Cozy Time

I love this time of year, when the season changes and the nights are starting to draw in. Don't get me wrong I adore summer, and especially the summer we've just had. If we could have a really hot hot summer and a cold and snowy winter, I'd be over the moon.

Still, October is just such a lovely month ... all those leaves on the floor, winter boots coming out of the cupboard and of course Christmas, only 75 days away, what's not to love.

I apologise now for having been a bad blogger (again), but with the nights drawing in and cozy times sitting in front of the fire, I hope to change all that.

Anyway, I've been busy this week putting away summer in our home, and bringing touches of Autumn to it, so here are a few things I've been changing.

Plants and Door Wreath

Candles got changed over ... love this scent

Yipppeeeee .... Winter boots make a return

 No point letting these beauties go to waste from the garden


 The bunting came down and the autumn candles came out

Artificial flowers got changed over for a warmer feel
 
I changed over the flowers on our wall to these leaves that I cut out and inked
 
Changed over my pots 
 
I don't even mind sweeping up the leaves and fallen fruit ... yes, the boy isn't the greatest of helps when I'm trying to photograph - but he does like to get in a shot :)

And lastly, this is going to be keeping me happy with my post it notes for the next few nights.
 
I've also been having a lovely time catching up with my blog reading, so I promise to try my best and be a better blogger.
 
Catch you later x

  1. It's great to see you back and blogging. I love this time of the year, when there's a chill in the air, the colours are amazing and it's (mostly) dry! Eddie should be in every picture you put on your blog! :) x

  8. I do love Autumn for all the wonderful colours that Mother Nature brings but I don't like the wet windy weather we are having at the moment.

    Beautiful Autumn touches to your home. I love candles too and love spice/food smells such as Kitchen Spice (reminds me of bread pudding), cinnamon, Spiced orange.

    Thank you for your lovely comments

  15. I have to admit that I really don't like the cold but on the other hand I don't like it too hot either! I was happy to wear my winter boots for the first time today. Love your leaves on the wall.

  20. Lovely autumnal post - love how you change your decor to suit the seasons (must admit I am way too lazy to bother - apart from one picture that we change to a winter themed one as the clock's change). If you want snow this winter can you please just keep it to where you live - I am a snowaphobe as it means I can't leave the house - I am not looking forward to another winter of being marooned in the house and having to cancel all my appointments.
