October 2014 still feels like summer in England, we are having very warm sunny weather and relishing every moment. We know autumn is upon us,though, because the leaves on the trees are starting to turn. You can’t fool trees, they know it’s October! This month will no doubt see a cooling of temperatures which means staying in and getting cosy. I’ll be planning some more crafts with my lavender harvest (it’s a bumper one this year!) and posting lots more recipes and house/garden ideas.

I love it when all the new season clothes make an appearance, this year pink is as strong as ever so I’ve updated my 2013 post with some more high street coat finds…..

One of my more popular posts has been DIY Shoe Storage, which shows some ideas I found while browsing the Pinterest site, a fabulous way to while away an hour or three! If you love your shoes, you will love these ideas!

Create storage for heels by attaching molding strips to a shelf. You can just lean it against the wall!


One of my favourite mid week meals is Chicken Wrapped in Bacon, super easy but really tasty, it goes well with Crushed Potatoes. Both are quick to cook which is perfect when you are short of time like me!
