I’ve mentioned I’m not a lover of Autumn but this year I am trying to get passionate about Fall.
Home has been in Summer mode since June but now I want to cosy it up for cooler days and darker nights. The more practical of you might be thinking about clearing fallen leaves from guttering, putting garden furniture away and washing down the greenhouse. I’m more excited by the thought of new candles, blankets and an extra layer of bedding ..
Let there be Light – I love twinkly lights but will patiently wait until nearer Christmas before breaking them out, instead I’ve gone for candles. You can’t beat a real log fire but candles can give a flavour of this with a host of little flames instead. Spicy aromas are too heady for me so I go for pine, cedar, mossy fragrances – like a walk through a damp forest! My current favourite is Fir & Berry from The White Company
It’s a Wrap – I’m changing light cotton cushions for knitted versions, and bringing out blankets to drape over my sofa. Great to cuddle up in on a rainy Sunday afternoon
A soft place to Fall – my bed is my sanctuary. I can climb in to crisp white sheets and drift away. When temperatures drop add a few more togs and a bedspread or throw
Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope it’s a good one for you .. and stay cosy!
