Friday Favourites 209..

So, I know it's still August and therefore technically summer but the weather certainly seems to have taken a turn for the worse - plus, I'm off camping this weekend which pretty much guarantees that we're in for three days of rain.

Frankly, coming back from somewhere which has been averaging temperatures of 32C to this rainy miserable-ness, plus a few other things, are making me feel as though I need a bit of a metaphorical hug. And what better way to do this than to make the place a little more homely in readiness for the change of season? I keep being reminded that there are only 127 days until Christmas, and have already begun shopping for the big event. Madness? Maybe.

FF 209
001 // 002 // 003 // 004 // 005

001: This little candle holder is a lovely festive red, but not too festive that it couldn't be used at any time of the year, I think. 

002: Love the vintage look of this bee cushion and I think it would be a very welcome cosy addition to my chaise lounge. 

003: The greens of these plates make me think autumnal earthy colours, whilst the bug print appeals to my all prints, all the time nature. A welcome addition to my mismatched crockery collection.

004: Cooler autumn nights are always made better by snuggling up under a blanket, whether that's on the decking in the garden, or on the sofa in front of the fire - this pom pom one caught my attention and the colour is kinda festive. 

005: Endlessly waiting for the Christmas shop to open up, but HoF still have some bargains from last year - what could be better to get one into the cosy autumnal mindset than a new candle in Festive Treats scent..?

Am I the only one ready to embrace the change of season? Don't get me wrong, I love summer, but the cosy nights ahead also appeal.


  1. No to all suggestions other than Summer! I hate Autumn!

    1. Haha, well it's trying to have a little last ditch attempt at the weather.

  2. I love the tea light holder and the blanket! I'm actually really looking forward to Autumn now. I hate the shorter hours of daylight, but I love the fashion, the weather, and spending dark nights crafting and reading under cosy blankets. I can't wait to start lighting Yankee candles again, either. (I don't use them during the Summer because it gets too hot for me to bare). It's not mad that you've started Christmas shopping already; I actually started Christmas shopping in January to spread the cost! (Yes, I am crazy!) LOL. xx

  3. I've been Christmas shopping for months, definitely a fan of spreading the cost and picking up bits when I see them. I even notice things for bloggers I don't know and think 'oh they'd like this'. Also, that side plate is amazing, would look great on the wall.

    1. I agree - I buy Xmas things throughout the year as well.
