Home bears lovely october


What a lovely month October has been, certainly around these parts anyway!

The garden is beginning to close down now but the hydrangeas are still looking good, nothing fades quite as beautifully as a hydrangea.


This is just a little selection of what has been in bloom during the month, the good weather definitely has prolonged the summer flowers.

At the moment I still have lots of nasturiums and cosmos in bloom and I even have some roses.


However despite the tailends of summer still being apparent it is getting very autumnal.


And as its the time of year for pumpkins, a certain little pumpkin of mine required a pumpkin hat!


I finished another little cardie for her as well, pictured above with a bunny cardie, which makes it look big but it really isn’t. 🙂


I have some more little autumn animals ready for my shop too.

First up is Beech the bear, named of course after one of our beautiful native trees.


This little hare is Hawley named after a variety of apple.


Meet Chanterelle, a mushroom girl has to have a mushroom name.


And finally this little acorn and squirrel loving girl is Oakleigh!

All these girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 26th October at 9pm (BST).

More information about my animals can be found here.

So another month is coming to an end and so, sadly, is British Summer Time with the clocks ‘falling back’ at the weekend, an extra hour in bed but darker evenings unfortunately.

However on the plus side my boy is home this weekend for a few days and the family will be altogether for some Halloween fun.

Thanks as always for dropping by and wishing you all a fun Halloween! 🎃

As always your girls are lovely. I so enjoy reading their names. Here in the US in New Hampshire it is also getting darker earlier. It recently turned cold. The leaves are falling. We’ve already had a little taste of snow. How lovely to see your flowers.

I agree Vivienne, October has had lovely weather. The colours of the foliage this year have been amazing. The pumpkin hat you made is so sweet! I bet your daughter is thrilled with the lovely things you make for Amelie. All your new creatures are lovely and I always have trouble picking a favourite – but why should I when I can like them all!!!? x

Such a cute little pumpkin hat Vivienne and your cardigans are so pretty. Yes, we’ve had a lovely October in our corner too but the weather has definitely changed in the last few days. Your garden is still looking beautiful as ever as are your new girls!
