Your blog is just beautiful - not only the amazing photography, but the wonderful pictures you paint with your words too. Your pride and love for your home and family in this post moved me to tears and are truly inspirational.


It is really beautiful at the moment, but you're right, the best part of being out is coming home....if only I could find some time to just sit and crochet......sigh........


I say hang asking for permission, buy the coat! I will last a few years as is not too trendy and will suit your style and colouring. Just make sure you have made a very nice dinner indeed and that the house is tidy the day you spring it on him :-)

I was wearing beige and gold mary janes yesterday and walking through golden leaves rather like the ones in your pictures, I wish I had taken a photo of them against the leaves they looked great!

Well it was bound to happen! Your pattern for the hexagons was excellent. It was very easy to understand. So now I am rippling and hexing. Only another crocheter could possibly understand the need to have two projects on the go.I have one question regarding the amount of wool for the hexagons. Will 16 balls be enough do your think as I have to order the yarn? My husband is from Kent in England and he is always saying "Oh to be in England when Spring is in the air." I don't know. Your autumn pictures are pretty fantastic. I think I would love England in any season. It might be time to leave these Canadian winters behind.


Gorgeous photos, how I love autumn leaves. I know exactly what you mean about builders quotes - our kitchen extension doubled in cost from architects estimate to final bill - gulp!
Crochet class starts tomorrow, Ill keep you posted!

So beautiful.


When I´ve got my first Boden catalogue this autumn it was exactly this coat which charmed me so much. Unfortunately I´ve bought a new coat last winter (black - very elegant, but how boring!), so there is no good reason to have a new one this year,too, isn´t it? But best luck for you!
The weather here is the same, golden sunshine and surprisingly biting cold air. Love the picture of your last summer flowers, that pink geraniums are such a great contrast and memory against the yellow, orange, brown autumn colours.

do you mind if i knit

That green coat is gorgeous! Does your beloved husband read your blog! I hope so...................... The Autumnal photographs are lovely......................... lovely, lovely, lovely....................




Now blowy and cold I can so but you should have been here in Wales last night good god it was like someone emptied about a million golfball bits of hail onto the velux. Both the kids woke up screaming, andy and I did see the comedy in it though. We ha da cuppa at 1am read a book with the kids and all conked out in one bed. I woke up with Little L stroking my head, sweetheart. Finally got round to popping on my blog about how we survived converting our barn and it reminded me of sleeping in our caravan here in the wind and rain and waking up to a frozen toilet!!!

What a lovely blog. I throughly enjoyed reading this one about Autumn as at the moment its very Rainy in Kent.
Also you've inspired my to pick up my hooks and have a go at your crochet tutorial!
Excellent ^^
Many thanks x


Fabulous photos!
We are coming to Yorkshire at the end of the week (York) and have just been discussing how cold it might be as it is warmish here in Devon.. but very wet.


Such beauty.


The cornflower blue sky, and the rich colours of the autumn leaves make me think the pictures could have been taken in New England. It is a different scenario here in the UK today. Out of my window the outlook is bleak and wet! At least I can visit your blog post for a bit of blue sky!


I'm glad you've had some good weather.... it is raining here as I type this. It is scary isn't it having quotes for work on the house? We need a lot of work after Christmas and I'm not looking forward to it!


Lovely pictures, the colours are beautiful. Wish we were having a lovely sunny day here in Devon, it's been raining all morning & the roads & paths are flooded. Think it's a DVD & cup of tea afternoon!! :)


Love all those Autumny pictures. Hope you manage to find the right time to ask for that coat! Thanks so much for your very sweet comment on my blog at the end of last week. It bought a very big smile to my face to read such kind words. Have a lovely day. Fiona


What lovely pictures, we are hoping to get to Holmfirth this sunday....
Yorkshire is beautiful...
