Oh it is good to be back here at Under An English Sky. I've missed writing, missed recording our days and missed being here!
Have you been loving autumn? I have. I love when I drive around on my errands how the leaves fall from the trees littering my way. I love how I can smell wood-smoke in the evenings, how the nights are cool enough to give me an excuse to fill a hot water bottle and snuggle under the covers.
I thought that I would share a few touches that I have added to our home to bring a little of that autumn loveliness indoors.
This is what my mantle looks like right now...
Tiny pumpkins bought at the grocery store - perfect for the mantle. A vase of berries picked and clutches of cones gathered whilst on a walk recently.
This years new addition is a flower fairy string of scalloped bunting.
Oh and little tea lights - as the days draw in I love lighting candles around the house, it all adds to the cozy atmosphere
On the hearth is a vase of leaves and berries again picked on a nature walk. I have hung my pumpkin cross-stitch sampler too.
On the coffee table is a little display of apples, some in knitted cozy's, cones and more berries. I have not found any acorns on the trees thus far - I can only think it is because they put out such a show last autumn and are recuperating.
On my kist which serves as an occasional table we have a jar stuffed with cones and trimmed with garden twin and some owl feathers we found while at a recent visit to the Chestnut Centre.
And another few touches on another occasional table in the lounge area.
A little fabric cob and an autumn message in a frame.
The kitchen windowsill has my new little stitched cushion displayed on it - that's the only real addition there.
And last but not least, I have strung up a garland of autumn leaves that I found in a gift shop on my teapot display shelf.
So there we are, a few very economic but fun and cheerful touches to celebrate autumn.
Blessing to you all today...
