Early Autumn.

September, a month where Summer’s warmth lingers on as Autumn brings in nippy mornings and changing colours. These past couple of weeks I have definitely been feeling the Autumn vibe. Nuts and berries are abundant on the trees, sycamore helicopters are spinning in the breeze and the path through a nearby woodland is carpeted with acorns and conkers.

I am feeling especially Autumnal lately as I actually won this lovely Autumn themed Giveaway over on Paula’s ‘Typewriter Girl’ blog. What a wonderful surprise! I opened my parcel yesterday to find it filled with gorgeous gifts. There is a beautiful fabric covered notebook, a rather jaunty journal, four Fall themed notecards ( the photos taken by Paula herself) and even a bar of Green & Black’s Dark Chocolate, velvet edition. I feel utterly spoilt! Paula writes about her native Ireland, her glorious flower garden and her adorable Basset Hound Boris, amongst other things. Bob by her blog and say Hi. ๐Ÿ™‚

A combination of sunshine and showers today sent me ducking into a local cafรฉ for coffee and a treat. I couldn’t resist. ๐Ÿ™‚

What films remind you of Autumn?

I have been searching on good old Pinterest for films that get you in the mood for Autumn. Movies where you can snuggle cosy under a blanket and watch characters crunch about on golden leaves or get their hands on a book of spells. Here is a list of ~

Autumn Inspired Films.

You’ve Got Mail ( 1998), The Fantastic Mr Fox ( 2009), Practical Magic ( 1998), Dead Poets Society ( 1989), St Elmo’s Fire ( 1985), When Harry met sally ( 1989), Rushmore ( 1998), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Far From Heaven ( 2002), Beetlejuice (1988) and Hocus Pocus ( 1993).

What plans have you this Autumn?

  1. The goodies look fab. Enjoy them! I don’t really have specific Autumn films (I just jump from Summer to Christmas!) but I guess I’d go for Halloween type films like Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, which doubles up as a Halloween/Xmas film and actually bridges the gap quite nicely now I think about it X

  2. I haven’t made any plans for autumn yet… life has been busy and I feel like I’m still trying to catch up and get myself sorted and balanced again! I would however like to get out for some walks of course, and read lots of books and have a few cosy evenings. I’ll make it up as I go along as usual and see where it takes me.

    Your giveaway package is lovely – what a treat ๐Ÿ™‚

    Would you believe it, I’ve never seen any of the films on your list!

    1. Sounds lovely. I think you will enjoy exploring the countryside near your new place.
      I can’t believe you haven’t watched a single film on the list! X

  3. Thanks for your reminder of the beauty of Autumn, and also the list of films for a cosy night in. Iโ€™ve been focusing too much on the grey sky and rain and winds! Canโ€™t wait for a blue sky walk through colourful Autumn woods. And in the meantime Iโ€™ll cosy up and watch one of your films!

    1. Hopefully a few days of dry weather will come our way and we can really appreciate Autumn’s beauty. Looks ok today in the North West of England. Enjoy a cosy film night…or afternoon soon. X

  4. Well Shazza, just got to read your Uist post as well as this one and feel very relaxed and envious. I’ve been to Skye & looooved it, so all those gorgeous photos of your holiday brought back memories even though it was further north. We’ve also watched Monty Hall’s adventures & enjoyed. How lucky to win a lovely gift and you are the second one I’ve read this morning with a prize being shown. Thanks for sharing with lovely photos. Take care and huggles.

    1. Thanks Susan. I am surprised you have heard of Monty Halls but so happy that you have.
      It’s been nice winning such a fab prize. Am still enjoying the chocolate. X

  5. So many lovely signs of Autumn around, it’s a great time of year. You Got Mail is one of my favorites for this time of year. Mainly because I love the bookshop. How wonderful to receive such a lovely parcel of goodies:)

  6. I’ve no autumn plans as yet, but thinking of possibly trying to do an leaf ID to see if I can fit the fallen leaf with the tree, maybe? There is definitely a chill in the air and the nights are already drawing in. I’m looking forward to Christmas and possibly getting a bigger tree. I’m so fussy, depends if I see one I like ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    1. A leaf ID sounds a good idea! I am a bit rubbish with trees. Autumn is a particularly good time to learn though! I am thinking about maybe getting a real tree this year. Xx

      1. I am useless when it comes to tree ID too. I know an oak and Hose chestnut but not much else. Maybe I shall make a blog about it. We have a magnolia stellata tree but I wish I had bought a discovery apple tree now. What kind of tree would you like to buy? My acorns haven’t done anything yet! x

      2. Maybe it’s to soon for anything to happen yet with the acorns.
        A fruit tree sounds good!
        I wouldn’t mind a sweet chestnut tree, just because I do quite like chestnuts. ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. Lol totally read that wrong! You can get Christmas trees that are potted as well as cut, so you could have one in the garden. We had a cut one years ago and it three needles all over the place. I like my black tree, but want a larger on, don’t know where to put it though, but have more ornaments for the size of tree now. It’s amazing how much you collect in a few years. ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      4. I have got quite a few ornaments now too. Our fake tree is fine. Just feel like a real one would be nice for a change. Have wooden floors so at least the needles wouldn’t get stuck in the carpet. Xx
