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.
We had a work away day this week to buy lovely linens for quilts and cushions and props for photographs. This inevitably involved some retail therapy for the decoration of our houses too, well what else can you do when there are so many wonderful things to buy?
