Autumn, an Austen moment, and a Competition reminder

Funny old year isn't it? Autumn has obviously heard that "purple is the new black" or whatever else it is that the fashion world is telling us now and decided to jump on the bandwagon and become the new summer this year.

We've spent the weekend out and about enjoying the weather. This first picture was taken up on Bodmin Moor.

The next ones were taken at Pencarrow House. It has the most beautiful gardens, and can't you just imagine Mr Darcy walking towards you up that path? No? Just me then...





Finally, don't forget the Competition at Jaynes Attic to win six months free membership to my collectors club, the first part being Mr RolyPoly here. (I've put up another picture because this one shows the red colourway better, though its not so good of the white one)

Lovely pics Christine - weather has been great, hasn't it? Yep, I could definitely see Mr Darcy walking there. Would it be Colin Firth or the other chap though? LOL

Hi, Have just discovered your blog. Have to say I would love to see Colin Firth in his Mr Darch persona wandering out of the lake, dripping, towards me...
Not that really is a pleasant thought!

Oh, what lovely, inspiring photos, Christine... The one of Bodmin Moor just makes me want to cry it's so lovely... makes me think of *Home*...

And Oh, Yes!!! I most definitely see Mr Darcy, a la Matthew MacFadyen strolling through the garden... or on the moors right off the computer screen and into my study... ;-) Thanks for the lovely day dream...

I love your RolyPoly Santas... They are just adorable! :-)

And thanks ever so kindly for visiting my blog... your lovely words are an inspiration :-)
