Oh heavens - is it me or do I sound like an old biddy?
Don't answer that!!
Autumn is well and truly here. The leaves are colouring up. The mornings are misty. I am awakened most mornings to the sound of the foghorns on the river - I love being able to snuggle down under the covers for a few minutes more listening to the ships.
To welcome the autumn we reclaimed the forest at the weekend. The
We went to a new to us part of the forest. The delightfully named Deadman Hill.
One person, in particular, was very pleased and headed to the nearest ditch to celebrate. B***dy idiot!
Small people made shelters for pixies - apparently....
...and mossy beds for fairies.....
.....lined with white stones to help the fairies find their bed in the dark - apparently :-)
Moogsdad and I indulged in a fungal foray - just looking....no picking...too scared we might pick something deadly!
We reminded ourselves just why we love living here and how much the forest means to us. We won't leave it so long next time.
I don't wish to overload your senses but there's even been crafting happening this week!
A brief dabble in the dark arts of papercrafting. Using a super-cheapo Tesco notebook....
.....my new fabby index tab punch from Stampin' Up.....
...and my favourite Basic Grey papers (complete with selvedge!)....to make me a new diary.....with only one or two tiny mistakes when it came to writing all the dates in by hand....y'know minor errors like writing 2008 instead of 2009 for the first three weeks of January....
I even got to make the other two of these that I cut out last week and they've gone into the you know what.
I had a couple of great charity shop finds today but they will have to wait for daylight before I can show them off.
I also found this fab website with loads of great tutorials all in one place. They must be great because I found me on there (yes really!!!!) and even better my superbly brilliant Aussie buddy Jodie !! Maybe you all know about this already and I'm waaaaay behind but I liked it :-)
I rather like this that I found on there.
Here's hoping you all have a wonderful weekend.
