So today is apparently the official first day of winter… and the start of Christmas judging by the number of fully decorated trees and houses in my social media feeds!
I am almost ready to welcome the Christmas season into our home and by the coming weekend I am sure we will be fully decked too. But for now I am still enjoying my cosy autumn colours, so here are some of my favourite photos I had meant to share a few weeks ago…
::: One of my favourite garden birds… that I have to look for elsewhere as our little garden is over run by neighbourhood cats!
::: The first fire of the season <3
::: My cosy autumn themed mantelpiece <3 Complete with crochet pumpkins, toadstools, leaves and a pom pom garland.
::: A new scripture print went up for autumn too – probably my favourite verse, Jeremiah 29v11.
::: I even managed a little crochet, a chunky green cowl for myself in King Cole Gypsy.
::: Also a little slouchy pompom hat for Emma, made using a double strand of Stylecraft Special DK. <3
Yay for happy, cosy, autumn days!
Ok, I think I’m about ready to embrace Christmas now! I’m off to crochet some little things for a christmas fair at our church this weekend 🙂 I’ll try and share them later this week!
Have a wonderful first week of advent!
