Guess the Theme 12

Good morning!  It's Friday again - hurray!!!!  Is it just me or does Friday seem to come around faster every week?  I seem to have only just finished one Guess the Theme when it's time to start on the next.  If today's theme was a Trivial Pursuit question it would be a green question - Science and Nature.

If you have struggled with Guess the Theme in the past you're not alone, but fear not - here's a quick guide to working out the theme...  The thing to remember is that all the gorgeous handmade goodies are just there to distract you (but take some time to enjoy them, they are lovely), the actual clue will be a word (or words) in the title of the object.  There are always a couple of clues that are a lot easier than the others (pepper, walrus and octopus for Beatles songs; frog, pig and chef for The Muppets) so if you can identify those then you just need to work out how the other clues fit in.  But be careful, I'm a bit evil so there's usually something a bit misleading thrown in to confuse you.

So now you know what you're doing let's get on with today's blog.  Once you have the answer you can share in the comments, on facebook or on twitter (@cutekidsclocks).
