Birthday weekend.

It has been a good weekend. 

My mum and I spent Saturday afternoon browsing a vintage fair and the Charity shops, we drank pumpkin lattes and ate cake. 

It was our birthday treat.

 We found this Ercol dresser, that comes with a plate stand shelving attachment and just had to buy! I have one in my lounge (slightly different shape pattern on the cupboards) but how could I resist. I still don't know whether to keep or to sell. 
To have two would be greedy! 

But its AMAZING right? 
I think I will have people fighting over this. Especially with the stunning plate stand. 

This weekends top find!

And my Ercol sideboard. 

We got a few jobs done around the house. Little finishing touches that make such a difference. Like putting out blankets, putting up pictures and curtains etc. 

We went pumpkin picking. We got our pumpkin from a local grower near to where we live.
 I think its so important to support local farmers and I love local produce. 

Look at those pumpkins!

Yep, its feeling very Autumnal in our house right now.

And with the first frost of the Autumn this morning it has been a weekend of serious cosiness. 

I'm off to light some candles, bath the kids and get ready for x factor and downton. 

Enjoy your Sunday friends.

Homemaking over the weekend.

I am so looking to this weekend. I have booked Saturday off work, as a little birthday treat, and I am going to spend the whole weekend at home with my little family. 

I want to do some home making. 
Preparing the house for the coming cold months.
 Getting ready for the cosy days and dark nights. I want to layer all the beds with blankets and extra cushions. Finish some of the half started jobs. Mosey round the bootsale before the sun has even risen.  A slow cooked lunch on Sunday and some quality time with the children and my husband. 

Ahhh blissful.

I love being at home with my family. Making our little retreat a happy home with a good soul. 

What are you all doing this weekend?

October bliss.

I love October.
Cosy nights. Birthday girls. Slow cooked food. Crunchy leaves. The smell of bonfire's in the air. Dark, starry nights. Pumpkin pie and hot coffee. All hallows eve. The glow from a candle. New tights. Scary books. Long hot baths. Harvest festival. Apple picking. Misty morning's.
A time to slow down before the Christmas season begins.
