Well not quite, but nearly. On Sunday, we had a little walk around some local woods. We were trying to find sweet chestnuts, but soon gave up when we worked out we were way too late. But this didn't bring me down (I just bought some in the supermarket instead), and made the most of our walk. The weather was refreshingly dry and crisp. The sun was low in the sky, giving everything an enchanting glow.
Not only that, but I found some interesting looking fellas growing around the leaves... Doesn't this one look like slithers of parmesan cheese??! Maybe it's just me ;-)
And this one with a little pool of water, how delicate...
This one was truly truly tiny!! If I'd put my foot down for scale, that's probably all you'd see, my foot - and let's face it, that doesn't make for a good or even remotely interesting photo!
An expected package also came at the weekend... and it was brilliant!! I knew I'd won a little giveaway over at Swirly Arts, but I wasn't exactly sure what I'd be getting. Well all I can say is that I'm super happy with what I got!!!! Thank you Lynsey! A selection of gift tags and lots of envelopes, including some christmassy ones which are going to be put to good use very soon indeed!
So, halfway through the week already. Last night was Kirsty's Homemade Christmas on TV. Did anyone watch it? What did you think of it? I must admit I was only half watching it, doing crafty stuff (more on that some other time!), but I wasn't too impressed I guess. I enjoyed watching her Homemade Home programme earlier on in the year, but really, the average person can't really get to do what she does on a budget. Cutting your own Christmas tree? Making your own glass bauble?? Very nice ideas, but let's face it, it's not exactly for everyone is it. I'll give her another chance and watch it tonight (and probably tomorrow as well because I'm a sucker for it!), maybe she'll come up with more affordable and realistic projects. To be continued!
Have a lovely Wednesday x
