This is what my lounge looks like in autumn. Having the cream couches means it is easy to change for the seasons, just using cushion covers and candles and throws. All the little autumny people etc come from Switzerland. My sister is the master bargain hunter, and buys up things on sale and Mum has crocheted autumn blankets for both of us - you can see mine on the arm of the couch - the squares. It is beautiful. I am looking for a cream rug to put on the carpet to lighten the room. The old carpets have to go. One day. After the heating system is replaced. And the stairs. And the bathroom. And I have redecorated. And after there is no chance of workmen and boots coming into the house. In my dreams.
And this is the little table at the entrance to the house. It is so easy to tie a few twigs together with raffia, stick in a couple of leaves, and wire a little pumpkin thingy and attach it to the pile. Marge showed us how to make them a couple of years ago. She is multi-talented, as I have said many times before!
I decided to make some bread yesterday. Doesn't baking make the house smell great? This bread is wonderful and keeps for ages without going stale. Then I made butternut and broccoli soup. Perfect for a chilly autumn evening.
And there you have a report of the last 24 hours. I am now retiring to the couch to finish the bright and happy quilt.
