October Wish List
The collection of items was inspired by my friend Ellie's amazing halloween/Autumn garlands. Ellie runs East End Press in Glasgow and produces just the most gorgeous product. There are so many screen printed garlands to choose from, my boys loved the bat ones - but they are all just beautiful works of art in themselves and a great way to add a spooky touch to your house with zero hassle. Find all of Ellie's banners here.
I swapped some of my kits for Ellie's banners at the Trade show we both did in September where I also swapped for some of this fortifying bath oil from MOA. It smells so minty and luxurious and just look at the packaging and design? Charlie designs all the packaging and ingredients from her home in Somerset. Check out her brand Magic Organic Apothecary for more of the story behind her products.
Glosters pottery is an independent business based in Wales producing beautiful ceramics. These match holders are kind of an essential with all the Autumn candles you'll be burning!
I haven't taken this Orange Uniqlo jumper off since I bought it a couple of weeks ago. It's just the perfect shade of yellowy orange, a real cheerful pop of Autumn colour. It's lambswool but not too itchy to wear on its own but i'll be layering it up as the weather gets colder.
I am not ready to give up my Birkenstocks yet and these cosy socks from The Mercantile London will see me through another month I reckon!
I love a Pumpkin Spice latte at this time of year but I do not love the price of them or how sweet they make them, so I've got my own Monin syrup at home and I can add a little bit to my coffee and get that PSL buzz for a fraction of the price.
I've just started reading this book Signs: The Secret Language of the Universe, the title, the fact it's a NYT bestseller and the beautiful cover convinced me this book was for me. A chapter in and i'm hooked and sure this is going to be a great cosy Autumn read.
And if you want the ultimate in Autumn cosiness why not curl up with one of our kits? May we recommend our cat kits for a seasonal twist on embroidery? Our Jane Foster cat kit and our Donna Wilson Mog are two of our most popular designs and are both great beginner kits. We've also just released a Halloween black cat kit which you can find here.
Joanie clothing have so many cute Halloween themed jumpers and tops. I love this black cat and there are some really cute t shirts too.
