Here are some sneak peeks of the Christmas Club colourways. They will be on there way to club members next week.
Caroling Caroling (Red)
There is something about the image of standing around the piano singing Christmas songs that really appeals to me. I am definitely no singer but I do sometimes wish that we kept up with these sort of sing song gatherings like my grandma and her family used to.
“Caroling, Caroling” performed by Nat King Cole is really more a song about singing out in the snow, door-to-door, but it does make me think of Christmas parties and sing alongs when I hear it.
I hope you find this colourway warm, rich, comforting and Christmassy.
Happiest Christmas Tree (Gold)
This colourway was inspired by the song “Happiest Christmas Tree” performed by Nat King Cole.
This is a lively and quirky tune about a downright jolly Christmas tree. It’s kind of silly but it’s cute and never fails to bring a smile to my dial. The golden colours represent the very thing that makes the tree so happy: all its Christmassy bling… the lights, bells and all that sparkle-sparkle.
Zat You, Santa Claus? (Purple)
This colourway is inspired by Santa Claus. Before he decided to wear red and white for good he didn’t mind mixing it up a bit with his outfits. When doing my Vintage Christmas research I came across quite a few gorgeous images of Santa in different coloured suits. I was particularly taken with anything showing him in deep purple velvet. My kind of Santa ☺
The song “Zat You, Santa Claus?” performed by Louis Armstrong seemed fitting as its not your average Santa song. Our purple Santa may not be the Santa you expect, but he looks quite dapper, don’t you think?
Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Blue)
Brrrrrr there is something so very Christmassy about snow, all my favourite old Christmas movies have snowy scenes. The song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (My particular version is performed by Louis Armstrong), congers up all that really wintery, romantic Christmas spirit for me. I tried to capture some of this with my colourway, imagining myself sitting by the fire, peeking out at the cold through iced-up double-glazed windows. I added some little pops of deep blue to represent crunchy footsteps in the snow and the hints of green represent the reflection of the Christmas tree on the glass.
Well that’s all folks, I hope you like them.
