The Theme Game Week 5

I really enjoyed reading the diverse range of posts last week, on the theme of ‘play’. It seems most of us agree that as adults we need to play more, which is why it’s so lovely to see so many of you playing The Theme game – see what I did there?!

Our winner last week was… And Baby Makes Three – well done! And our 2 runners-up were You Baby Me Mummy and Virtually All Sorts – congratulations! Which does also mean that we have our monthly winner and our first ever prize winner now, and it is….

And Baby Makes Three – hooray and well done! You have won a delicious Standard Box from Crumpets & Coffee, so pop on over, have a browse, and then let me know your selection so that I can get it to you 🙂

And so the game now begins anew. All scores are wiped clear, and so it’s anyone’s game! And I suspect you’ll be wondering whether there is a prize this month? Well, yes, and it is rather gorgeous, too. It’s the beautiful handmade bracelet pictured there below,  from NJ’s Gems (@NJsGems), so thanks very much to her for supplying February’s prize. Now, are you up for winning it?! If this is your first time visiting The Theme Game, you can find out more about it all here.

This week’s theme is White, and as such I wanted to share 2 things with you. The first, my White board.

I find this so beautiful, so calming, so pure. There is just something about it that screams understated and elegant, and at the same time, compelling. I love seeing a riot of colours, too, but they rarely make me feel as calm as white.

And then this, a quote by Lewis Carrol’s White Rabbit, which struck me as particularly powerful..

Makes you stop and think, doesn’t it?

So what about you? What do you make of ‘white’? Grab the badge and share, and Redpeffer and I look forward to reading..
