Autumn Will Soon Be Upon Us

I have to say that normally I am getting in the mood for decorating the house for Autumn. These are examples of last year's decs. In the first the book I am using is a copy of Pretty Nostalgic to which I used to subscribe. I still love to use the books for seasonal decorations and inspiration so take a look at my other posts if you get five minutes.

The book in the picture above is an old copy of A Diary Of An Edwardian Lady which I found in a charity shop for £1. It is great for paper crafting and, again, as a decoration as the illustrations are wonderful.

However, because of life being as it is just now I am not even thinking about it but I have to say the onset of Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year. I love the changing of the leaf colours, the crunch when you kick though them and that I will soon be able to cosy myself in my lovely wrap I keep downstairs when the evening start to get a little chilly. 

What time of the year do you prefer?


  1. Lovely books and a great idea using them for decoration, I love the Edwardian diary images :-)

    1. Thanks Dawn. The Edwardian images have been used to make some fantastic birthday cards, too

  2. Autumn is my favourite season. It's the thought of cold crisp air and changing leaves that gets me through summer. Which I am not a fan of! That said, I do try to make the most of summer for Violet's sake, but it's not easy!

    Lovely photos. I am so ready to add autumnal touches around the home now. :O)


I am so grateful if you have the time to comment and I will always do my best to respond.x
