Autumn is here. You can feel the crispness creeping into the air. Clear sunny days but that edge of chilly. Leaves are starting to change colour and green grass is slowly becoming a patch work of oranges, yellows and browns. Where walks in parks involve dodging falling acorns as a brisk breeze encourages them to head south for the winter. The change feels good. A change that makes you pull things closer to your chest to be wrapped in arms. A change that sees you dig out the comfy winter pyjamas and don the fluffy slippers. A change that makes you want to eat mashed potato and hearty vegie soups. I love a bit of Autumn.

I am loving autumn too- and these knee high red socks and red shoes. I have been looking for plain knee high socks for my little girl with no luck.

It is so fun to read your post as always-especially when we have had a long winter and still awaiting the weather to catch up with the calendar! It is just barely starting to show signs of spring here! Enjoy your autumn dear blogging buddy! Oh and the dress is very sweet, and your daughter looks absolutely darling in it!~Hugs&Smiles~Tam!

We are going into Spring, but today it doesn't feel like it, we are expecting a spring snow this afternoon. But, autumn is one of my favorite times of the year.

Hello hello!!
Thankyou for your lovely comment!
I'm glad you got a laugh.
As I was reading through this, I got a memory of being told about who I believe is you.
Beth who volunteers at the opshop in Eltham may have mentioned you when I was talking about having a market myself.
I'm not sure what relationship you were to her, but your blog rings a bell.
I could be completely off the mark, but it'd be a small world if I was right!
Anyway, you have a lovely blog, and make some darling things!!
