Home animals hello november


If someone asked me what my least favourite month of the year was, I would say November, it always conjures up images of damp, grey, dismal days.

However I have to say that this year it has got off to an amazing start! The sun was shining into my greenhouse this morning making it look like a summer’s day.


If November continues to produce skies like this one it is definitely going up in my estimation.


The flowers are loving it too!


Every week when I go my greengrocers, I almost always like to come home with a little plant or two or like this morning, three!

I think they’re going to look lovely together in a little pot at my front door.


You can always be sure of an assistant when in the garden, this morning it was the lovely Lily!

The beginning of November has also been brightened by some happy mail!

The pretty little pincushion arrived today all the way from Australia from a lovely lady who is now Pixie’s mum! Thank you so much Elizabeth, I love it!

The new Orla Kiely book has also arrived, I’m so looking forward to reading it!


I’m also cracking on with the Christmas bunny making as well which keeps me busy in the evenings because no matter how lovely the days are my goodness it gets dark early now the clocks have changed.

So fingers crossed that November continues in the manner in which it has started.

Happy weekend my friends, thanks as always for visiting, I really appreciate it! 🙂

Hi Viviennes, I can’t imagine it is Novemberr already!!!! We also have had nice unseasoningly warm weather, great for walking. We change our clocks this weekend so will have to walk earlier in the day. Love your flowers and new cardi!!!! Have a great weekend, xoRobin

Just look at that blue sky! How lucky are you? It’s dismal here.
Love your new Cyclamen. It’s a beautiful colour. What a welcome sight it will be for visitors, as it graces your front door.
I’m hating these early dark nights. I just feel like jumping in to bed, with my hot water bottle and my Kindle (maybe some chocolate for good measure).
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and I hope the sun continues to shine for you. xxx

Happy November dear Vivienne. It’s a sunny start here but last night was really wet and cold. I think we have another storm on the brew. Glad to see you are enjoying your sunshine in the garden. I loooove the new bunny creation, your bunnies with a Christmas theme = Jane’s Delight. Have a great weekend, xx

Lots of lovely sunny photos, it really has been a cheerful autumn hasn’t it? I love your idea of buying a little plant each week from the greengrocer’s….I do a similar thing myself! The new bunny cardi is looking cute. Hope you have a lovely weekend, and Happy November, Vivienne!

Happy Xmas bunny making Vivienne…I love the colour of your new little cardigan (and the pretty button too, of course!) We’ve done quite well for autumn weather, haven’t we?…and your flowers are beautiful as always ….as is gorgeous Lily!
Happy Weekend,

P.S Love your little pincushion!

A lovely post Vivienne. It is not too nice here at the moment. The wind is picking up now and making the house chilly! You have bought some nice plants and they will brighten the place up when the weather does turn. Did you put the ads in Viv? I thought you had put a youtube video at the end of the post at first!!! x

Such a sweet little cardigan Vivienne! Wish you had your beautiful weather here. It’s terribly windy and wet.

Happy Sunday!

I do love a crisp, sunny autumn day, it bodes well for the rest of the month that November started so nicely! Perhaps the reds and yellows of the season are to foil the typically grey weather? I can’t wait to see the Christmas bunny, and what a lovely thank you gift from afar! Chrissie x

Hi Vivienne, Happy November to you!! I LOVE the flower photos; it frosted here long, long ago. My mums on the front porch are pretty droopy.
Lovely pin cushion, very thoughtful. Here’s to some new Christmasy bunnies…..

It doesn’t look like November at all in this post.
What an unusual pincushion. I’ve never seen one like it – very pretty.
Lovely new plants to brighten up your doorway.
