Random Autumnal snippets....

The neighbouring fields are ploughed and the trees and hedgerows are turning their Autumnal colours now.

Virginia creeper putting on a glorious display at the front of the house,

And a green Acer under planted with green hostas is now a beautiful red with soggy yellow hostas.

New additions to the Paris directory of 1910 from a fellow exhibitor, one with a very tatty linen cover
but incredibly fascinating inside.

And 4 large French glass jars perfect for dried hydrangeas.

The Fairs continue with great gusto and at times I struggle to keep up with new stock.

The latest purchase for displaying interesting little pieces on my stand came from TK Maxx....a shadow box with pins to keep everything in place.

An absolute master stroke...

Delicious homemade, hedgerow blackberry and apple pies from our lovely neighbour...a great cook who often passes her "extras" over the fence,

Figs and Physallis...bitter and sweet

And finally a treat for my feet,

New shoes...
So comfortable and reduced price too!

With an Autumnal feel...

 What is that saying?  "When I grow old I'm going to wear purple"

I think I might have started....
