Hasn't the weather been glorious for November......
Had some wonderful walks along the beaches in blazing sunshine,
We have been able to bask in the autumn sunshine....
We collected sea shells for a Christmas present idea I have ..sea shell bunting!
We sat and talked, threw pebbles into the sea and did our special tricks!
We have spent time on Beer beach and Sidmouth beach too
We were even adopted by Bella for the afternoon, a fisherman's dog who spent hours chasing pebbles we threw for her, think we would still be doing it if she had her way.
Hope you have been enjoying the autumn sunshine too x

Hello peeps have been busy doing nothing as the saying goes ...
But I have got around to making a few lickel stocking fillers for the girls, vintage button hairgrips.....
And smelly sweater hearts....nice smelly not nasty smelly, they have a few drops of Fresh Linen oil on the stuffing and are made from old felted sweaters.....
Now most of the flowers of summer have faded I am taking great delight in my flower pictures
I love my Vernon Ward flowers.....
This plaster flower was found at a jumble sale, and I love the dark flower picture underneath
My latest flower acquisition..50p from a jumble sale, it had lots of marks all over it but I got it home and removed the print, cleaned the glass and it scrubbed up good as new!
This is my favourite...its paper mounted on a plaster plaque.....
And my giant floral standard lampshade which I have hung from the centre of the ceiling , which is the bane of my rather tall Hubsters life as he keeps banging his head on it, but as I say you have to suffer for beauty and I keep hoping it will knock some sense into him!
Hope you are all enjoying November ...and the slow build up to to the festive season
