Fall Nesting Part 1

Melissa over at ‘Inspired Room’ is hosting a wonderful ‘Fall Nesting’ event this week 2-5th Sept and I thought I’d join in.

Nothing says Autumn to me more than blankets, snuggling and candles!ย  Here in the UK it’s pretty much going to be gray and dull for the next few months, so it’s essential to brighten up your home.ย  I think this is why the Scandinavian look has been so embraced here, light and bright are such a break from dark wintry weather.

Fall nesting is such a good idea, I love preparing for the winter.ย  Paul and Miss L know when it’s coming as I break out the flannel duvet covers, blankets and hot water bottles and clean like mad for winter as we can’t open the windows as much to get fresh air in.

Miss L and I have a favourite blanket which was crochet by my mother in law, it’s huge and we snuggled under it to read and watch TV and it comes out every winter. This winter it will be invaluable as utilities have shot up in price in the UK so I suspect we’ll be snuggling under it a lot!

Unfortunately pumpkins won’t be out in the shops here until Mid October, so I’m having to make do with orange roses.

  3. I love orange roses…they are so charming and perfectly “fall” looking! And I can’t imagine being able to plant pumpkins, how great! With my non-green thumb, I just know they would never make it to fruition, though. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  4. My pumpkins (sprouts) were eaten by my chickens! Bummer! I hope to have more next year!
    Your fall touches are perfect! I love a natural feel. The afghan that your mother in law made captured my heart! It reminds me of cool evenings snuggling with my own family. :o)
