These recent gales we've been subjected to have blown down any remaining leaves I would say and before the rain started, they were deep and crisp and decidedly crunchy.
We had to have some repair work done on the roof this week and my eyes are still watering at the thought of how much money we had to part with. It would appear that roofing is quite the industry to be in, although I didn't envy the guy when the wind was howling around the chimney tops. But at least there's hope for a dry house this Winter and now I don't flinch quite so much at the merest mention of any snow that may come over the next few months.
I've been beavering away in my little space all week, only taking time out to watch the childrens' various school activities and presentations as they begin the run up to Christmas. Just a couple of weeks to go before it's school's out, can you believe it?
I added another cashmere purse to the pile, this one's a lovely conker-brown shade, with vintage Liberty lawn and 1920s appliqued blossoms which look as though they're being blown about in the wind too.
Have a great weekend, everyone. It's a beautiful day today.
