Today is the first of October {already?!!} and I'm really loving all things autumnal so far. September and October are probably two of my favourite months. It's not cold yet but it's a novelty to wear new knitwear and tartan scarves. The days are warm {almost hot} and sunny with those clear blue cloudless skies but the evenings are chilly meaning you can light the first few fires of the season. There are burnt orange through to pink sunrises, misty fields and a smell of bonfires in the air. It's a time for obsessing over all things antlers {I've bought these hooks, stag bookends and a decorative stag's head...} and for lighting woody, smoky candles {Diptyque Feu de Bois plus Figuier are heaven at this time of year}. There's an abundance of apples, pears, blackberries, figs and plums ready for baking with. The leaves are turning, a few more weeks and they'll be ready for crunching through. Soon there will be pumpkins everywhere. Simple pleasures. Autumn I love you.
