornaments.
this picture screamed christmas. it screamed warmth, christmas trees and childhood memories.

finalist # 2
olivia's picture made me go all dreamy. that hot chocolate makes me want to dive into that picture and have a bath in it.
I loved the composition in this picture and the focus made my heart stand still.

finalist # 3
jennoelle's entry warmed me up inside from head to toe. I wanted to hug that lil-teeny-weeny-tiny christmas light. the bokeh was most definitely edible. like midget gems.

so. after dying, drinking tea, weeping, eating stewed apples and icecream, the winner has been chosen.

the winner is...
carli !
