Halloween has not passed us by this year without leaving its mark.
Our kitchen table has become home to an ever growing collection of pumpkins, in all shapes and sizes.
I'd love to be able to tell you that we grew them all, but that would be stretching the truth somewhat!
I think seeing these wonderful coloured squashes everyday has started to influence me in my shopping,
I couldn't resist this hand knitted cushion that sits on the sofa looking like one huge over grown pumpkin!
Or these vintage fabrics, reflecting the colours of Autumn,
I'm even enjoying the fallen leaves that cover our lawn. Unlike Mr D who is trying very hard to keep on top of collecting them up. The brightness that they bring lights the garden up, which is very welcome in the dull grey days we've been having of late.
So even though Halloween is over and the nights are drawing in I'm refusing to let go of Autumn and I'm not quite ready to admit that Christmas is just around the corner!
