Decorating for Halloween

With the children breaking up for half term next week we thought we would give you some ideas for Halloween decorating from the capital of Halloween, New England. As you all know Karen is currently there and will no doubt have lots more photographs but here are some from her last trip there.

Autumnal Musings

It definitely feels like Autumn now, the mornings are chillier and the days are shorter and the most exciting thing for me is the appearance of conkers on the trees. I know its weird but I love to go and collect them and split the spiky green outer to reveal the beautiful shiny mahogany conker within. I then have bowls of them in my house and rearrange pictures, throws and quilts to reflect the changing season. Fiery reds, deep oranges and browns, so cosy on a dark chilly evening with the candles lit.
