I had a messy morning. One of those days when the train was late, there was drizzly rain, there was a hole in my coat pocket and I had to rescue my glove from the lining of the coat… I stopped on the way to work for a Starbucks.

I can’t resist the red Christmas cups and hot chocolate at home doesn’t taste right unless it’s in my ceramic red cup. I was most excited this morning to see teeny ceramic red cup tree decorations on sale. I’m off Christmas shopping tonight and some of those little cuties will be coming home with me. Until then, here’s another christmas tree trend that I’m loving this year – wooden and metal birds. They’d definitely fit with my country/gingham/gingerbread tree style.

art print by Freya Art

My new little niece Gwen Ruth was born on Sunday, weighing 7lbs 12oz. She’s adorable and has proved herself to be an angelic new baby. This lovely print by Freya Art came to mind this morning as I was thinking of my sister and her newly expanded family.

Strike

I was tragically excited to get a hat out for my journey to work this morning. Today I went for a black beret with a black and white polkadot bow. I was looking forward to the arrival of my lovely new winter boots, just in time for a day at a castle in the countryside tomorrow. I somehow missed the news of a major postal strike in the city (again) and must imagine my lovely new boots sitting sad and lonely in a postal sorting office wishing they could be stomping through grass and leaves while paired with thick black tights and a plum coloured woollen dress.

autumn birds fabric

Luckily this lovely fabric from Kathy Hall at fabricsupplies on etsy is restoring my love of autumn, and giving me all sorts of ideas for a new autumn quilt. Maybe a log cabin with autumn golds, deep reds, plums, aubergine and deep greens…

Polly George makes the most gorgeous pottery. I love both the birds and butterflies range, but particularly this bird cake stand. Her designs are beautifully understated and simple.
