Brrr, chilly here.
Lovely blue skies for a change and loads of birds in our garden - lots of blue tits and starlings, a wren and our regular robin who hopped in through the dog flap last week and had to be rescued from the living room - he was beautiful and so tiny.

I made our Advent calendar a few years ago and I can't believe I had the patience (or the time..) to sew all those little stockings.
They're quite random sizes but they do the job - especially for small boys who ask every morning- 'Is it Christmas today??'
I loved this post on the Just So Festival website about over-ambitious Advent Calendars.

Loads of tempting books and a lovely little cafe. Did a bit of guilt-free Christmas shopping and managed to resist buying any books....

I had a great time at the Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience on Sunday, it was busy all day and I had some lovely neighbours - Hodge Podge ceramics and Emerald Bespoke Picture Framing
Today is rainy and pretty miserable out, so I'm being very organised and cooking our Christmas Cake, yum!

Since our visit to the dinosaurs last weekend, Dino Mania has taken over...
This is a very friendly Tyrannosaurus by Bill.
I'm busy getting ready for the Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience on November 22nd at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre near Leamington Spa. It promises to be a great Christmas shopping opportunity so come along - opening hours are 10am to 4pm.

Then we popped up to Chipping Campden to visit Hannah in the gorgeous Baby Days shop - she sells loads of lovely children's clothes, toys and baby accessories - we dropped off some New Baby Girl and Boy cards, and admired Hannah's own new baby, who was being shop baby for the day! Visit the Baby Days website for some unique Christmas gift ideas, or if you're in the area, pop into Cambrook Court, off the High Street in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire.

Speaking of wintry, we're off to Devon in the van tomorrow for the night, thinking it might get a bit chilly - will pack ALL the fleeces..

You know it's Autumn when the Mop comes to town, the lights shining in the dark and the smell of candyfloss, or 'candyfluff' as it's known in the Moody house.

I also love this amazingly intricate New York papercut by Famille Summerbelle - they also have one of London and Paris, but the NY one is definitely on my Christmas wishlist - would look great above the sofa..
And while we're in New York, I love the Sweet Fine Day blog - a tale of family and creativity in Brooklyn, with beautiful photos and recipes.

One of my lovely stockists - Three Little Pigs in Pershore took part and had some of my Cuppa cards on sale for Macmillan, plus the opportunity to paint a caricature on a mug, great idea!
