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!

  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
