Lovely Autumn Things

Tree, leaves, grass and sea photo collage

Ringing my bike bell and whizzing along in a mini skirt.

Seeing the lights of home peek through the fog on my boat ride home.

Finding the perfect tune for a rainy day.

Smelling coal fires and damp leaves.

Watching a single line of geese flying low over the sea.

Lighting the touch paper on the first fire of the season.

Splurging on a decadent pile of brand new books.

Baking new recipes with an obscene amount of chocolate and butter.

Amidst a very busy term, I’m finding lovely pieces of autumn all around me.  Including these photos, pinched from Tom’s Instagram gallery.

Paris à l’automne


I’ve just returned from a girl’s trip to Paris, filled with so many good things.  I loved the myriad of little shops, with their inviting displays.


Books, bikes, and yarn; a few of my favourites!  There were plenty of unexpected moments for craft appreciation, like the crowd knitting hats outside of Saint-German l’Auxerrois, the enormous display of old sewing machines in the window of a fashion house, or the art at the Petit Palais.



The weather was perfect for wandering and we appreciated every autumnal, golden moment.
