Grape or Plum ?

Not sure if this wonderful autumnal colour is grape or plum but what I am sure of is that it is really lovely. I’ve found myself drawn to it this week with my knitting and crochet. It goes so well with mustard yellow, pale green and grey.

I noticed last weekend lovely shops like White Stuff and Avoca had so many clothes in these colours (so many that I wanted) !!! There are lots of home furnishings in these shades this season as well.

All this inspired me to create an Etsy Treasury which I entitled “Grape or Plum ?”

Hope you enjoy looking at it and checking out all the lovely shops as much as I enjoyed creating it.

September Tree

Well here we at the start of another new month and September has come in bright and sunny like all the rest of them with the exception of August!

Just look at that sky! Typical though that as the kids go back to school, the good weather returns!
This morning as I was taking my photographs there wasn’t a breeze, the sun was shining, it was warm, the birds were singing and ……..

the kittens were wrestling!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Honestly it was all so peaceful R.J. was lying in the sun minding his own business and Polly dropped in from what seemed like above and started messing about!! She even took me by surprise as I was taking R.J.’s photo and he was posing so nicely. They are ever so funny, never a dull moment!

Anyhow back to the September tree! It was full of all kinds of insects this morning.

Most of the leaves are still shiny and green.

Although we can see signs of what is to come!

I have to say though and this will amaze many of you, I have been thinking of autumn this week. I’ve been drawn to all things ‘rusty’ coloured and I have even bought some new clothes in those colours.

I even compiled a treasury over on Etsy using items made in those rusty/orange shades.

All of the items are gorgeous and if you click on any of the photos it will take you straight to that shop and if you click here it will take you directly to the treasury.

So there you go, me feeling autumny, who would have thought it!! However this morning was so lovely I’m thinking now that maybe we’re going to have an Indian Summer and have a few more weeks of sunshine! See, the autumny feeling didn’t last long, did it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you’re all having a good week and that you have a wonderful weekend ahead and as always, thanks for visiting! ๐Ÿ™‚
