Life is an adventure of the heart, an adventure into love

I'm really getting into the mood of the season this year. I've just realised that the past two Autumns I have been moving house, so I think that I am able to enjoy immersing myself in Autumn festivities because I am more settled than I have been for a while.

I have made yet another decoration for our home. I have been so inspired by my fabric leaf shapes (remember I made bunting and falling leaves too). This time I made an autumn 'chandelier', inspired by this book. I threaded rose hips onto some wool using a large needle and then tied the bottoms onto a wreath made from hazel, silver birch and ivy- simply bent into shape and wired. I then sewed on more of my fabulous leaf shapes and some real foliage is poked in too. I love it!

This is my little corner of the world and I love it!

You can't beat a blue skied October evening, it is so cosy- making.

One of the highlights of my week so far... the coffee my husband made for me... sigh!

This was really all about the photos and to gush about Autumn. More to come soon.


  1. I love the deep blue of October skies--those pictures are beautiful ;) How did you get the coffee froth in that heart shape?

  2. Hey Simi, Thank you :) My husband cut out a heart shape in the center of a piece of paper, he then held this over the top of the cup and sprinkled grated chocolate over - voila heart shape!

  3. It looks just like Fall!! So great. Your pictures are amazing. I love your blog and I'm your newest follower :) Your children are so cute!!
