So far October is proving to be a lovely month, although the temperatures have dropped we are still having some lovely sunny days. I love the mid afternoon light on the garden.
And I caught my little garden friend having fun in the bird bath, this really bought a smile to my face watching him enjoying splashing about.
My intention at the beginning of the year to decorate my mantle each month fell by the wayside but I collected my Autumn decorations together and made an effort for October.
I made this last year, I was happy that it was still ok to bring out again.
The apple garland is from last year too, the white pumpkins i picked up from a florists on my travels in the Cotswolds during August, aren't they cute! the ceramic pumpkin was from TK Max and has a light in. The pine cone was picked up by Oliver on one of our walks.
These are on my other fireplace and i've had them a few years
My £ shop pumpkin, I love him :-)
The green gourd behind him was another TK Max find
Now these little beauties below are real, I just couldn't resist them when I was shopping in Aldi last week
I can't resist picking them up and looking at them whenever i walk past, they are just so perfect!
I have been stitching too, Elizabeth has had quite a lot of attention and the end is in sight.
She also fits in with the Autumn theme too with her colours
Got to love her scribbley hair!
(When my eldest daughter, Jenny was little she had very curly hair and used to call it scribbley hair, hence, curly hair has always been called scribbley)
The next couple of weeks are going to be busy with 2 birthdays to celebrate, a trip to London to enjoy and a stitching meet up to look forward to, so life is good :-)
I hope October is being good to you too.
Until next time
