Time .

A few weeks ago I went to an old lady's tiny house and I was intrigued to see all the alarm clocks set at different times, none of them actually going.
Each clock is set at the time of a birth in her family.
The first two are those of her husband and herself, the next three their sons and the last ones their grandchildren.
I loved the way such care and attention was given to simple everyday objects.

Mrs Bruin.

Another busy weekend, collecting more apples, making more jars of jelly.
Taking a quieter moment I was looking at Mrs Bruin, my teddy from when I was a little girl.
I don't know who made her for me but I have photos of us together from when I was tiny.
To me she is priceless.

Pear jelly.

Yesterday was yet another busy day.
I finished bottling and decorating the jars of pear jelly, the first time I've made it.
Then it was sewing another one of my linen bags.

More Autumn gifts.

This morning we gathered these wonderful parasol mushrooms from the field behind our house.
They will be eaten with out evening meal.
Whilst digging up the last of the potatoes the sunflowers were gathered and I'm now enjoying seeing them everyday in the kitchen.

Autumn bounty.

Today I've been out in the autumn sunshine collecting walnuts.
Whilst picking them off the grass I found a wonderful caterpillar- it had to come home with me too.
I've put it safely under a tree with some walnut leaves and I'm hoping that next year I might see it as a butterfly.

More treasures.

On Sunday at the brocantes I also bought the decorative gourds and two jugs.
The white one is hand thrown and just so elegant, the other reminds me of the gourds.

Pie of course !!!!!!

She just had to didn't she !

Brocante treasure !

Yesterday I went to two brocantes.
It was a lovely sunny day and I was lucky to find some treasures.
The one I'm showing you today I just love and I feel so lucky that it's now mine.
The quality is superb and all the pieces are there even some cologne left in some of the beautiful silver lidded bottles.
I am now going to try and find out who was lucky enough to have owned it, I think maybe it's their name is on the leather luggage label.

So I start.

The weather continues to be pretty bad, heavy rain outside.
So, I begin to work on cards and collaged hearts.
I have a fair coming up in December so need to get on.
