I love Autumn



The last few days we have had such lovely sunshine ... and the colours of the trees and the ever falling leaves are so beautiful .... I love to take the time to look and soak in the glorious abundance of colours ... to watch the squirrels as they dart from tree to tree and along the fence, harvesting the long awaited for fruit of the beech trees and oak trees. The ground around my garden is red from the berries that fall and the birds are enjoying a feast before the winter sets in .... I never tire of this season ... I think this ... and Spring when the fresh green buds appear have to be the most splendid seasons of all ...
I made a little card in honour of the season ....



I love the little stamp I used here ... got it for £1 ... sometimes the best things are those which don't cost much ... like taking time to stop ... step out of the daily hustle and bustle and really see the beauty we are so fortunate to be surrounded in ....

Till soon - keep safe

City Crafter Lace and Doily Swap ...

I started back at Practical Philosophy last night ... then woke up to a beautiful sunny morning ... but my day just got even better .. the Postman just brought me a package from my swap partner .. Chriss Blagrave ... all the way from Austin Texas ... heck the closest I'd ever got to Austin Texas was watching films and now here I am receiving beautiful gifts from someone who lives there!! 
And my oh! my what beautiful things I got ... together with a gorgeous handmade card (sigh) ... have a peek ...



What a beautiful doily and cupcake



Fabulous hey? 


Even little felt coasters


How fabulous is that vintage doily? just like my Swiss Nana used to make ...



And another oh so delicate vintage doily ... a doily stamp and paper doilies ...
Chriss I am so grateful for your kindness and generosity ... and a big thank you too - to Kirsty for organising this fun event.
Back soon
